In a boost to Fadnavis govt, HC upholds Maratha quota
Bombay high court keeps the quantum of quota at 12% in education and 13% in jobs
HC says a state govt was within its rights to raise the quota beyond the mandated 50%
In a massive legal and political victory for the Devendra Fadnavis government less than four months ahead of the assembly polls in Maharashtra, the Bombay High Court on Thursday upheld a state government law giving quota in education and jobs to the Maratha community. The HC, however, curtailed the quantum of quota from 16% to 12% in education and 13% in jobs.
