Gujarat Minister Vijay Rupani on Friday announced 10% reservation for economically backward classes in general category. Ruani said " Families with income below Rs 6 lakh per annum will be eligible for this reservation." He added that the notification on reservation will be issued on May 1, 2016. This new quota takes the quotas in the state to nearly 60 per cent, which exceeds the Supreme Court's limit of 50 per cent. This will add to the existing 49.5 per cent reservation for minorities in the state.
