Bihar govt. to challenge HC order scrapping job quota hike

Patna, June 20 (UNI) Bihar Government will appeal to the Supreme Court against the Patna High Court judgement scrapping the hike in reservation from 50 per cent to 65 per cent for SCs, STs, OBCs and EBCs in government services in the state.
Deputy Chief Minister Samrat Chaudhary said the state government will challenge the judgement of the Patna High Court before the apex judiciary. Nitish Kumar's government had taken a "good decision" to conduct socio-economic caste survey and based on its findings, the quota for the deprived and backwards was increased, he pointed out.
Chaudhary defended the Nitish Kumar's government's decision to increase the quota, saying the government was committed to ensuring justice to the underprivileged. All efforts would be made to ensure justice to those who lagged behind on the path of development, he assured.
