Gujarat govt to implement 10% reservation for economically weaker class
By Theweek 30-May-2019
A decision to this effect was taken at a cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Vijay Rupani in Gandhinagar on Tuesday. Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel said that the scheme will be implemented in all higher education admissions from the new academic year 2019-20.
Patel said that a total of 6,809 seats will be added to the existing 31,890 seats in medical, para medical and allied courses. A new medical college will come up in Amreli, Saurashtra. He said that in architecture, pharmacy and engineering, a total of 40,000 seats would be added.
“Gujarat becomes the first state in the country to implement this,” Patel said, adding that any student whose annual family income is less than Rs 8 lakh and is not taking benefit under any other scheme will get the benefit of the scheme. During the admission process, these seats will be kept aside and reservation of any other category will not be affected, he held.
