India’s Supreme Court to focus on three key questions in examining jobs quota for less well-off

India’s Supreme Court is expected to wrap up hearings on whether an act, which grants the less well-off a 10% quota in government jobs, violates the Constitution. The EWS, or Economically Weaker Section, quota applies to those earning less than $10,000 a year. A five-judge bench is presiding over the case. Three key areas will be assessed: 1) Whether reservation based on economic criteria should be allowed, 2) whether the amendment act breaches the Constitution, and 3) whether the amendment excludes other socially disadvantaged classes.
