As a matter of fact, I say we should stop reservations on the basis of caste and religion. Even if they continue also the reservation should be given to only one time to the family. A collector who belongs to a reservation category and got selected on the reservation basis to that post can't claim reservation to their children. I think many learned people will say yes to that. The benefits that are offered to a community is not really giving benefit to the people in that community who really deserves it. So I am completely against the reservations.
Again giving more than 50% reservation can't be accepted and all people should understand the fate of the students who really deserves but not able to make it due to these practices.
I personally object reservation system in the education department. I will quote an example here and I am not discriminating any sect or caste here. It is my personal opinion only.
While I appeared for competitive exams, the maximum rank with which I can get MBBS degree in a private college is 2500. I got somewhere near 1900 (I don't remember, it was 14 years ago). During the counselling there was only one seat left in one of my favorite institution. I was second in queue (electronically). The person above me has a rank of 7500 and I felt the seat was mine. But I've lost the seat to him due to reservation.
Why I am narrating this story is, in education system to what are we giving importance? A person's talent/knowledge or the reservation? A person with good knowledge will obviously get a good rank in competitive exams but many (like may) are unable to get seats due to reservation system. I find this quite bitter. And am against reservation policy implied by our government.
PS: Am not implying in my above narration that people with reservation aren't brilliant or bright in studies. I meant to say that non reservation candidates who got good percentage or rank are falling victims to this system. Hope you all understood this.
