“Adequate additional seats will be created in these colleges and universities to implement the quota for EWS. The UGC and AICTE will be provided the operational mandate within a week to implement the quota,” Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said.

The quota for the economically weak, which allows them 10% reservation benefit, will be implemented in all educational institutions from 2019. “10% EWS quota will be implemented in the AY 2019-20 itself, without impacting the existing quotas for SCs,STs & OBCs and general seats,” said Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar today in a meeting with the UGC and the AICTE. “Adequate additional seats will be created in these colleges and universities to implement the quota for EWS. The UGC and AICTE will be provided the operational mandate within a week to implement the quota,” he added.

“The modalities are being worked out and within a week’s time we will have the exact number of seats that will be added. The operation manuals about how to implement the quota will be issued soon. The colleges and universities will also be asked to mention the quota in their prospectus as well and make infrastructural arrangements accordingly,” Mr Javadekar said.

The decision comes after President Ram Nath Kovind on Saturday cleared the landmark bill passed by parliament which will provide 10 per cent reservation in government jobs and college seats for people outside high income brackets.

Upon its implementation, in 40,000 colleges and 900 Universities, 10 per cent of college seats will now be reserved for students belonging to families that earn less than Rs. 8 lakh a year and have not more than five acres of land. The 10 per cent quota is in addition to the 22.5 per cent reservation for Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes and 27 per cent reservation for castes identified as the Other Backward Classes (OBC).

Saying it to be “unwanted”, former Chief Economic Adviser to the Union Finance Ministry, Kaushik Basu on Monday said,” by most calculations, somewhere between 96-99 per cent of Indian households fall into that category.”

Having a skill means a youth is standing on his feet with a professional approach,” said the education minister of Delhi.

He said skill is the future of education and it is important to impart skill education. He also said that entrepreneurship be also included as a skill so that the skill centres can give rise to job givers rather than job seekers.

  • IIT, Dwarka
  • Delhi Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research University

The admission process for the March 2019 batch in the six WCSCs will start soon, with the advertisement likely to be published next week.

Announcement for these skill centres made back in 2017

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had in 2017 announced setting up of 25 WCSC in Delhi, after the success of the first WCSC at ITI, Vivek Vihar, started in 2013.

25 world class skill centres coming up in two phases

The government plans to start the proposed 25 WCSC in two phases — six WCSC in Phase I and remaining 19 WCSC in Phase II.

“Under Phase I, six WCSCs are being set up with all facilities and will be launched with intake capacity of 720 in March 2019, and 720 as the second intake in the month of August 2019,” he said.
