Bombay HC Approves Maharashtra’s Maratha quota but reduces it to 12-13%

The Bombay High Court on Thursday upheld the constitutional validity of reservation for the Maratha community in government jobs and education. However, the quota percentage will be reduced from 16 to 12 or 13 percent, as recommended by the State Backward Classes Commission. The court was hearing a bunch of petitions challenging Maharashtra government’s decision granting a 16 percent reservation to the Maratha community. The reservation will be in addition to the existing 52 percent overall reservation. The government means to alleviate the Maratha community, which it considers socially and economically backward.
