Economically Backward Classes (EBCs) Citizens having annual income less than Rs. 1 lakh and who do not belong to any disadvantaged social category such as Schedule Caste (SC), Schedule Tribe (ST) and Other Backward Classes (OBC) have been categorized as Economically Backward Classes (EBCs) in India.
Those people whose annual family income is less than INR 8,00,000 come under the subcategory of EBC individuals. It is crucial to remember that this group does not belong to any castes classified as SC, ST, or OBC.
The OBC reservations are for the non-creamy layer section of the Other Backward Classes section. For them, a 27% reservation is given. The EWS is for that section of the 'General' classes (not covered under OBC, SC or ST) whose family income is below Rs. 8 lakhs.
