The Supreme Court on Monday approved the reservation given to the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS). A five-judge bench headed by Chief Justice UU Lalit ruled in favor of the 103rd amendment to the Constitution in 3:2. However, Chief Justice UU Lalit and Justice Ravindra Bhat expressed their opinion against the EWS quota. The remaining three judges said that this amendment is not against the basic spirit of the Constitution. It is noteworthy that in the EWS quota, the general category has got 10 percent reservation on economic basis. This decision was challenged. The top court had refused to stay the reservation. With this decision, now 10 percent reservation will continue for the economically backward upper castes in the country.

Who will get the benefit of EWS reservation
The EWS quota provides reservation to the general category of economically weaker sections of the population, unlike reservation based on caste and class. Whether a person belonging to a general category comes under EWS depends on the annual income of his family. For a person coming under EWS quota, his or his family income should be less than Rs 8 lakh. The source of income also includes agriculture, business and other occupations.
