EWS(Economically Weaker Sections) in India is a category of people with an annual income of fewer than Rs.8 lakhs and Who does not belong to any reserved class, for example, OBC, SC, ST. EWS refers to only General categories that were economically weaker in India.
Guys, you know very well about the number of people living below the poverty line and belonging to EWS in India. The government of India earlier did not provide any reservation to Economically Weaker Sections(EWS).
