SC to hear pleas on 10% EWS quota on May 2

New Delhi: The Supreme Court will hear on May 2 a batch of applications seeking to put on hold the appointments being made under 10 per cent quota for economically weaker section (EWS) of society in the unreserved category.

The petitions contended that 10 per cent quota for EWS was in breach of the 50 per cent ceiling declared by the top court by its earlier constitution bench judgments.

A bench of Justice S.A. Bobde and Justice S. Abdul Nazeer on Monday agreed to hear applications as senior counsel Rajeev Dhavan said that appointments once made under 10 per cent quota would be difficult to be reversed at a later stage.

Dhavan said this as Justice Bobde said that the court would say that all these appointments would be subject to the outcome of the challenge to constitution's 103 amendment that provides for 10 per cent reservation beyond 50 per cent for the SC/ST and the OBCs.

Opposing the plea, Attorney General K.K. Venugopal said that the prayer was declined in February and March.

Dhavan replied that the court declined to hear the plea "at that stage" and was not refused outright.
