EWS quota different from SC, ST, OBC reservation, says AG in Supreme Court

The 10% EWS quota was introduced in January 2019 through the 103rd amendment of the Constitution. Challenges to the amendment are being heard by a five-judge constitution bench which is looking at whether economic criteria can be the basis for reservation, and whether such reservation can exclude the backward sections of population, as there are poor among them, too.

50% ceiling of reservation is not sacrosanct: Centre to Supreme Court

The Preamble of the Constitution provides for the upliftment of EWS, which, AG KK Venugopal emphasised, could be through reservations in educational institutions, posts in public employment, and a series of welfare measures that the State is bound to hold out for its weaker sections of society.

In August 2020, the court referred to a five-judge Constitution bench a batch of petitions challenging the 103rd Constitution Amendment of 2019 that provides 10% reservation for EWS in government jobs and educational institutions. (AP)
