Lok Sabha passes teachers reservation bill

Lok Sabha passes teachers reservation bill

The Lok Sabha passed the Central Educational Institutions Reservation in Teachers Cadre Bill 2019 on 1 July that seeks for the first time a 10% quota for economically weaker sections (EWS) in the recruitment of teachers in central government run higher educational institutions and enforces SC, ST and OBC reservation in universities as a single unit instead of at the department level.

The central government has already decided to implement the 10% EWS quota for eligible students from the current academic year by increasing the seat strength by 25%.

However, this is the first time that the Centre has moved to reserve 10% in faculty hiring for EWS candidates.

How it will impact the current reservation system?

The Central Educational Institutions Reservation in Teachers Cadre Bill 2019 also seeks to provide reservation to the Scheduled Castes (SCs), Schedule Tribes (STs) and Other Backward Classes (OBC) in teaching jobs at government-run higher educational institutes by taking the whole institution as a unit instead of departments and courses.
