SC order on AIIMS quota: Govt to file review plea
New Delhi: The Centre Wednesday moved the Supreme Court seeking a review of its verdict by which it had held that there can be no reservation in appointment for faculty posts in speciality and super speciality courses in medical colleges including prestigious All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).
The review petition filed said the July 18 verdict goes against the mandate of Mandal judgement and the apex court also ignored the detailed submissions made by it.
It said though the arguments were advanced by its lawyer for two days, the verdict merely stated that the Centre has adopted the arguments of AIIMS.
Ruling against reservation in speciality and super speciality courses, a five-judge constitutional bench headed by Chief Justice Altamas Kabir (since retired) had said it cannot take a contrary view expressed in 1992 by a nine-judge bench in the Indra Sawhney case, also known as the Mandal case, that there could be no compromise with merit at the super speciality stage.
