Supreme Court ponders over revoking reservation in higher education

Supreme Court ponders over revoking reservation in higher education

The Supreme Court has advised the state and central government to remove caste-based reservations in higher education and select students based solely on merit.

States like Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Tamil Nadu had moved the Supreme Court on requesting permission to impose reservations in higher studies. The petition was looked into by the Supreme Court bench consisting of Justices Deepak Mishra and PC Pant.


Post Independence, no changes have been made in the reservation policies for higher education. Keeping the welfare of the nation in mind and for improving the quality of higher education, the caste-based reservation system must be removed and deserving students must be chosen based solely on merit.

The bench said that it hopes that the centre and the state governments will make apt decisions in this regard without any further delay and obstacles. Since Andhra Pradesh and Telangana are currently under the President’s rule, contrary legislations cannot be implemented in those states.

The issue of caste-based reservations for higher studies in the state of Tamil Nadu has been adjourned to November 4.
