Kerala HC scraps 10 per cent community quota for Plus 1 admission 

Kerala High Court

Kochi: The Kerala High Court observed that the 10 per cent community quota for higher secondary admissions granted for schools functioning under the managements run by the communities, except backward minority managements, are unconstitutional.

Meanwhile, the court ratified the 20 per cent management quota fixed in private aided higher secondary schools in the state. Justice Raja Vijayaraghavan scrapped the 10 per cent community quota of those schools which also conduct admission through the 20 per cent management quota. The court ordered to regulate admission through the centralised allotment procedures and backward minority communities.

Over 75 school managements had approached the High Court demanding verification of the admission procedures in the community-run schools which grant a 10 per cent quota to students of the respective communities on merit-basis, in addition to the 20 per cent management quota. The petitioners included the managements functioning under individuals, societies, trusts and agencies.
