Gujarat HC quashes 10% quota for economically backward classes

Gujarat HC quashes 10% quota for economically backward classes:  The Gujarat high court on Thursday quashed the state government's notification granting 10% reservation for the economically backward classes (EBCs) in educational institutions.

With an eye on 2017 assembly elections, the Anandiben Patel government had issued a notification on May 1, 2016 granting 10% quota for EBCs in higher education and government jobs.

The state government's decision to grant quota to EBCs was challenged before the Gujarat high court in June. The court had issued a notice in response to a petition filed by a Rajkot-based writer and social worker, Jayantibhai Manani. The petitioner had urged the high court to strike down the May 1 ordinance named, "The Gujarat Unreserved Economically Weaker Sections (Reservation of Seats in Educational Institutions in the State and of Appointments and Posts in Services under the State) Ordinance" as well as the May 5 Government Resolution (GR) by which 10% reservation was provided to EBCs over and above the existing 49% reservation on the basis of caste and community backwardness.

The petitioner had cited the Supreme Court order in the Indra Sawhney case which had challenged reservations granted to OBCs on the recommendations of the Mandal commission in the early 1990s.
