SC quashes HC stay on OBC quota
The Supreme Court on Friday vacated the Kolkata High Court order staying implementation of 27 per cent quota for OBCs in post graduate courses including in IIMs. The Bench said that when the apex court had upheld the validity of the act providing the OBC quota, there was no question of a High Court staying its implementation.
However, the court said, subject to the final outcome of the matter before it, all admissions will be provisional in post graduate courses in central educational institutions under the act. The Court stayed all proceedings relating to OBC quota that are pending in the High Courts of Delhi, Calcutta and Bombay.
It also issued notice to those petitioners who were opposing the implementation of government memorandum in different high courts on the Centre’s petition seeking transfer of those matters to the apex court.
