Recently a petition was filed in the apex court seeking reservation under EWS category in the CTET (Central Teacher Eligibility Test) 2019.

Though, the Supreme Court while rejecting the plea has said, “For qualifying examinations there cannot be any reservations. This is wholly misconceived. This (CTET) is merely a qualifying examination. The issue of reservation will come up only at the time of admission.”

The matter was sought by the bench led by Justice Indira Banerjee and Sanjiv Khanna.

The petition was filed by two people, who belonged to Economically Weaker Section (EWS) and are also the candidates of the CTET exams.

The petition read, “Recently the CBSE has published advertisement dated Jan 23, 2019 for conducting Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET), 2019 in, which this benefit has not been given to the Economically Weaker Section of the society and therefore the present writ petition is being filed to make sure that people covered under EWS of the society are given similar benefit like other reserved category (SC/ST and OBC) starting with CTET-2019 advertisement.”

The petition has been filed after taking into grant the constitutional amended act according to, which says the centre has provided for a 10% reservation to the citizens from general category belonging to the economically weaker section of the society, in addition to the already existing reservation policy for the benefit of other reserved categories such as Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe, Other Backward Class and Physically Handicapped.

The counsel appearing for petitioner, Rajneesh Kumar Pandey and others referred to the notification for CTET examination and shot back, “The notification for the examination does not give any reservation to Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe either.”

Though, the bench rejected the plea earlier but later on after the urge of the lawyer the bench has agreed to hear the plea on May 16.
