No stay on Economic Reservation by Supreme Court, early hearing likely

Murali Krishnan February 8 2019

The Supreme Court today refused to stay the Constitution (103rd) Amendment which introduced economic reservation up to ten percent for financially weaker sections of the general category population.

This is the second time the Court has said that it will not stay the amendment.

A Bench of Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjeev Khanna was hearing the petition  filed by Tehseen Poonawalla challenging the  Amendment Act.
