Mumbai. The Bombay High Court on Tuesday said that the Maharashtra State Backward Classes Commission (MSBCC) is a necessary party in the petitions challenging its report submitted to the state government recommending reservation for the Maratha community. A bench of Chief Justice D.K. Upadhyay, Justice G.S. Kulkarni and Justice Firdaus Pooniwala last week began hearing petitions challenging the constitutional validity of the Maharashtra State Socially and Educationally Backward Classes Reservation Act, 2024. Under this Act, 10 percent reservation was given to the Maratha community in government jobs and education.

Some petitions also challenge the establishment of the MSBCC headed by Justice Sunil Shukre (retired), its functioning and the report recommending reservation for Marathas. One of the petitioners, Bhausaheb Pawar, filed an application on Monday requesting the commission to be made a party to the petition. After hearing the application on Tuesday, the bench said that since Pawar’s petition also challenges the commission’s report and seeks to dismiss it, the MSBCC is a proper and necessary party. The High Court said that it will pass an order on Wednesday regarding making the commission a party to the petition.
