Maratha Reservation :Maharashtra Govt Files Caveat In Supreme Court [Read Petition]
The Maharashtra Government has filed a caveat petition in the Supreme Court, anticipating challenge against the legislation passed by the assembly on November 30, providing 16% reservation to Marathas in job and education.
The bill was unanimously passed, in view of the long standing demand by the Maratha community. At present, Maharashtra has 52% reservation, and the Maratha quota has taken it to 68%.
The caveat petition filed through Advocate Nishant R Katneswarkar has prayed that no order be passed in any petition concerning the Maratha legislation, without hearing state government.
