The Supreme Court issued its ruling on the constitutionality of the central statute for the 10% reservation advantages for the economically poorer parts on Monday (EWS). The Supreme Court maintained the EWS quota law, saying that it did not violate the equality code or basic structure by taking into account economic criteria.

He continued, reading out the decision, "It doesn't also do damage to any vital feature by surpassing 50?iling for quota since the limit is itself flexible. The law was also upheld by Justice Bela M. Trivedi.

A five-judge panel, led by Chief Justice of India Uday Umesh Lalit and including justices Dinesh Maheshwari, S. Ravindra Bhat, Bela M. Trivedi, and J.B. Pardiwala, was making decisions on a number of legal matters pertaining to the legality of the 103rd Constitution Amendment, which provides for 10% reservation for the economically weaker sections of society. With the 103rd Amendment Act, Articles 15(6) and 16(6) were added to the Constitution, granting EWS—those who did not belong to the SC, ST, or OBC—and whose annual family income was less than 8 lakh—10% reservation in employment and admissions.
