New Delhi: The Supreme Court refused to stay the Maratha quota and sought a response from the Maharashtra government on a plea challenging the reservation to the community in jobs and education.

The Martha quota was introduced in November 2018. The Bombay High Court upheld it and ordered its implementation. Maharashtra standing counsel Nishant Katneshwarkar told IANS: "It is a big relief for the government as the apex court did not stay the Maratha quota.

And the quota will be applicable from November 2018." The court refused to give any retrospective effect of the quota before November.

The quota will be applicable in connection with reservation in jobs and educational institutions. A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi also issued notice returnable in two weeks wherein the parties will file more documents.

This observation came as the court agreed to hear an appeal for quashing the reservation for Marathas for admission in educational institutions and government jobs and then issued notice to the Maharashtra government.
