The Supreme Court on Thursday said the government was well within its rights to direct private educational institutes to reserve 25 per cent seats as a part of the affirmative actions for weaker sections of the society.

A Bench headed by Justice S H Kapadia stated that reserving some seats by educational institutes, which are allotted lands on subsidised rates to open schools, was an investment in future of the country.

"You cannot equate affirmative actions with reservation as both are different. What is wrong in 25 per cent having better education in private schools? Today you are making an investment for the country. Can the court intervene and say it is unreasonable?" the Bench asked.

During the submission, senior advocate Vikas Singh, counsel for association of some unaided private schools submitted that Right to Education Act directing for reserving 25 per cent mandatorily by the schools encroached upon their fundamental rights to impart education.

The Court, however, said it was willing to strike down the Legislation if the schools are able to establish that the Act put unreasonable restriction on the fundamental rights.
The Court posted the matter for further hearing for March 3.
