The Supreme Court has given an important decision on the EWS quota given to the people from the economically weaker sections. The court has declared this 10 percent reservation valid. Justice Dinesh Maheshwari upheld the EWS reservation.He said that this quota does not violate the basic principles and spirit of the Constitution. Apart from Maheshwari, Justice Bela M. Trivedi gave his opinion in favour of the EWS quota. Apart from him, Justice JP Pardiwala also justified the 10 percent reservation given to the poor.

Justice Bela M. Trivedi said that my decision agrees with the opinion of Justice Maheshwari. He said that the EWS quota is valid and constitutional. However, Chief Justice UU Lalit and Justice S.Ravindra termed the EWS quota as illegal and discriminatory. In this way, the Supreme Court has 3-1 stamped on the 10 percent EWS reservation to the poor section of the general category. A 5-judge Constitutional Bench comprising Justice UU Lalit and Justice S.Ravindra Bhat was the only one who called this quota wrong. He said that this law is full of discrimination and against the basic spirit of the Constitution. Through the 103rd amendment to the Constitution, a law regarding EWS reservation was passed by the Parliament in 2019. This decision was challenged in the Supreme Court through several petitions, on which the court has given its verdict today after a long hearing.
