Mumbai, Jul 7: The Bombay High Court on Monday, Jul 6 set aside the state's order that reserved 90 pc of seats for local SSC students and rest 10 pc seats for ICSE and CBSE.

The Central Board students who had gone to court against the government resolution were relieved but the SSC students were disappointed.

The court said it had seen through the government's political agenda and observed, "The GR has been issued only for political ambitions and to favour students belonging to the SSC board."

A division bench of Chief Justice Swatanter Kumar and Justice S C Dharmadhikari read out the operative part of the order in a courtroom packed with students, parents, government officials and representatives of various boards. The court said admission can start and those who are yet to submit forms should do so by 5 pm on Tuesday, Jul 7.
