A Reality Check By Twitteratis After The Govt Decide To Provide 10% Quota To Economically Weak General Category

The government of India should bring a constitutional amendment that will allow the 10 per cent reservation to the general category in government jobs and education for economically. The amendment will come into action before the next Parliamentary elections.

A constitutional revision bill is probably going to take place tomorrow.

As per the media reports, the cabinet has passed a quota in direct recruitment and for admission in higher educational institutions. The decision is pending for the view that the reservation should be based on economic lines and not just based on caste.

Interestingly, when BJP lost to Congress in the recent elections in three major heartland states, they came up with this big move.

However, as per guidelines of Apex court, the reservation should not be more than 50 % so they are planning an amendment in the constitution.

All of this process is going to be done for the general population who do not have reservations as a large part of upper caste and middle-class voters were seen to be upset with the ruling BJP over quotas that are only for Scheduled Caste and Tribes and Other Backward Castes (SC/STs and OBCs).

Meanwhile, there are three objectives which made the bill difficult to pass and they are below:

1. Political discrepancy.
2. Supreme court guidelines for Reservation.
3. Fewer numbers for Govt in Upper House of the Parliament.
