1. In national interest, scrap quota in higher education institutions: Supreme Court
2. Emphasising what the apex court held 27 years ago, the bench said it is now “inclined” to convey the same message to the central and state governments over reservation in institutions of higher education.
3. A bench noted that despite several reminders to central and state governments to make merit the primary criteria for admissions into super-specialty courses, the ground reality remains that reservation often holds sway over merit.
4. Regretting that some “privilege remains unchanged” even after 68 years of independence, the Supreme Court held Tuesday that national interest requires doing away with all forms of reservation in institutions of higher education, and urged the Centre to take effective steps “objectively”.
A bench of Justices Dipak Misra and P C Pant noted that despite several reminders to the central and state governments to make merit the primary criteria for admissions into super-specialty courses, the ground reality remains that reservation often holds sway over merit.
5. “The fond hope has remained in the sphere of hope… The said privilege remains unchanged, as if (it is) to compete with eternity,” the bench remarked,
adding that it concurs completely with what the Supreme Court had ruled in 1988 in two judgments.
6. In these two cases, while dealing with the issue of reservation in super-specialty courses in medical institutions, the top court had said : -
“there should really be no reservation”
since it is in the general interest of the country for improving the standard of higher education, and thereby improving the quality of available medical services to the people of India.
7. “We hope and trust that the Government of India and the state governments shall seriously consider this aspect of the matter without delay and appropriate guidelines shall be evolved…” these judgments stated.
Emphasising what the apex court held 27 years ago, the bench said it is now “inclined” to convey the same message to the central and state governments over reservation in institutions of higher education.
8. “Therefore, we echo the same feeling and reiterate the aspirations of others so that authorities can objectively assess and approach the situation so that the national interest can become paramount,” the court said.
9. It also referred to a body of judgments, asking government authorities to abstain from relaxing the eligibility criteria basing it on various kinds of reservation since it would defeat the very object of imparting the best possible training to selected meritorious candidates.
10. The bench made these observations as it delivered its judgment on a batch of petitions, which had challenged an eligibility criteria for admissions into certain super-specialty medical courses in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Tamil Nadu.
11. They allowed only those having domicile in the three states to appear for the examination, thereby making the seats reserved only for such candidates, based on residence.
12. The bench said it cannot interfere with the admission process in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana since a Presidential Order has created an exception and the constitutionality of this Order had not been challenged.
13. But it agreed to examine on November 4 whether Tamil Nadu could do the same and allow this form of reservation in a post-graduate programme.
14. Even as it expressed its inability to adjudicate the constitutionality of the special privilege granted to Andhra Pradesh and Telangana under Article 371-D of the Constitution and the Presidential Order, the bench observed that such privileges ought to be reconsidered by the governments and steps be taken.
1. FIRST REACTION IS FROM Dr. P. A. Fazal Gafoor of Muslim Educational Society ( MES ) KERALA.
2. He vehemently attack on this Supreme Court Order.
3. He challenges quoting constitution.
4. A selfish motive of this man clearly visible.
5. Here the opposition, is merely for the sack of opposition.
My view points
1. Merit is the criteria for any selection, recruitment, admission, to any posts, any higher education after primary education, any jobs, ....
2. Religion, caste, creed, factors should not interfere in this regard.
3. Reservations, quotas, should NOT be considered.
4. Equal opportunity to all, this does not mean, some avail benefit of entering without any merits, because of reservation facility...
5. This is a cruelty against very best candidates, if meritless enjoy the entry by way of reservation.
6. If this tendency is allowed, in the future we will suffer with Stupid Incompetent Teachers, Scientists, Defence personals, Doctors, Engineers, IAS, IPS, IFS,Cadres and so on ....
7.Central, and State Governments, should NOT succumb under political pressures, and heed for the gain of few votes more...
8. Secularism and Reservation are two trump cards for all political parties, for their hate speeches, for mutual attacks.
9. No other National, or State needs are in their political agenda.
10. If Bharatham really wants to be Strong, Intelligent, Efficient, Capable Nation, these kinds of silly attitudes should be omitted, to take Bharatham forward to the 21st Century.
11. All honest sincere Bharatiya welcome this order.
12. An urgent need of the hour.
