Cabinet tabling report on Maratha quota
The Maharashtra government told Bombay High Court on Wednesday that it was in the process of tabling the State Backward Class Commission's recommendations on the Maratha quota issue before the state legislature.
State's counsel, additional government pleader Abhinandan Vagyani, informed the court that the state Cabinet had received the recommendations from the commission and was mulling further action.
'The state Cabinet is in the process of placing the report (the commission's recommendations) before the House and taking other appropriate steps,' Vagyani said.
Following the state's submission, a bench of Justices B.P. Dharamadhikari and Sarang Kotwal disposed of all pending litigations in the high court on the issue of reservation for the Maratha community.
The bench was hearing a bunch of petitions filed between 2014 and 2015 after the then Congress-NCP government granted 16 per cent quota in government jobs and education to the Maratha community.
While some of the petitions opposed the government's decision, two petitions had sought immediate implementation of the quota.
