The Indian Reservation System? What It is?
I agree with the author that the reservation should be allowed to the weaker sections of the society considering the financial wellbeing of the individuals & to the neediest of the sections of society like the physically handicapped.
As a common man, I always feel financial status based reservations should be the order of the day. In fact, no reservations but financial help to people who are not able to manage their studies is what more justified. In jobs, there should not be any reservations and merit people only should get the jobs irrespective of their caste and religion.
What the Govt can do is help the downtrodden and poor people in some discreet way like exempting their school and college fee. Helping them to attend job interviews etc. These helps should not be on a regular basis but should be based on the present financial status of the person. If a poor person is selected for a good job, there is no point in supporting him further.
This requires a thorough overhauling of the present system and for this a strict and stringent governance is also required.
Knowledge is power.
But problem is almost all such schemes are being availed by people who actually do not need it.
