Supreme Court has upheld the validity of the 103rd Constitutional Amendment which provides 10% reservation for the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) among forward castes in government jobs and colleges across India. 10% EWS quota was introduced under the 103rd Constitution (Amendment) Act, 2019 by amending Articles 15 and 16. It inserted Article 15 (6) and Article 16 (6). It is for economic reservation in jobs and admissions in educational institutes for Economically Weaker Sections (EWS). It was enacted to promote the welfare of the poor not covered by the 50% reservation policy for Scheduled Castes (SCs), Scheduled Tribes (STs), Socially and Educationally Backward Classes (SEBC). 10% of EWS quotas are failure of state. We have political equality but not social and economical equality. The efforts should be focusing on reducing social and economical inequality, but the implementation of recent judgment is doing something else. Dr. Babasaheb asked to use education as a tool to destroy the caste system.But he said educating the people who perpetuate the caste system will put the Indian democracy in grave danger. Same is happening in the case of EWS this judgment will create more problems and so, we can say it is intellectually corrupt decision.
