Stung by reports of division in the Oversight Committee set up to prepare a roadmap to implement reservation for Other Backward Classes in elite educational institutions, its Chairman Veerappa Moily on Friday said no decision has been taken to implement the quota on a staggered or deferred basis.

A day after one of its members B L Mungekar, who is also a Planning Commission member, strongly advocated the need to implement the proposal in one go, Moily said, "It is not correct to say that the committee has taken any decision to suggest the implementation of reservation for OBCs on a staggered or deferred basis."

"Neither the chairman nor any member of the committee has formed any opinion about it. The discussions are in a fluid stage and a reference is purely speculative," Moily said in a statement.

After the Committee's meeting on Thursday, former Karnataka chief minister had said that while reservation in central educational institutions can be done in one go, in state universities, private and deemed universities, it can be done later.

Various options were being deliberated with regard to implementaion of reservations, he had said.
