    W DELHI: In a setback for the Union government, the Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to stay Andhra Pradesh high court order quashing 4.5 per cent sub-quota for minorities in central educational institutions, including in IITs this year.

    The SC said the government's decision to implement 4.5% sub quota from January this year did not prima facie appear to be supported by constitutional provisions.

    The apex court said unlike the 27% reservation to OBC's in central educational institutions, the carving of 4.5% sub-quota is not supported by even a law.

    The SC said it appears that the carving out of 4.5% sub-quota was purely based on religious considerations.

    With today's decision of the apex court, the OBC students will get an additional 443 seats in IITs, which were kept aside for Muslims under 4.5% sub-quota.

    Wednesday is the last of counselling for IIT admissions and the government ended up disappointed being not able to push through the sub-quota in IITs.

    Still the Govt. has not learned it's lesson.

    The need of the hour is to provide quality education at the primary and secondary education, at affordable rates. Once this happens, there will be no need for reservations at higher levels of education.

    Centre moves Supreme Court for Muslim quota - The Hindu


    In 2011, the Centre announced a sub-quota of 4.5 per cent for socially and educationally backward people of minority communities.

    The Supreme Court on Wednesday agreed to hear the Centre’s application providing for a 4.5 per cent quota for Muslims within the Other Backward Classes quota in education and employment. The application, significantly, comes just months ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.

    A Bench comprising Justice K.S. Radhakrishnan and Justice Vikaramajit Sen, however, was not satisfied with the manner in which the application was drafted, and asked Solicitor-General Mohan Parasaran to file a proper petition to modify the earlier order refusing to stay the judgment of the Andhra Pradesh High Court quashing quota for Muslims.

    Mr. Parasaran submitted that in a similar case, the Supreme Court in March 2010 had permitted the Andhra Pradesh government to implement reservation for backward Muslims within the State till the matter was decided by a Constitution Bench.

    To avoid ambiguity and inconsistency, particularly when a larger Bench had passed an interim order on the same issue and when the matter had been referred to a Constitution Bench, it was only logical that the benefit was extended for the coming year also as per the two office memorandum.

    Senior counsel P.S. Narasimha, appearing for Krishnaiah, the petitioner in the High Court, opposed the Centre’s plea, saying it was politically motivated with an eye on the elections.

    In 2011, the Centre announced a sub-quota of 4.5 per cent for socially and educationally backward people of minority communities.



    Socially and educationally backward people of minority communities do need help from the Government

    But then its means failure of several Government policies for economic minorities. This means they have wasted such large amount of money just to increase reservation later

    %$$##@#$%% the quota system specially on religious grounds.

    The "real" religious minorities are doing fine due to their hard work and dedication.

Nation will reach the zenith when its all people are able to have education, work . We do need to change our attitude here.

    But don't you see the money government spend on useless projects.. If they are poor doesn't means entire money is for them.. Half of the country is already reserved for these people

    If government will not uplift poor Indians then who will uplift them ? This is what i am saying that reservation is there which is benefiting who are socially and economically backward from majority community and like the same Government has to do for Indians of minority community as they are even Indians like the rest and when its about national development , Government has to do things for all its citizens irrespective of religion.

    Now who is stopping minorities to go to school and get education?

    I have seen some real minorities who studied in govt schools and doing fine in life.

    In India no one wanna learn how to catch a fish but just want the fish cooked and put in a plate ready to be eaten.

    The problem which the socially and economically backward people face in the majority community, with the same problem even minority community goes through and we wont see a little difference in that suffering . Poor people suffers equally in all the religions its us we divide them on the basis of religion and make me to suffer so that we can rule over them.

    Its on the Government to look after all Indians and here government will make and give them opportunities. Even to fish things are needed and that government can provide them so that we can first learn to fish and then to cook.

    @feathers

    Question is not about minorities upliftment or not

    It is about timing .Why does so called secluar gov remembers minorities only durning election where there sleeping last 4 hears.they should have moved court earlier only.

    Also before providing reservation government has to provide/satisfy/follow procedure where gov has to prove that certain community is begin provide reservation because they where in past/present to be in backward state from others.

    Now problem for so called secular parties is that they want to provide reseravtion for all muslims irrespective of whether their status is good or bad.And supreme court doesnot approve so
