Maharashtra government to grant 10% quota in jobs, education to EWS

The Maharashtra government will grant 10% reservation in jobs and education to Economically Weaker Section (EWS) in the state. 

Devendra Fadnavis, Chief Minister of Maharashtra, tweeted, "Families, whose collective annual income is less than Rs 8 lakh -- through sources such as farming, salaries, business-industry -- would be treated as economically backward in this case."

The decision of state government is in line with the Centre's recent move of granting 10% quota to the financially weak from general category.

Sudhir Mungantiwar, Finance Minister of Maharashtra, said, "The (Maharashtra) Cabinet has decided to give 10 per cent quota to those who are financially weak, from any caste or religion, in education and jobs." 

10% seats/posts would be made available for the economically poor in admissions in educational institutes and recruitment for government services. The benefit would be effective for job recruitments or admissions from February 1, 2019, onwards.
