The Hindu - - NEWS - Spe­cial Cor­re­spon­dent

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.
