103rd Constitutional Amendment Act - 10% Quota for General Category

103rd Constitutional Amendment Act: President Ram Nath Kovind on 12th January 2019 gave his assent to the Constitution amendment that provides 10% reservation to the economically backward section in the general category in government jobs and education.

  • With the Ministry for Law and Justice issuing a notification about the Constitution (103 Amendment) Act, 2019 receiving the Presidential assent, reservation for the economically weaker among general category is now law.
  • The Act amends Articles 15 and 16 of the Constitution — ensuring Fundamental Rights to a citizen — by adding a clause that allows the State to make “special provision for the advancement of any economically weaker sections of citizens”.
