The Bombay High Court on Monday struck down the Maharashtra Government's 90:10 reservation formula for admission in junior colleges, ruling that it was arbitrary and devoid of merits.

The court gave its ruling on a bunch of petitions filed by parents of students challenging the state government's June 18 proposal to reserve 90 per cent seats in first year junior colleges (standard eleven) for SSC board students.
