10% quota: No stay, Supreme Court issues notice to Centre : Supreme Court Doesn't Hold 10 Per Cent Quota But Will Examine Validity

Supreme Court Doesn't Hold 10 Per Cent Quota But Will Examine Validity

The Supreme Court on Friday rejected demands for a stay on the government’s move to bring 10% quota in jobs and admissions for the poor in unreserved categories, but said it would examine the issue.
A bench comprising Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and Sanjeev Khanna issued notices to the government on a host of petitions challenging the recent act which provided for this quota

The validity of the government's 10 per cent quota for the economically weak in jobs and education will be examined by the Supreme Court, which today sent notice to the centre but did not put the scheme on hold. The court's decision means the quota is unlikely to be either scrapped or kept on hold before the national election due by May.
The centre has to get back to the Supreme Court within three weeks on the move that was introduced as a constitutional amendment, passed in parliament and enacted in a matter of days.

The judges including Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi will hear a batch of petitions challenging the decision, which takes the total quotas beyond the 50 per cent cap set by the Supreme Court. Under the new law, those who earn less than Rs 8 lakh a year and have less than five acre land qualify for the quota

According to one petitioner, the quota push was done with an eye on the vote bank, and the changes were “manifestly arbitrary” as it “imposes” reservation on unaided institutions which do not receive any aid from the state.

The petitioners have contended that the 10 per cent reservation for the EWS goes against the Supreme Court ruling that total reservation should not exceed 50 per cent.

Declining to stay the ten per cent reservation introduced by the BJP-led NDA government for the economically weaker section of the general category, the Supreme Court Friday issued notice to the central government and said it “will examine” whether the move was constitutional.

“We will examine… Issue notice, returnable in four weeks. No stay for the present. The matters will be heard after pleadings are complete,”a bench of Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Sanjiv Khanna said on a batch of six petitions which challenged The Constitution (One Hundred and Third Amendment) Act, 2019 introducing the EWS quota. The petitioners have contended that the 10 per cent reservation for the EWS goes against the Supreme Court ruling that total reservation should not exceed 50 per cent
