The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court today upheld the High Court verdict that restored 30 percent quota system for the freedom fighters’ children in ninth to 13th grades of government jobs till further order. The Supreme Court has asked the Government to file leave to appeal before this court after the full HC judgment is announced.

 

A six-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Obaidul Hassan passed the order while hearing a government petition seeking a stay of the HC judgment.
Following a writ petition, on June 5, the HC declared illegal the government’s decision in 2018 to scrap the 30 percent quota system for children of freedom fighters.
