Cabinet approves 10% reservation in govt jobs for economically weaker upper castes
Updated : January 08, 2019 06:59 AM IST
The reservation will be for those belonging to the upper castes and earning less than Rs 8 lakh per year, according to the sources.
With the Congress and the BJP leaving no stone unturned to woo the voters, the move could play a significant role in favouring the Modi government that is seeking to retain power in the next term as well.
