Postgraduate medical admissions: Maharashtra to overrule SC, take Ordinance route to restore Maratha quota
| Friday | 17th May, 2019
Admission process for postgraduate medical courses had already begun before the Maratha quota was cleared, the court had argued.
The BJP government in Maharashtra has decided to use the Ordinance route to reverse a Supreme Court judgment, barring the state from implementing the Maratha quota for admissions to postgraduate medical courses this year.
With state polls just five months away, the verdict could have potentially triggered another Maratha reservation agitation in the state.
The first issue came up with postgraduate medical examinations.
On May 2, the Nagpur bench of the Bombay High Court, while hearing a petition, had disallowed the quota for admissions for postgraduate medical courses on the grounds that the “reservation cannot be applicable with retrospective effect”.
