The Supreme Court gave its verdict today on the issue of Maratha Reservation Case. The Maratha reservation has been canceled by the Supreme Court. This information was given by petitioner Vinod Patil. The Supreme Court did not accept the recommendation of the Gaikwad Committee. The Supreme Court termed Maratha reservation as ultra virus. The Supreme Court denied the need to revise the decision given on Indira Sawhney’s case. In this judgment of 1992, the Supreme Court had fixed the maximum limit of reservation to 50 percent.
The reservation given to the Maratha society by the Devendra Fadnavis government, which was upheld by the High Court with little amendment, has been canceled by the Supreme Court. Today (Wednesday, May 5) at 10:30 in the Supreme Court, in front of the bench of 5 justices (Justice Ashok Bhushan, Justice Nageswara Rao, Justice S. Abdul Nazeer, Justice Hemant Gupta, Justice S. Ravindra Bhat) On the hearing that lasted from 15 March to 26 March, the Supreme Court began to pronounce the verdict. The Supreme Court reserved the verdict on 26 March. Today, the Supreme Court ruled on it.
Was looking for a solution to these questions Supreme Court
Does the state legislature have the right to declare a society or caste-specific socially and economically backward? Can reservation be given beyond the maximum limit of 50 percent of reservation fixed by the Supreme Court in 1992? Is Maratha reservation valid? These were some important questions on which everyone was waiting for the decision of the Supreme Court. Because with this decision, the direction and condition of the demand for reservation of Jat, Gujjar and Patel is to be decided.
Meeting held at the residence of the Chief Minister before the Supreme verdict
Earlier, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has called a meeting of the Maratha Reservation Subcommittee on the decision of the Supreme Court on Maratha reservation at 9:30 in the morning at his Varsha Niwas. This meeting is just beginning. Discussion is started on the strategy to be decided in the meeting in Maharashtra after the decision of the Supreme Court. State Chief Secretary Sitaram Kunte, Advocate Kumbhakoni, Home Minister Dilip Valsay Patil, Maratha Reservation Subcommittee Chairman Ashok Chavan, Transport Minister Anil Parab, Municipal Development Minister Eknath Shinde are present in this meeting.
This is how the case reached the Supreme Court
In 2018, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Maharashtra accepted the Marathas as backward on the suggestion of the Gaekwad Commission and announced 16 percent reservation. Backwards protested. The Gaikwad commission was said to be bogus. It was said that the representation of backward among the members of the commission was negligible. Therefore, the report of the Gaekwad Commission was rejected by the backward. The matter reached the High Court. The High Court reduced the reservation to 13 percent in jobs and 12 percent in education. It was challenged in the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court granted a stay.
Now the reason for giving this example is that Marathas could not be given reservation in the current frameworks. Because the backward class is not ready to consider the Marathas as backward. Therefore Marathas were given separate reservation. In such a situation, the reservation limit was exceeded 50 percent. However, in many states, the reservation limit has exceeded 50 percent. But a petition is pending against all of them. Now the time has come to find a solution to this problem.
