Madras HC Directs The Center To Formulate A Committee To Provide OBC Reservations In State Surrendered Seats In All India Quota For Medical Seats

The Madras High Court ruled that there are no constitutional impediments for the Central Government to frame laws to provide reservation to the Other Backward Categories, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes in the State surrendered seats in the all India quota for medical seats in Tamil Nadu. The Bench of Chief Justice AP Sahi and Justice Senthil Ramamoorthy passed the verdict on a batch of pleas filed by a number of petitioners, including various political parties in Tamil Nadu as well as the Tamil Nadu Government. Refraining from issuing a mandamus to the Government, the Court stated that a straight Mandamus for extending the benefit of reservation from this Court may not be possible unless a crystallized right takes a shape.
