These institutions are respected because......Indian Army, Indian Navy, Indian Air Force, Higher Judiciary, ISRO. These are various institutions. All these institutions are well-known in India. People have tremendous faith in the three wings of the Armed Forces. Indian citizens respect Supreme Court and High Court judges. ISRO scientists are making us proud by scaling greater heights in every six months or so. They are now being discussed not only in India, but by the entire world because of their successes.
But why are these institutions respected? Indian Armed Forces are the most well-trained forces. Indian Armed Forces are the most ethical forces of the world. The judges of higher judiciary are very learned and men of integrity. The ISRO scientists and engineers are among the best in the world.
But there is another reason behind the successes of these Indian institutions. There is no system of reservation in these institutions. Selection and further advancement in the career are entirely based upon merit, unlike other Government offices.
