The commission's recommendations were approved by the cabinet, and it was decided to form a sub-committee for further proceedings, it said.
The sub-committee will be headed by Revenue Minister Chandrakant Patil, the order said.
Its members will be Education Minister Vinod Tawde, PWD Minister Eknath Shinde, Co-operation Minister Subhash Deshmukh, Water Conservation Minister Ram Shinde, Energy Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule, Tribal Affairs Minister Vishnu Savara and a secretary of the General Administration Department.

The Maratha community has been demanding reservations in government jobs and educational institutes for long.
Speaking in the Assembly earlier in the day, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had said that Marathas will be provided reservation over and above the existing 52 per cent quota in the state.
