Reservation not fundamental right: SC on pleas for OBC quota in Tamil Nadu medical colleges

The Supreme Court on Thursday (June 11, 2020) while hearing a clutch of petitions asking for quota for OBC candidates in Tamil Nadu’s medical colleges observed that right to reservation is not a fundamental right. 

A three-judge bench headed by Justice L Nageswara Rao and comprising of Krishna Murari and S Ravindra Bhat categorically stated that nobody can claim their right to reservation as a fundamental right, and hence not giving quota benefits cannot be construed as a violation of so.

“Right to reservation is not a fundamental right. That’s the law today,” remarked Justice Rao while hearing the petitions.
