HC rejects 10% EWS quota in medical-dental seats
The Madras High Court on Wednesday quashed the 10 per cent reservation for Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) for admission to medical and dental seats in the All India Quota (AIQ) seats surrendered by the Tamil Nadu government.This violates the 50 per cent limit set by the Supreme Court.Chief Justice Sanjeev Banerjee and Justice P.D.Audikesvalu said- EWS quota is admissible till approved by the Supreme Court of India.
However, the court said that 27 per cent reservation for OBCs notified by the central government in AIQ seats by the Tamil Nadu government for admission to medical and dental courses is possible and there is no need to provide 50 per cent reservation in the state.
