3. After passing of the Constitution (One Hundred and Third Amendment) Act, 2019, the Government of Andhra Pradesh have bifurcated the 10% reservation and brought out two Acts, namely, Act No.14 of 2019, Dated.20.02.2019 and Act No.15 of 2019, Dated.20.02.2019, providing for 5% reservation to Economically Weaker Sections among Kapus and 5% reservation to Economically Weaker Sections among other than Kapus respectively, towards admissions into Educational Institutions and appointments to posts in the Public Services under the State. There shall be 1/3rd horizontal reservation for women within in the reservation provided both to Kapus and other than Kapus. 

4. In the reference 4th read above, the Government have issued orders bringing the provisions of the Act 14 of 2019 and Act 15 of 2019 into force with effect from 08.03.2019. 

5. In the reference 5th read above, Government have constituted a Committee for formulation of draft guidelines for implementation of 5% reservation provided to Economically Weaker Sections among Kapus and 5% reservation provided to Economically Weaker Sections other than Kapus. 

6. Meanwhile, a Writ Petition bearing No. WP (CIVIL) No. 343 OF 2019 with I.A.NO. 45038/2019 has been filed before the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India praying for quashing the Constitution (One Hundred and Third Amendment) Act, 2019 as violative of basic structure of the Constitution and also quashing Act 14 & Act 15 of 2019 enacted by Government of Andhra Pradesh as being violative of Articles 15 (1) & 16 (2) of the Constitution. 

7. In the reference 7th & 8th read above, two Writ Petitions have been filed before the Hon’ble High Court of Andhra Pradesh praying for issuing an appropriate Writ or Order or direction more particularly one in the nature of Writ of Mandamus to the respondents to notify the Rules for implementing the 10% reservation provided to Economically Weaker Sections among Kapus and other than Kapus in Act No.14 of 2019 and Act No.15 of 2019 enacted by the State of Andhra Pradesh. 

8. In the reference 9th read above, one more Writ Petition has been filed before the Hon’ble High Court of Andhra Pradesh praying for issuing an appropriate Writ or Order or direction more particularly one in the nature of Writ of Mandamus declaring Act No.14 of 2019 and Act No.15 of 2019 as ultra vires and un-constitutional, violative of the purport of the 103rd Constitutional Amendment Act, 2019 and violative of Article 15 of the Constitution of India and consequently, Act No.14 of 2019 and Act No.15 of 2019, have to be struck down. The Hon’ble High Court of Andhra Pradesh passed the following interim orders in this case;
  • “Notice before admission. Petitioners filed the Writ Petition seeking Mandamus declaring Act 14 and Act 15 of 2019, as ultra vires, unconstitutional, violative of the purport of the 103rd Constitutional Amendment, violative of Article 15 of the Constitution of India and consequently to strike down Act 14 and Act 15 of 2019.
  • Petitioners also sought interim relief, to direct the Respondents 6 and 7 to follow 103rd Constitutional Amendment Act during admissions into Medical and Engineering Courses and allot seats in the supernumerary seats created by the 4th Respondent, only in accordance with the policy of the 4th Respondent, with regard to Economically Weaker Sections, pending disposal of the writ petition.
  • It is the case of the petitioners that Act 14 and Act 15 of 2019, creating reservation in Educational Institutions to Kapu community based on their economic backwardness, is contrary to the 103rd Amendment.
  • In fact, it is brought to the notice of the Court that a petition challenging 103rd Constitutional Amendment is pending before the Honourable Supreme Court, but the main contention is that Act 14 and Act 15 are inconsistent with the purport of 103rd Constitutional Amendment. At this stage, it is not possible to decide the core issue i.e. the vires of Act 14 and 15 of 2019, making another class within the original class, without inviting counter-affidavit from the respondents.
  • Therefore, there shall be a direction to the respondents to complete the admission process, pending further orders, subject to the result of the Writ Petition, by obtaining an undertaking from the petitioners to the effect that in case the petitioners do not succeed in the writ petition, they shall not claim any equities in future based on the admissions.
  • Post after three weeks, by which time respondents shall file their counter-affidavits”.
