Most of the Jat families are settled in the border areas and during tension on the Indo-Pak border, they had to shift to safer place due to which they face heavy losses.
Jat community is still socially, economically, politically and educationally weak and in order to uplift and improve their living standard, the reservation is required to be given to the Jat Community of J&K State so that they can compete with others.
The youths belonging to Jat Community are also facing lot of problem while enrolment in Military, Para Military Forces and other civil departments because they cannot compete with other candidates.
The Jat Community of J&K is eager to get the reservation being the minority as well as socially, educationally, economically and politically backward.
