Bombay HC to deliver Maratha reservation interim stay verdict on April 10

Mumbai/IBNS/UNI: A division bench of Chief Justice D K Upadhyaya and Justice Arif Doctor of the Bombay High Court on Tuesday indicated that it would decide on April 10 on the issue of granting an interim stay on the government’s decision to grant reservation to the Maratha community.

The bench was hearing a bunch of petitions challenging the law passed by the Maharashtra Legislature granting 10 percent reservation to the Maratha community.

On Tuesday, the petitioners sought a stay on the implementation of the Act, pending a final hearing decision in the petitions.

The court said before granting any interim stay it has to hear all the parties.

“It is not a simple administrative order. It is a legislation. Hence, we have to keep in mind the principles laid down while hearing pleas challenging constitutional validity of the legislation. There is a principle of presumed constitutionality. This is a legislative enactment, we will have to give due weightage to all arguments,” the bench noted.
