Today we will discuss about implementation of “EWS quota in AIIMS”.Although central govt. asked AIIMS admission authority to implement EWS quota in AIIMS from 2019-20 but it could not be.Reason was infrastructure and adequate facilities.But good thing is that, it is implemented from session 2020-21.
Best part is that after implementation of this EWS quota ,around 25% seats will be added.Currently there are about 1200 seats ,so final figure will be around 1500.
Economically Weaker Section-EWS
EWS in India is a subcategory of people belonging to the General Category .This is only for those having an annual family income less than ₹8 lakhs .Other condition is that they do not belong to any reserved category such as SC/ST/OBC .
So,EWS is a candidate who doesn’t belongs to castes recognized as SC/ST/OBC by the Govt. of India & doesn’t avail any form of reservations (except horizontal reservations like ExS, PwD, etc).And if his/her annual family income is above the prescribed limit of ₹8 lakhs by Government of India .In some state it’s limit is prescribed 6 Lakhs per annum).
If any candidate fulfills these conditions, then he/she will be recognized as a candidate from General category and not from EWS category.The Union Government of India tabled the Constitution (One Hundred And Twenty-Fourth Amendment) Bill, 2019 .
On the basis of this bill 10% additional quota for the EWS students amongst the erstwhile Unreserved category or General category students.The terms Economically Weaker Section (EWS) and Economically Backward Class (EBC) are different.
The definition of EWS has been defined by the Government of India whereas the definition of EBC and Most Economically Backward Class (MEBC) vary in different states as well as institutions.The Government of India earlier did not provide any reservations to EWS candidates.There is a significant percentage of the Indian population who belong to the EWS category.
Eligibility for EWS quota in AIIMS
The eligibility to get the EWS certificate is not only purely based on annual family income but also based on the 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 EWS category which will be valid only in state-owned colleges and state government’s jobs as deemed fit for the respective states.
People belonging to Economically Weaker Section since 1 February 2019 now get 10% reservation in education (supernumerary seats created for EWS category) and government jobs of India (horizontal reservations) similarly like OBC, SC, ST.
