The Supreme Court on Friday vacated its interim order providing for 10 per cent reservation to the scheduled castes and scheduled tribes in the all-India quota for post-graduate medical courses.

A Bench headed by Justice K G Balakrishnan passed the order after the Centre gave an undertaking that from next year it would make a provision for granting reservation to SC/ST candidates in the all-India quota.

He said admissions this year should be free of reservations in the 50 per cent all-India quota as this was not provided for in the prospectuses already issued. The reservations will, however, continue in the 50 per cent state quota.

The bench had passed the interim order on April 24 on a writ petition filed by a batch of 14 doctors challenging the method of calculating seats reserved for SC and ST  candidates in post-graduate medical courses.
