Aug 20, 2019 | by Avantis RegTech Legal Research Team


The University Grants Commission (UGC) had issued a letter for reservation of economically weaker sections (EWSs) in higher educational institutions funded or aided, directly or indirectly by the State Government. UGC had previously issued Office Memorandum No. 12-4/2019-U1 dated January 17, 2019 regarding implementation of 10% reservation for EWSs for admission in Higher Educational Institutions.

It is requested to all State Government and UTs to give an immediate effect for all higher educational institutions funded or aided, directly or indirectly by the State Government in such a manner that the provision for reservation of EWS would be operational from the academic year 2019-2020. The scheme for implementing the reservation for the EWS shall be displayed on the website of the institution soon.
