EWS

Economically Weaker Section (EWS) is a subcategory of people belonging to the General Category having an annual family income less than Rs.8 lakhs and who absolutely do not belong to any category such as SC/ST/OBC/MBC(Tamil Nadu).

The Union Government of India tabled the Constitution (One Hundred And Twenty-Fourth Amendment) Bill, 2019 which provided a 10% additional quota for the EWS students amongst the erstwhile Unreserved category or General category students.

The eligibility to get the EWS certificate is not only purely based on annual family income but also based on the held property. The income limit has been set by the central government for admission to central government-owned colleges and jobs offered by the central government. State governments are given the authority to change the eligibility criteria and also to extend the income limit further for candidates seeking reservation under the EWS category which will be valid only in state-owned colleges and state government’s jobs as deemed fit for the respective states.
