The Union Cabinet has approved 10 % reservation in jobs and educational institutions for the economically backward section in the general category. The people who belong to this category can now avail reservations for jobs and admission in higher educational institutions.

Who are eligible for the reservations?
  • The people who earn less than Rs 8 lakh per annum
  • People who have arable land below five acres
  • People from families who have a house below 1000 sq ft
  • Those who have plot below 100 yards in a notified municipality
  • Those who have residential plot below 200 yards in a non-notified municipality area

Source: 10 per cent reservation for economically backward upper castes: Here is whom it will benefit

My Take: First step in removing caste/religion based reservations, and replacing it with Economical/Financial based reservations

There will be a constitutional amendment, lets see which opposition party supports this in Rajya Sabha. They will stall the house like they did for Triple Talaq.
