LE­GAL MINE­FIELD AWAITS QUOTA IM­PLE­MEN­TA­TION

Hindustan Times (Amritsar) - - Region -

The new reser­va­tion bill may yet have to pass through a le­gal mine­field, as the Modi gov­ern­ment has got it through the leg­is­la­ture in a day. If the bill is chal­lenged in a court, the Con­sti­tu­tional amend­ment

may not pass muster. An al­ter­na­tive could be to re­duce the quo­tas of other re­served cat­e­gories to keep the over­all reser­va­tion per­cent­age at 50%. The BJP also had this strategy in mind, while push­ing through the bill in such a man­ner. Lal Singh
