16% Maratha quota over 50% cap valid, say petitioners

Petitioners supporting the 16% Maratha quota told the Bombay high court that the 50% cap on reservation was not part of the basic structure of the Constitution and hence, the state was not wrong in breaching it.
Petitioners argued that Article 342A — which grants exclusive powers to the President to notify a backward class — does not take away the right of the state to grant reservation to social and economic backward classes.(AFP/File Photo)

Maratha quota panel report scientific, accurate: HC told

The Gaikwad commission report, which became the basis to grant 16% reservation to Marathas under the socially and educationally backward class (SEBC) category, was accurate, scientific and much-needed, petitioners arguing in support of the quota told the Bombay high court (HC) on Wednesday.
According to the petitioners, the state deemed it necessary to have a separate survey for the community, as the previous commissions’ reports were not castebased and made only a passing reference to Marathas.(AFP)
