Let 7-judge SC bench decide SC/ST creamy layer issue: AG

Having failed to convince two five-judge benches to rule against exclusion of creamy layer from reservation for Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes in government job promotions, the Centre on Monday made a fresh attempt by requesting the Supreme Court to refer the "emotive issue" to a seven-judge bench. In a previous case, ​​the SC had said that exclusion of creamy layer did not harm social welfare.
