Q.2 What are the criteria set by the Government of India (GoI) for the definition of Economically Weaker Section (EWS)? What changes were made in the Constitution for the EWS? (10 Marks)

  • In the intro, mention the circular which guaranteed 10 per cent reservations in civil posts and services of the GoI to the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) of the society, who were not covered under the reservation scheme for Scheduled Castes (SCs), Scheduled Tribes (STs), and Other Backward Classes (OBC).
    In the body mention the two criteria. In the next section mention the Constitution (103rd Amendment Act,2019) which authorized the State to make reservations in higher education and affairs of Public Employment for EWS.
  • Conclude by mentioning that the income cut-off has come under the scrutiny of the Supreme Court.
