Hello Aspirant

Yes every state government EWS Certificate is considered in UGC Net. EWS certificate is the certificate for Economically Weaker Section of General Category. This certificate have a criteria that your annual income should be less then 8 lacs per annum. You should not hae big land area and properties. This certificate is not for SC/ST/OBC. So state does not matter for any of the exam in EWS category.


I hope your question has been answered properly.

All the best!
