The Centre will consult the Law Ministry on the Supreme Court direction that a report of Parliamentary Standing Committee examining the issue of 27 per cent OBC reservation in central elite education institutions be placed before it.

"It (the apex court direction) is not a jolt. We will discuss the matter with the Law Ministry and take necessary steps," Parliamentary Affairs Minister PR Dasmunsi told reporters after a Cabinet briefing in New Delhi on Monday.

Dasmunsi said that as Parliamentary Affairs Minister, it was his duty to see the report was first tabled in Parliament.
