C’garh eyes population-ratio plan, total quota may breach 80%

The special session has been called to resolve the impasse arising out of the recent high court decision that set aside a 2012 government order taking overall quota to 58%, ruling that reservation above 50% is unconstitutional. If the government goes through with its proportional-quota plan, it could take reservation in Chhattisgarh to 81% — possibly the highest in the country.
