Federation of Old Cornwall Societies

The Federation of Old Cornwall Societies was formed in 1924, on the initiative of Robert Morton Nance, with the objective of collecting and maintaining "all those ancient things that make the spirit of Cornwall — its traditions, its old words and ways, what remains to it of its Celtic language and nationality". The motto of the federation--as written on their web site--is "Cuntelleugh an brewyon ues gesys na vo kellys travyth", which translated into English is "Gather ye the fragments that are left, that nothing be lost"; the motto in the OCS logo is the Cornish phrase. The first Old Cornwall Society was established by Robert Morton Nance in St Ives in 1920; the OCS celebrate the old Cornish tradition of midsummer bonfires held on 23 June each year. The hilltop bonfires that form a chain are held at Kit Hill, St Breock Beacon, Castle An Dinas, Redruth. In the autumn the harvest festival known as Crying The Neck is celebrated by the OCS. Old Cornwall, the journal of the Federation, began publication in 1925 and is published twice yearly.

The first editor was Robert Morton Nance.

Economically Weaker Section

Economically Weaker Section in India is a subcategory of people belonging to the General Category having an annual family income less than ₹8 lakhs and who do not belong to any reserved category such as SC/ST/OBC. If a candidate who doesn't fall under castes recognised as SC/ST/OBC by the Govt. of India & doesn't avail any form of reservations & his/her annual family income is above the prescribed limit of ₹8 lakhs by Government of India he/she will be recognised as a candidate from General category and not from EWS category. The Union Government of India tabled the Constitution Bill, 2019 which provided 10% additional quota for the EWS students amongst the erstwhile Unreserved category or General category students; the terms Economically Weaker Section and Economically Backward Class are not meant to be confused with each other in India. The definition of EWS has been defined by the Government of India whereas the definition of EBC and Most Economically Backward Class vary in different states as well as institutions.

The Government of India earlier did not provide any reservations to EWS candidates. There is a significant percentage of the Indian population; the eligibility to get the EWS certificate is not only purely based on annual family income but based on the held property. The income limit has been set by the central government for admission to central government-owned colleges and jobs offered by the central government. State governments are given the authority to change the eligibility criteria and to extend the income limit further for candidates seeking reservation under EWS category which will be valid only in state-owned colleges and state government's jobs as deemed fit for the respective states. People belonging to Economically Weaker Section since 1 February 2019 now get 10% reservation in education and government jobs of India like OBC, SC, ST. There was huge unrest among people which came out in many ways including the form of anti-reservation agitations. On 7 January 2019, The Union Cabinet had approved 10% reservation in government jobs and educational institutions for the Economically Weaker Section in the General category.

It was decided by the cabinet that this would be above the existing 50 % reservation. On 12 January 2019, The Economic Weaker Section Reservation Bill Article 15 and Article 16 which ensures 10% reservations to the poor and lower-middle-class people in upper castes who were denied any kind of affirmative action was cleared by the President of India, Ram Nath Kovind; the EWS bill was tabled in Lok Sabha, the Lower House of the Indian Parliament on 8 January 2019 and it was passed on the same day. The EWS Bill was passed by the Upper House of the Indian Parliament on 9 January; the President approved the Bill on 12 January 2019 and a gazette was released on this bill which turned it into a Law. Gujarat became the first state to enact this law on 14 January 2019. An NGO'Youth For Equality' has questioned and challenged the bill in the Apex court on grounds that it breaches the ceiling of 50% reservations set by Supreme Court of India, stating that it supports the reservations of the Economically Weaker Section but wants it to be amalgamated with the OBC quota which stands at 27%, thus not breaching the 50% cap set by the Apex Court.

Leaders of the Backward classes have decided to approach the Supreme Court over this issue. On 25 January 2019, The Supreme Court refused to stay the 10% reservation given to GEN-EWS category in government jobs and educational institutions. EWS certificate can be used to avail the 10% reservation for the Economically Weaker Section in higher education all over the India and government jobs. Candidate's annual family income must be less than Rs 8 lakhs per annum, his family must not own more than 5 acres of agriculture land. The residential flat area should be below 1000 sq ft; the residential plot's area should be below 100 square yards if in a notified municipality sector. The residential plot's area should be below 200 square yards if in a non-notified municipality sector. Two schemes that are designed for the EBCs and MEBCs are the Post-Matric Scholarship & Interest Subsidy on Educational Loans for overseas Studies.
