The Supreme Court has decided that a person belonging to a reserved category is eligible to reservation benefits in one of the successor states of Bihar or Jharkhand, but not in both successor states at the same time after their reorganisation in November 2000.

Members of the reserved category who are residents of the successor State of Bihar and engage in open selection in Jharkhand are considered as migrants, and they can participate in the general category without claiming the advantage of reservation, and vice versa, according to the Supreme Court.
