Bombay High Court dismisses pleas against Maratha quota under SEBC
| Friday | 12th July, 2019
In view of the court order, the Maratha community students will get 12% reservation under the SEBC category for the admission for the undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the current academic year 2019-20.
The amendment was introduced to make applicable with retrospective effect reservations in admissions to SEBC classes in medical and dental undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
However, the government counsel informed the court that the online admission process had already begun and the 12% quota will be applicable to Maratha students under SEBC category at the time of admission.
The court upheld the government's argument and ruled that 12% reservation for undergraduate and postgraduate students will benefit from the same in the admission for 2019-20.
The court, however, reduced the 16% quota proposed by the government and reduced it to 12% in education and 13% in government jobs.
