Update on the Court Hearings

Now the Government is on its toe! The Honorable High Court of Delhi issued notice to the Centre asking to answer questions taken by the petitioner. The Court has given four weeks time to the centre to file its answer. After that the court will decide on the fate of the order. In between we are going to file another set of petition at the Delhi High Court covering other issues. Senior Advocate Harish Salve appeared for our petition and tasked the government to answer the questions posed by the petitioner.In Mumbai the scene was quite different. The defence lawyer was caught unaware and admitted to deferred the result of Tata Institute of Social Science for fifteen days to facilitate the Court to give its verdict. The TISS lawyers have asked for a copy of the judgment to read and come with an answer. Day after again the hearing will be resumed at the Mumbai High Court. The High Court also ordered the petitioner (Youth For Equality/Doctors For You) to sent one copy of the petition to the HRD Ministry with immediate effect. Ad. Anil Joshi appearing for YFE prevailed at the High Court. Our Mumbai YFEians have already dispatched a copy of the petition without losing time. Tomorrow the Calcutta High Court will take the case. Our friends there working overtime to appear at the Court. Also tomorrow another important presentation to be made infront of the National Backward Classes Commission. Amit Srivastav and Vikram Singh will be appearing before the public hearing in front of Justice Ratnavale at the NCBC to oppose the inclusion of Jat in Delhi in Central List as backward caste. The hearing will be resume at 11AM. Vikram and Amit are representatives of Delhi based ATI-PICHHADA VARG SANGHARSH SAMITI. They will present the view on the said samiti's behalf.
YFE is also going to make a presentation along with Citizen For Equality.
