    Apex Court’s big ruling: Resevation be abolished in higher educational institutions

    New Delhi/ Nagpur: The Supreme Court on Tuesday made a big ruling on reservation policy, saying that the reservation be abolished in higher educational institutions in the country, said the media reports.

    The court ruled so while disposing of a petition filed challenging the eligibility criterion for seeking admissions to superspeciality courses in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Tamil Nadu medical colleges.

    The Apex Court observed, 68 years have passed since Independence of India, but there is no change in the policy framed for facilitating the deprived ones of society. The court directed the Central Government to take necessary steps in this regard, as it is the need of the hour in national interest.

    The divisional bench comprising Justice Deepak Mishra and Justice P C Pant remarked that the special privileges so granted have failed to bring any change in the conditions.

    The bench, hearing two petitions on reservation, observed that there was no need of reservation for superspeciality courses in medical education institutions; rather the time has come to reform the quality of higher education and provide better health services to the countrymen.

    Referring to 27-year old remarks made by Supreme Court, the bench said on Tuesday, this message is meant for the Centre and the state governments on reservation policy to revise it.

    The court further said, “We are repeating the sentiments and wishes of other people so that the officials might evaluate the circumstances impartially, without any bias, and accord priority to national interest.”
