Supreme Court to decide on bench for EWS reservation pleas

FILE PIC: PTI
Supreme Court has said that it would decide whether the pleas challenging the Centre's decision to grant 10 per cent reservation to Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) are to be referred to a Constitution bench for adjudication. 

The Court will continue the hearing today on a batch of pleas challenging the validity of the Constitution (103 Amendment) Act, 2019 on the ground that economic criterion cannot be the sole basis for reservation.
 
A bench headed by Justice S A Bobde yesterday observed that reservation is an exception to the concept of equality and it is intended to achieve equality of opportunity. The hearing remained inconclusive yesterday. the bench said it would hear the matter today. 

The apex court had earlier refused to stay the Centre's decision to grant 10 per cent quota in jobs and admissions to the economically weaker section of citizens. However, the court had agreed to examine the validity of the law and issued a notice to the Centre on the pleas.
