Telangana Announces 10% Reservations For EWS

The Telangana government today announced that it would be implementing a 10% reservation for the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) in the state.
Hyderabad | 21st January 2021
Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today announced that the state government had decided to implement 10% reservation for the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) in the state, in government educational institutions and in government jobs.

"We are committed to the uplift of the weak and the marginalised sections of Telangana, and as we have realised that there is a need to support the EWS in the state, we have decided to implement a 10% reservation in jobs and education to the economically weaker classes in the state. This will be implemented alongside the existing reservations. As of today, the TRS government has implemented a 50% reservation system for the weaker sections. With the implementation of the added 10% EWS quota, the total percentage of reservations being implemented in the state will go up to 60%," he said.

The CM said that a high-level review meeting would be held within the next two to three days on the matter and that the relevant orders to execute the decision would be issued then.

While the TRS government already has a 50% quota for the SCs, STs, BCs and OBC Muslims in the state, the decision to implement a quota for the EWS will be welcomed by the economically disadvantaged in the state.

A similar reservation was brought in by the Centre about two years ago.
