Quota for poor: SC notice to state on transfer plea

Chandigarh:

The Supreme Court has issued notice to the Haryana government on a plea seeking directions for transfer of all cases related to reservation to economic backward persons from general category (EBPG) in the state, from the Punjab and Haryana high court to the apex court.


SC has also asked the Haryana government to inform as to why the proceedings before the high court in the matter should not be stayed.

A division bench comprising Justice Indu Malhotra and Justice Ajay Rastogi passed these orders while hearing a transport petition filed by Sunil Rathi and others.

Counsel appearing for the petitioners, Ram Naresh Yadav, submitted that a similar matter is pending before the SC in the case titled, ‘State of Gujarat and others versus Dulari Mahesh Basarge and others’. “The present case of the petitioners has same questions of law. The questions are of general importance and several similar cases are pending before the Punjab and Haryana high court at Chandigarh,” Yadav had argued seeking transfer of all petitions to SC.

It was also submitted that the matter pending before HC were being delayed only because of the pendency of similar matter (Gujarat and others versus Dulari Mahesh Basarge and others) before the SC.

In that case, the Gujarat high court on August 4, 2016, quashed the Gujarat government’s ordinance providing for reservation in favour of economically weaker sections of unreserved categories. The same matter has now reached before the SC.

The Haryana matter would now come up for hearing on January 6. In this case, petitioner Rathi, a resident of village Lakhan Majra in Rohtak district, and others had applied for the post of shift attendant in power department. The posts were advertised by the Haryana Staff Selection Commission (HSSC) in February 2016 to fill 2,426 positions.

According to the petitioners, out of 2,426 posts of shift attendant, 10% posts were reserved under EBPG category, thus violating the law laid down by the SC holding that reservation beyond 50% is not permissible in law.

It has also been argued that by providing 10% reservation under EBP, the total reservation has increased up to 60% and the same is against 50% ceiling stipulated by the apex court in the case of Indira Sawhney versus the Union of India.

The petitioners have sought directions to set aside the notification of September 27, 2013, vide which the Haryana government had provided 10% vertical reservation for EBPG category in state jobs.

It has also been asked to convert the EBPG seats back to general category
