  • Give equal opportunities

    As in the olden days, lower castes were badly harassed and discriminated. To uplift the lower castes and give them equal opportunities reservations are must. Not even today u can find people in village getting enough food due to lack of education opportunities. To prove their their talent reservations are must.

  • Yes reservation should be there...

    Since India is a democratic country therefore, there should be equality among all and through reservation equality is maintained in our country as it gives chance to backward classes...And according to our constitution we all have same fundamental rights and one of fundamental right is right against exploitation and since these classes are unaware of it then how will they fight against it? Then anyone can exploit them...So, reservation should be there..

  • Yes Reservation should be there for few more years

    Upper casts has ruined SC/STs families over 2000 years , giving reservation for just 3 generations are not enough to conquer the loss they have faced over the years. They are still poor in majority and deserve chance to get educated. Reservation should be still given to them for few more generations to let them come on same social status as Brahmins.

  • Yes, it should be.

    The base of reservation is not economic but socially, educationally backwardness. It clears the structure of hierarchy in the society which is so ridge that it can't be easily break even through economic status. So the purpose is clear to equalize the society.
    Second, you can't compare two unequal things with the same parameters. So before for fair competition equal merit should be there and these merits or talent also require some amount of cultural capital which comes through an inheritance. So economic status can' t be appropriate parameter until this huge gap is not fulfilled.
    It is not an overtake of 'meritorious' student, if they are really 'meritorious' they would be surely selected. Equality should be based on equal parameters, not one sided.

  • Reservation is need for socially discriminated sections

    When few people made caste system and then followed some of the very unsocial norms like untouchability not only social life of poor fellows was affected but also economical conditions also worsened,these conditions hindered the status of lower caste people.There was no possibility to attain equality at that time,so to make this gap between lower caste(also majority poor) and upper caste narrowed..Reservation is must for a particular period of time, of course some of politician may use they factors as vote banks but social welfare of each and every indian is necessity also according to Indian constitution.

  • It started well but rules needs to be amended

    I am sure most of us don't even know why reservation came into picture in the first place. We start questioning/cursing the system just because we are not directly getting benefited out of it. Was it given to the people randomly or on lottery basis, NO! It was given to those backward community who had no education, money, awareness etc.The country was not treating the backward community as equal. Unfortunately reservation was based on the caste system (and not on the economic conditions of the people) .It was easy at that point of time to recognize under privileged based on their castes(as most of these under privileged people belonged to some specific castes). In today's relevance one could question or argue over the caste as the sole factor to identify these people who are given reservations, but no one can deny that it has actually helped India in getting only better. Every system/ rule has its pros and cons, so has reservation system and it needs to updated to match the current scenario/perspective/needs.
    If a nation has to develop/prosper then it will have to take all of citizens forward, leaving a group of people behind wont help.

  • There must be reservation.

    There are still people in the backward community who have no education. The country is not treating the backward community as equally as we think it does. We must give them enough facilities so that they can develop and become equal to the forward class. After everyone is equal, reservation can be stopped, which would take at least 50 more years.

  • Reservations a Positive discrimination

    Reservations a considered a Positive discrimination. When there are two parties which are not equal then it is not fare to treat them equaly. The existing situation of inequality has to be removed first. How to do it? The most disadvantaged among the two has to be provided with a positively discriminated treatment so that they can make use of the opportunity to become equals. Hence Reservations in case of Sc/St and Women are inevitable for a rapidly developing nation like ours. Reservations reflect the principle of " EQUALITY" enshrined in the Constitution.
    When special coaching is provided for children who face difficulties in coping with fellow companions, why not reservations for the disadvantaged sections (SC/ST, Women) who have been deprived of opportunities for decades together?

  • It empowers backward class

    When any class comes up , society comes up , then a region comes up , and by all a nation comes up. As one not gets an opportunity to complete his dreams then it is not fair . All is considered equal in eye of god as well as peoples then why discrimination is there ??

  • Yes, there should be reservation as

  • Nope it should not be there

    1000s of answers are already posted here I won't post anything different government should scrub reservation and let deserved candidateS GET opportunity instead of students who seek advantage of reservation. I bet the government that will scrub reservation will really last for 100 years coz it will work towards new India

  • Caste based reservation is curse for Indian Society

    Ambedkar introduced reservation only for 10 years but it seems like noone would like to work when they are getting everything free..

