SC sends notice to Maharashtra govt, says ‘Maratha reservation not retrospective’

The Supreme Court on Friday issued a notice to the Maharashtra government seeking its reply on the appeal filed in the Maratha reservation case.

 
Supreme Court refused to stay Maratha reservation in the educational institution and government jobs.
 
A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said that the Maharashtra state government's decision to grant reservation to Maratha people and Bombay High Court's verdict upholding its decision cannot be implemented with retrospective effect.
 
The bench was hearing two appeals, including one filed by J Laxman Rao Patil challenging the high court order that upheld the constitutional validity of the quota for the Maratha community in education and government jobs in Maharashtra.
