KOCHI: The Kerala High Court has come up with a decisive order clarifying that non-religious people are also entitled to economic reservation. The order also said that this is a constitutional right. The court said that people belonging to the non-religious category should be given a non-religious certificate so that they can avail the benefits available to the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS). The court directed the state government to immediately formulate policies and norms for this.

A government which claims to be progressive cannot deny the benefit due to citizens belonging to Economically Weaker Sections merely for the reason that they do not belong to any community or caste, the court said.
