SC refuses to stay decision to grant reservation to EWS category

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday refused to stay the Centre’s decision to grant 10 percent quota in jobs and education to economically-weaker sections (EWS) of the society, saying the matter requires hearing at length and posted the matter for hearing on July 16.

A bench of Justices S.A. Bobde and B.R. Gavai was hearing a bunch of applications seeking to put on hold the appointments being made under 10 percent quota for EWS in the unreserved category.

The petitions contended that 10 percent quota for EWS was in breach of the 50 percent ceiling declared by the top court by its earlier Constitution Bench judgments.
