Thiruvananthapuram: The Nair Service Society (NSS) has suggested adopting of the creamy layer norm, fixed by the Supreme Court, to identify the economically backward sections in the forward community. It also wanted a permanent commission appointed to review the process.

NSS general secretary P.K. Narayana Panicker, treasurer P.N. Narendranathan Nair and legal secretary N.V. Ayyappan Pillai, who met the members of the National Commission for Economically Backward Classes, also urged the commission to recommend the setting up of a corporation for the welfare of such sections.

Addressing a press conference after meeting the commission members, Mr. Panicker said that the NSS team had given its views to the commission on the criteria for identifying such economically backward sections, the quantum of reservation for these sections in government jobs and education and other concessions that could be provided to them.

The NSS general secretary alleged that the State government had deliberately concealed information about the national commission’s visit to the State on a fact-finding mission.
