A bench headed by Chief Justice N V Ramana took note of the submissions of Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the state government, and agreed to list the appeal of the state government on placing the order of the high court on its record.

In its plea, the state government argues that the high court passed its decision after a hearing of just one and a half minute. It also says that the lawyer representing the state was not heard in the High Court.

The High Court on Thursday granted an interim stay on a Haryana government law providing 75 per cent reservation in private sector jobs for residents of the state.

Calling the decision unsustainable and against natural justice, the Haryana government asked the Supreme Court to set aside the stay.
