Patna: The Patna High Court on Thursday struck down the increase in reservations effected in Bihar last year when quotas were raised from 50 to 65 per cent for Dalits, backward classes and tribals in government jobs and educational institutions.

A Division Bench headed by Chief Justice K Vinod Chandran passed the order on

a bunch of petitions which had opposed the legislations brought by the Nitish Kumar government in November 2023.

Ritika Rani, one of the counsels appearing for the petitioners, said, "We had submitted that the amendments to the reservation laws were violative of the Constitution".
