10% Quota For Economically Weak In General Category

The government on Monday announced 10 per cent reservation in government jobs and higher education for economically weaker sections in the general category and said it would move a constitutional amendment bill to bring it into effect. The move was approved in a cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The constitutional amendment bill is likely to be moved today and the government has decided to extend the Rajya Sabha session by one day.

Who are eligible?
Those who earn less than Rs. 8 lakh a year, have less than five acre land qualify for the quota. Jobs are already reserved for impoverished and disadvantaged lower castes. The criteria for economic quota will be the same as that for Other Backward Castes or OBCs.

Those who have a residential property below 1,000 sq ft will also be able to avail the benefits of this quota.

Those with residential plot below 109 yards in a notified municipality or a residential plot below 209 yards in a non-notified municipality area may also benefit from this move.
