Supreme Court cancels Maratha reservation in Maharashtra, says ‘No need to revisit 50% ceiling limit

The Supreme Court, on Wednesday, struck down the amendment granting 13 per cent reservation to Marathas to education and employment. Reading the judgment, Justice Ashok Bhushan said that with respect to Article 342-A, we have upheld the Constitutional Amendment and it does not violate any Constitutional provision and therefore, 'we have dismissed the writ petition challenging the Maratha Reservation'. The SC also made it clear in its judgement that 'people from the Maratha community cannot be declared as educationally and socially backward community to bring them within the reserved category. Supreme Court's five-judge Constitution bench consisted of Justices Ashok Bhushan, L Nageswara Rao, S Abdul Nazeer, Hemant Gupta and Ravindra Bhat.
