All Members,


Respected family members of this great holy Nation.


REPORT : -


The Indian Express‎ : -

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.


Report Ends.


NOTE :

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.

Thank you for reading,

JAIHIND
