EWS refers to Economically weaker Sections. Students whose familiy income is less than 2 lakh per annum are kept under EWS category. But in NTSE , there is no reservation for EWS candidates. Only reservation is provided to SC/ST/OBC/PH candidates.
Hope it helps!!
In the NTSE form, 10% of the seats are reserved for EWS category. EWS is a reserved category which refers to economically weaker section who though belongs to the general category but have a family income of less than 8 lakhs per annum. They do not fall under OBC/SC/ST.
