Bombay HC stays Maharashtra govt's decision to give 16% reservation to Marathas

The Bombay high court on Friday stayed Maharashtra government's decision to give 16 per cent reservation to Marathas in public service and educational institutions.

The HC also stayed state's decision to provide 5 per cent reservation to Muslims in public service, but allowed them reservation in education.

The HC bench headed by chief justice Mohit Shah was hearing a bunch of public interest litigations (PIL) filed against the reservation on the ground that they were not constitutional.
