SC strikes down reservation for Maratha community in education & jobs

The Supreme Court of India on Wednesday has struck down the reservation for Maratha community in education/ jobs exceeding 50%.

A five-judge Constitution Bench comprising Justices Ashok Bhushan, L Nageswara Rao, S Abdul Nazeer, Hemant Gupta and Ravindra Bhat while pronouncing the judgment said that there was no valid ground to breach 50% reservation while granting Maratha reservation.

Justice Bhushan, reading out the judgment said, we do not find any reason in revisiting Indira Sawhney judgment. Justice Bhushan said that with respect to Article 342-A, we have upheld the Constitutional Amendment and it does not violate any Constitutional provision and therefore, we have dismissed the writ petition challenging the Maratha Reservation.

SC also made it clear in its judgement that people from the Maratha community cannot be declared as educationally and socially backward community to bring them within the reserved category.
