Should reservation be abolished in education and government Jobs in India ?

TSR Subramanian verbalised the sentiments of a large majority of Indians when he said "You cannot under good administration distinguish between government servant and government servant on anything except seniority and merit. Any other consideration will destroy the system". Reservation was introduced in India due to a division in society based on the caste system, with an aim to bring underprivileged classes at par with the privileged ones. Numerous reservations like reservation for women, reservation for physically challenged, reservation for economically backward classes and reservation for scheduled castes have been introduced over the years.

But, the aim of providing equal opportunities to backward classes has been defeated by the misuse of the reservation system. It has divided the society further, creating disgruntlement in the minds of deserving candidates who have to give up their seats in professional colleges or government jobs to undeserving candidates from reserved categories. This has created a workforce that is incompetent and incapable of competing at global levels. At the same time, reservation has been unable to bridge the gap between the rich and the poor. Ideally, quota seats in government jobs or educational institutions should be offered to deserving candidates from financially or developmentally backward classes. 

Instead, politicians use reservation as a ploy to earn votes and win elections. The widespread protest against the Mandal Commission was a clear indication of how the masses do not want blanket reservation as it creates chaos, confusion and rift in society. How can a policy be deemed fit just when it snatches the right of a meritorious person to hand it on a platter to an undeserving candidate ? (Total words - 270)

  4. Ur wrong portrayal abt reservation for ur own benefits doesnt mislead the public. They are well aware of! For rest, we are there to justify.

    First of all, plz go through the Indian Constitutional Law and Use Some Brain before opposing anything. Simply coming to oppose without knowing the fundamental of reservation.