    4% dalits are still dalits, while they are getting discounts in almost every thing.

    Those who says lower caste people were treated as untouchable, will they highlight what was the reason..

    2% sikhs and 1% jews in india are without any reservation.

    Mr. Ambedker earned his doctorates in economics from both Columbia University and the London School of Economics, and gained a reputation as a scholar for his research in law, economics and political science, this all without any reservation and people says they were hindered..

    At the time when he earned his degree, only 2% people in india could have afford foreign education ..

    But those who support caste based reservation will keep on supporting because "Free ka mile tho sabk accha lagta hai... "

  • Reservation leads to disintegration of a nation

    As in india many local tribes preferreservation only for the reason that they get benifits from the government and get higher job opportunities.
    In Haryana, the "JAT ANDOLAN " took place only for giving Jats Reservation and Expressing them as one of the backward tribe prevailing in India.
    Very Thankyou For Patient listening.

  • Reservations need to be revised

    It is not a valid argument that general caste tormented lower castes hence reservation should be there for 2000 year.By that logic,I can say that the British conquered India,so we go on a full on war with the United Kingdom.By that logic,I can say that women were oppressed in society hence women should also do the same to men.That never works.You cannot remove darkness by darkness.Reservations were made in the first place to give equal opportunities to the lower castes.We get it why it was there.Because most of the lower caste people were from poor economic background and didn't had the privileges that the upper caste had.They has to work a lot harder to get on par with the upper castes.

    Today,India is one of the largest economies in the world.We have candidates from lower and upper caste who get privileges and opportunities.But still,some reserved candidates exploit the nature of reservations.They can afford lots of reference books for competitive exams,spend lakhs of rupees in education.But still many of them use reservations.On the other hand,a general category student who may not get access to these facilities do not get chance to get into the job post because they couldn't score the cut-off,even though they got more than any reserved candidate.

    We should promote equality and removal of the caste system altogether.But reservations are promoting caste system in Indian culture even though it is stated that no one can discriminate anyone on the basis of caste.That is one big irony.No other country has this kind of a archaic system.We are the only ones.And I think its time that reservations should be removed.Rather,out government could work on making a system that help those who are from a poor economic background.

  • Sorry, not sorry, but the existing reservation system is trash. It needs serious refreshing.

    I live in the United States and would be considered OC or general category candidate. Thankfully, while I’m not directly affected by the institution of caste-based reservation, the US has implemented a similar system here called Affirmative Action for underrepresented minorities in certain degree programs and professions. While I don’t think the idea should be abandoned completely, it gives BCs a false sense of entitlement. I understand the system exists because of BC discrimination by OCs for some millennia, but to give someone who truly is not capable of success in a supposed meritocracy based on birth alone is really appalling, given that there are far superior/more deserving candidates of upper caste. We should not deprive/wait list people so quickly without considering their situation. From what I understand, not all candidates are of equal background; BC candidate may be wealthier than OC, etc. A lot of factors need to be taken into consideration before assigning a seat or position to someone who truly doesn’t deserve it. I’m not saying that SC/ST/OBC are not truly deserving; that would be a huge misunderstanding and overgeneralization. I just wish they looked at each applicant holistically like they do in America, not to say things are easy over here, either. If you really have a problem with your marks not being high enough for government quota or think you deserve some sort of special treatment simply because of class, you should come to America where all Indians are grouped into the same boat and considered overrepresented minorities and the majority of white-collar occupations and how easy it is for you to fare with your mentality. Really think the system needs to modified. Right now, it’s such a disaster. Some of you people supporting this outright are crazy. This is true injustice and keeping not only the Brahmins and other OCs from succeeding, but it really makes the BC case look really sorry. How can we look at our BC brothers and sisters in the same light if the government implements this forced discrimination? We must think in terms of merit and social equality.

  • No it is not right

    Because the deserving candidates are left behind just because they were not one among the socially deprived section.There was a time when people were depressed about the fact that they were born an st or sc but now people considers themselves lucky as they are endowed with all riches and glory
