Gujarat becomes the first state to implement 10% reservation for the economically backward

All government recruitment processes which are announced but the first phase of tests are yet to be conducted will implement the quota.

Gujarat is set to become the first Indian state to implement the new 10% reservation for the Economically Weaker Sections of the general category in all educational institutions and government jobs. Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani had announced it yesterday.

CM Rupani has stated that Gujarat will implement the 10% reservation for EWS from 14th January onwards. It is to be implemented in all the ongoing recruitment processes where advertisements have been published but the first stage of examinations are yet to be held.

Following the CM’s announcement, Dinesh Dasa, the chairman of the State Public Service Commission, has announced that the preliminary exams to be held on 20th January will be postponed at the wake of the announcement and details regarding the new reservation criteria will be released by the GSPSC shortly.

The reservation will not be applicable to government recruitment processes where written/oral or computer proficiency examinations have been conducted before January 14.

The historic constitution (124th Amendment) Bill brought by the NDA government was passed in Lok Sabha on Tuesday last week and in the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday.

President Ramnath Kovind had given his consent to the Bill on Saturday. The 10% reservation for EWS of the general category is to be over and above the reservation granted to SC/ST and OBCs.
