Subject: Extension of benefit of reservation of Economically Weaker Sections (EWSs) in engagement of Trade Apprentice.

Respected Sir,

With due regards, your kind attention is invited to the Constitution (One Hundred and Third Amendment) Act, 2019 whereby the State was empowered for making special provision for advancement of any Economically Weaker Sections (EWSs) of citizens.

In line with above provision, reservation to EWSs has been granted in Education and Government Jobs by the Govt.

Further, Trade Apprentice as governed by Apprenticeship Act, 1961 falls neither in the category of Education nor Jobs, but reservations for SC/ ST category and OBC category were provisioned vide Act 27 of 1973 and Act 36 of 2007 respectively. It lacks any provision in the act for Economically Weaker Sections of Society.

This issue was raised before Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, Govt of India through Min of Defence but the same was regretted on the plea that EWS reservation is in education and government jobs of India similarly like OBC, SC, ST, whereas apprenticeship training under the Apprenticeship Act, 1961 is neither education nor a government job so EWS reservation is not applicable for it.

In this circumstance, you are requested for making suitable provision for trade apprentices under the Apprenticeship Act, 1961 for extension of benefit of reservation of Economically Weaker Sections.

Thanking you

Sincerely Yours

Sd/-
