New Delhi: The Supreme Court, on Wednesday struck down the amendment granting reservation of 13 per cent to Marathas to education and employment. The SC also made it clear in its judgement that 'people from the Maratha community cannot be declared as educationally and socially backward community to bring them within the reserved category'. Supreme Court's five-judge Constitution bench consisting of Justices Ashok Bhushan, L Nageswara Rao, S Abdul Nazeer, Hemant Gupta and Ravindra Bhat pronounced its judgment on petitions challenging the constitutional validity of a Maharashtra law that grants reservation to the Maratha community in education and jobs. Reading the judgment, Justice Bhushan said that with respect to Article A, we have upheld the Constitutional Amendment and it does not violate any Constitutional provision and therefore, 'we have dismissed the writ petition challenging the Maratha Reservation'. The Supreme Court had reserved the judgment on the matter of whether the verdict of the apex court, which capped the reservation at 50 per cent, needed re-examination.
