SC trashes pleas against PG med quota ordinance


The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed petitions filed by open category medical students challenging the new ordinance issued by the Maharashtra government to accommodate Maratha students in post graduate admissions for 2019-20 too.

The SC, however, gave liberty to the petitioners to move Bombay high court. A day after Governor Ch. Vidyasagar Rao had signed the ordinance amending the legislation regarding reservation for the Socially and Educationally Backward Classes (SEBC), postgraduate medical students from the open category had, on Tuesday, rushed to the Supreme Court to challenge it.

The SC had, on May 9, while upholding a judgement of the Nagpur bench of Bombay high court which barred the new 16% quota under the SEBC Act of 2018, granted the state one week extension till May 25 to complete selection of seats for MDS/MD/MS courses. The initial deadline was May 18. The SC last week extended the deadline to May 31. In the meantime, the state also brought in an ordinance to benefit postgraduate medical aspirants from the Maratha community. The ordinance will benefit students who had secured admission under the Maratha quota, but were affected after Supreme Court stayed the process.

It amended Section 16(2) of the Maharashtra State Reservation (of seats for admission in educational institutions in the state and for appointments in the public services and posts under the State) for Socially and Educationally Backward Classes (SEBC) Act, 2019, which said the legislation shall not apply to institutions where the admission process had been initiated before commencement of the Act.

The HC, meanwhile, has reserved judgment on a bunch of petitions challenging the constitutional validity of the 2018 SEBC Act itself
