Supreme Court Refuses To Stay Maratha Reservation, Issues Notice To Maharashtra Govt

The Supreme Court on Friday refused to put a stay on the Maharashtra government's decision to grant reservation to Maratha community members in the educational institutions and state government jobs. The top court also sought a response from the Devendra Fadnavis government on pleas challenging its move to grant reservation to Marathas.

According to reports, the top court said that the Maharashtra government's decision to grant reservation to the Maratha people and Bombay High Court's verdict upholding its decision cannot be implemented with retrospective effect.

The apex court, however, said that it will hear the appeal for quashing of reservation for Marathas for admission in the educational institution and government jobs in Maharashtra.

The top court of the country also issued a notice to the Maharashtra government while responding to an appeal filed in the Maratha reservation case which challenged the Bombay High Court's decision  in this regard.
