SUB-CATEGORISATION IN SC/ST AND OBC QUOTA OKAYED BY HON’BLE SUPREME COURT

Dtf.in : 28.08.2020
Sub-Categorisation in the SC/ST and OBC quota has been okayed by Hon’ble Supreme Court vide its judgment dated 27.08.2020 in the case of The State of Punjab & Ors. Vs. Davinder Singh & Ors. However, a final decision in this regard will be taken by the 7-Judges bench, to be constituted by the Chief Justice of India. It has been held by Hon’ble Supreme Court as under:-
PARAS 50-52
“50. The “inadequate representation” is the fulcrum of the provisions of Article 16(4). In our opinion, it would be open to the State to provide on a rational basis the preferential treatment by fixing reasonable quota out of reserved seats to ensure adequate representation in services. Reservation is a very effective tool for emancipation of the oppressed class. The benefit by and large is not percolating down to the neediest and poorest of the poor.
51. The interpretation of Articles 14, 15, 16, 338, 341, 342, and 342A is a matter of immense public importance, and correct interpretation of binding precedents in Indra Sawhney and other decisions. Though we have full respect for the principle of stare decisis, at the same time, the Court cannot be a silent spectator and shut eyes to stark realities. The constitutional goal of social transformation cannot be achieved without taking into account changing social realities.
52. We endorse the opinion of a Bench of 3 Judges that E.V. Chinnaiah is required to be revisited by a larger Bench; more so, in view of further development and the amendment of the Constitution, which have taken place. We cannot revisit E.V. Chinnaiah being Bench of coordinate strength. We request the Hon’ble Chief Justice to place the matters before a Bench comprising of 7 Judges or more as considered appropriate.”
