Maratha quota: SC seeks states’ response over 50% reservation

Mar 08, 2021 16:29 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The Supreme Court on Monday issued notices to all state governments to get their response on whether Maratha reservation could be allowed beyond the 50 per cent threshold, Bar & Bench reported. A 4-judge Constitution Bench issued formal notices to the states and posted the matter for hearing on March 15. The bench will also stipulate on the 1992 Supreme Court judgment, which caps the reservation to 50 per cent. The apex court was hearing appeals filed against a judgment of the Bombay High Court upholding the validity of the Maharashtra State Reservation for Socially and Educationally Backward Classes Act.
