Maratha students and candidates in the state will now be able to avail 10% EWS reservation. Admission to educational institutions will benefit from 10% reservation. Apart from this, Maratha candidates can avail 10% reservation even in direct service recruitment. The state government has issued an order in this regard.
The state government is trying to provide relief to the Maratha community after the Supreme Court canceled the Maratha reservation. The decision was taken by the government as the Maratha community could not take advantage of the 10% EWS reservation when Maratha reservation was in force in the state. But now that the Maratha reservation has been canceled, the government has decided to give EWS reservation benefit to the Maratha community.
