The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused the Centre's plea seeking vacation of its interim order staying the implementation of 27 per cent quota for Other Backward Classes in elite educational institutions.

"We are not going to pass any interim order," a five-judge Constitution Bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan said.

The bench said it will hear the main petition to examine the Constitutional validity of the Centre Educational Institutions (Reservation in Admission) Act 2006.
