New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld 85 per cent reservation for local area candidates in admission to super specialities in PG medical courses in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana in view of the Presidential Order providing for such quota.

A bench of Justices Dipak Misra and Prafulla C. Pant rejected the plea of Dr S. Sandeep and others, challenging the quota for local candidates in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

 

While upholding quota for Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, the bench said insofar as Tamil Nadu was concerned, the matter will be heard on November 4 for further hearing as such a quota is impermissible.

The bench quoted a five-judge Constitution Bench verdict and said it makes it graphically clear that the 85 per cent quota was in respect of local areas and non-locals area is directly referable to varsity area.
