Bangla Cabinet okays 10% quota for EWS in Govt jobs, education
The state Cabinet on Tuesday approved 10 percent reservation for ‘economically weaker general caste’ in state government civil service and in educational institutions across the state.
“This is a historic decision on the part of our government. The SC/ST and OBC, who are already entitled to reservation, will not get the benefit,” said state Parliamentary Affairs minister Partha Chatterjee at the state Assembly.
The state government will soon bring out a notification in this regard after tabling and passing a Bill in this regard, preferably in the ongoing Assembly session. The criteria and other formalities for getting the benefit have already been discussed and will be clearly mentioned in the notification.
