The Madras High Court on Wednesday while falling short of granting an interim stay in the implementation of 10.5 per cent reservation to Vanniakula Kshatriyas held in an interim order that every admission made in educational institutions or appointment in public posts by implementing the 10.5 per cent internal reservation will be subject to the result of cases filed against the reservation.
A division bench comprising Justice MM Sundresh and Justice S Kannammal while posting the batch of pleas for final hearing to September 14 also made it clear that the state must inform about the interim order to every beneficiary of the internal reservation.
The court also clarified that it would be at liberty to pass appropriate orders in its final verdict with respect to the admissions and appointments made in the interregnum by implementing the internal reservation.
While the counsels appearing for the petitioners sought the court to restrain the state from implementing the internal reservation in admissions to educational institutions since it would be difficult to reverse those admissions in the future, Advocate General R Shunmugasundaram informed the court that the Tamil Nadu Dr Ambedkar Law University had already implemented the law in admissions and opposed grant of any kind of interim orders.
The court also allowed the impleading petitions filed by advocate K Balu of PMK and others who had benefitted by the law to submit their pleadings in support of it.
