OBC quota in medical: HC to pronounce orders on July 27
CHENNAI [Maha Media]: The Madras High Court on Friday said it would pronounce orders on July 27 on a batch of pleas, including one by the Tamil Nadu government, against the Centre’s decision not to grant 50 per cent quota to OBCs in medical seats surrendered by the state in all-India quota (AIQ) for under-graduate, PG and dental courses in 2020-21.
The First Bench, comprising Chief Justice AP Sahi and Justice Senthil Kumar Ramamoorthy, reserved orders after a marathon hearing on the batch of petitions.
The state government and some political parties such as DMK, All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), CPI (M) and CPI and others had moved the court on the issue. The parties throughout the hearing contended that the Central government is only an agent and a counseling authority to fill the seats according to the reservation.
