Decoding the Supreme Court’s Maratha quota verdict and its implications

On Wednesday, a five-judge Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court struck down the Maharashtra law that granted reservation to the Maratha community in admissions and government jobs in the state. The verdict in the matter is significant because it also talks about whether states should be allowed to identify and give reservation to Other Backward Classes (OBCs).

In this episode, Apurva Vishwanath, who reports on law for the Indian Express, decodes the judgement, explains about the various arguments that the court looked at, and discusses the implications it has for the Centre and the states.
