Cabinet approves reservations in admission for EWS


The Union cabinet on Monday approved provision of reservations in admission for economically weaker section students (EWS) in Central Educational Institution (CEIs).

The decision will lead to the creation of 2.15 lakh additional seats in Central Educational Institutions in the next two years, sources said.

Out of these, 1,18,983 seats will be created in 2019-20 and another 95,783 in 2020-21.

The 10 per cent reservations to EWS, a path breaking move of the Narendra Modi government, has led to the sanction of Rs 4,315.15 crore to be approved for the 158 Central Educational Institutions (CEIs) for its implementation.

The cabinet approval came days after the first round of polling in the Lok Sabha elections.

Sources said the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) had issued instructions in January to all the CEIs to provide 10 per cent reservation to EWS without adversely affecting the proportionate reservations for Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes and Socially and Economically Backward Classes and also not reducing seat availability in the General category.

The 10 per cent reservation for EWS, approved in January when the 103rd Constitutional Amendment Bill was posted in Parliament is already facing judicial scrutiny.
