Supreme Court quashes Maharashtra law granting reservation to Maratha community

The Supreme Court on Wednesday quashed the Maharashtra law granting reservation to the Maratha community in admissions and government jobs in the state. The top court made it clear in its judgment that people from the Maratha community cannot be declared as educationally and socially backward community to bring them within the reserved category.

A five-judge bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan, L Nageswara Rao, S Abdul Nazeer, Hemant Gupta and S Ravindra Bhat said that it finds no exceptional circumstance to justify exceeding the 50 percent cap set by Indra Sawhney judgment.
