The Supreme Court has upheld the constitutional validity of the 103rd Constitutional Amendment for providing 10 percent reservation for Economically Weaker Sections (EWS). The top court said that the EWS quota does not violate the basic structure of the constitution on account of the 50 per cent ceiling limit on the reservation.
The court passed the order with a 4-1 majority. Justice Ravindra Bhat dissents with the majority view on EWS.
