“We may hasten to clarify; the states shall not treat them (vacant seats) as seats which have been reverted to the state quota from All India Quota but fill them by taking the merits in All India Quota. Needless to say the whole thing shall be completed by October 7, 2016,” reads the SC order. The court order came after a write petition filed on the issue.
