Jaipur, Oct 29 (PTI) Ahead of the call for agitation given by the Gurjar Aarakshan Sangarsh Samiti, a Rajasthan cabinet committee has taken a decision on their three key demands, according to a minister.

Minister of State for Youth Affairs and Sports Ashok Chandna said the decision on the three key points was taken at a meeting on Thursday.

Chandna said all 1,252 candidates belonging to the More Backward Classes (MBCs), who have completed their probation period, will be given regular pay scale by the state government.
