New Delhi: The Supreme Court today sought the responses from the Centre and the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on a plea seeking ten per cent reservation for economically weaker sections in the Central Teacher Eligibility Test, 2019.

A vacation bench, comprising Justices Indira Banerjee and Sanjiv Khanna, asked them to respond by 1st July, the next date of hearing.

The court was hearing a plea by some petitioners belonging to economically weaker sections and planning to appear in CTET.

The petitioners told the court that CBSE published an advertisement in January this year for conducting CTET in which benefit of ten per cent reservation has not been given to candidates belonging to economically weaker sections. (AIR NEWS)
