High Court’s order challenged
At the same time, in the petition filed in the apex court, the order of the Patna High Court was challenged, in which the division bench of the High Court had said that the petition related to the issue would be taken up after the decision of the apex court in a related subject. Against the order of the Division Bench of the High Court, advocate Vaibhav Manu Srivastava filed a petition in the apex court seeking an interim stay on the implementation of the resolution dated July 1, 2015. Through the said order of the Bench, Extremely Backward Classes (EBC) ‘Tanti/Tatwa’ was declared as a synonym of ‘Paan/Swasi’ which comes under Scheduled Caste.
