The Supreme Court on Friday decided to examine the Centre's decision to grant 10 per cent reservation in jobs and education to poor candidates belonging to general category. A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Sanjiv Khanna issued the notice to the Central government on various petitions challenging the validity of the 103 Constitutional Amendment Act which paved the way for grant of quota to poor belonging to general category class. “We are examining the matter and hence issuing notice returnable within four weeks,” the bench said.
