Gujarat to implement 10% quota
Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani announced on Sunday that the State would implement the 10% quota in government jobs and higher education for the economically backward sections in the general category from January 14. This makes Gujarat the first State to implement the quota.
“The economically weaker sections from the general category communities will get 10% reservation in admissions to higher education and government jobs, starting Uttarayan on January 14,” Mr. Rupani said.
In a press release, the State government said the new quota would be implemented in admissions and jobs which were advertised before January 14 but for which the actual process for recruitment or admissions had not started before January 14.
