I am personally against the policy of reservation. If at all reservation is the way to uplift certain section of our society, it should be given on some terms and conditions. May be like theses---

1. Only one generation (one person) should get the benefit of reservation.
2. He has to pay some tax for the welfare of his own community.
3. One person should get the benefit only once (In education or in service).
4. The obvious one.. Two chidren norm.


  • Exactly! Although, I'm not in favor of reservations at all, if its a must, it should be given on the basis of economic conditions (and not on caste).

    What you've suggested are excellent points!

  • Reservations in IITs/IIMs and central universities could go up to 49.5%..some thing to think about..

  • I would say that reservations are required to uplift the communities which havent been able to rise up, even after 55 years of development of the country. Reservations on economic basis are a good idea.

    Reservations today are such that a person can get the best without actually making best of the efforts. So something has to be thought which helps increse the competence of person being reserved for. I agree to the idea of one person benefitting only once. If everytime one gets the benefit than he doesnt need to do except to wait for the right opportunity.

  • @ anon.. Nothing can be better than bringing truely backward people to the main stream,,but facilities should be given with certain responsibilities.What is the point in giving 4 children of an IAS officer reservations,because they belong to cerain caste???

  • Ya, reservation sux.

    The points you've made are really good. Also, eservation should be given only to people who are economically backward people and not just on the basis of caste.
