Kerela Public Services Commission to implement 10% quota on EWS

The Kerela Public Services Commission has decided to implement 10% reservation for EWS catogory for general class on all government jobs starting October 23.
Necessary amendments will be made in the online application and profile for the quota to be made applicable for eligible aspirants for job notifications, for which the last date for application had not ended on October 23.

The last date for applications to be submitted on November 4 has now been extended till midnight on November 14 for eligible aspirants to make applications. The date extension is not applicable to departmental posts in which the EWS quota is not applicable.
The Centre had earlier decided to provide the 10% reservation based on the 103rd Amendment of the Constitution, without affecting 50% reservation being provided to the SC/ST and Other Backward communities.

The Cabinet proposal had led to stormy debates with political as well as religious organisations up in arms against it.
