The Supreme court on Monday directed the Centre to produce documents supporting the subquota of 4.5 per cent for minorities in central government jobs and educational institutions.
The apex court asked Attorney General G.E.Vahanvati to submit the documents on Tuesday and posted the case for hearing on Wednesday. But no notice was issued to the Centre by the apex court.
The Court refused to stay the Andhra Pradesh High Court order quashing the 4.5 percent subquota. A bench comprising Justice K.S. Radhakrishnan and Justice J.S.Khehar wanted the government to clarify on what basis the subquota for minorities was arrived at.
The Centre had moved the apex court challenging the Andhra Pradesh High Court order quashing the 4.5 per cent reservation for minorities within the 27 percent OBC quota.
