Social inclusion through EWS Quota under RTE Act 2009 with reference to Dr. B.R. Ambedkar’s vision
The theme of reservation usually ignites controversies and gives pushes to debate and strong reactions. The idea of favoring backwards with the help of reservations and quota for a definite time period came from the legendry Dr. B.R. Ambedkar. He expected that the policy of reservation initially could compensate the backwardness of marginalized. But the irony is, after so many years of implementation of reservations, the policy of reservation has not created a noticeable impact over the society. The reserved category complains of inaccessibility and corruption and the unreserved category is frustrated and disappointed due to the edge, the reserved category has in education and employment due to reservation. The EWS Quota under RTE Act 2009 i.e. a Quota of 25% seats to be reserved in private unaided schools for poor children has reaffirmed in the belief of providing reservation for ensuring Social Inclusion. Although this Quota has roots in the philosophy of Dr. Ambedkar but there is a need to examine its relevance in the present scenario.
