Vertical and Horizontal Reservation

I am of opinion, views expressed by Rajasthan High Court, Gujarat High Court, Bombay High Court and Uttarakhand High Court, termed as ‘first view’, is correct and not views expressed by Allahabad and Madhya Pradesh, called as ‘second view’. [Hon’ble Justice S. Ravindra Bhat]

Finally, we must say, steps indicated by High Court of Gujarat in Paragraph 56 of Tamannaben Ashokbhai Desai, R/LPA No. 1910 of 2019 in R/Special Civil Application No. 18968 of 2018 contemplate correct and appropriate procedure for considering and giving effect to both vertical and horizontal reservation. [Hon’ble Justice U.U. Lalit]
