Ashok Chavan said : “While setting the reservation aside, the apex court has opined that the states have no right to pass such law for reservation in the wake of the 102th constitutional amendment and the powers have been given to the Centre. The Socially and Educationally Backward Classes (SEBC) Act, 2018, was enacted in state legislature in November 2018 by then Fadnavis government, after the 102th Constitutional amendment in August that year.

They have to ask the National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC) and the latter has the powers to recommend to the President on reservations. However, the then BJP government has misguided the state and the community by framing such a law. It is clear from today’s judgement that the state had no powers to frame this law.
