New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday seeks response from the Centre and CBSE on a plea seeking 10% reservation quota for economically weaker sections in Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET), 2019.

A vacation bench comprising Justices Indira Banerjee and Sanjiv Khanna issued notices to the Centre and the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on the plea and asked them to respond to it by July 1, 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 2019.

The petitioners told the apex court that the CBSE published an advertisement on January 23 for conducting CTET in which benefit of 10 per cent reservation had not been given to candidates belonging to economically weaker sections.
