I partially agree with the given statement because the reservation only creates a gap between the different castes the government should have to modify or revise the rules and regulations in the reservation because the best way to identify the deserving candidate is to go into the ground level and maintain the data regarding that because some deserving people are unaware about it, due to which a large gap is created among the people of the nation and it also increasing the poverty.

Guys who are against reservation, I have a simple answer for you.

Abolish the caste system, abolish reservations!

Seriously man do you have to educate yourself before speaking on this? Do you even know how much castism is practised daily in India? Every day 10 Dalit women are raped you know?

Daily there are dozens of caste atrocities happening around. I haven't seen a single general or so-called upper caste pointing that out.

You want everything in your side, Caste title to dominate everyone, good respect in society and education too on your side. Every 5 people out of 6 people who are at below the poverty line are Sc/St/Obc. Do you even know how much trauma is left behind due to castism in the so-called lower cast? And I again say this.

Abolish the caste system and abolish reservations! Always up for debate.

Hi everyone,

I think after the changing of time, and keeping eye on the recent job situation there will need a change after some change in our society. It happens in a large number of cases when a talented general caste student didn't get a chance in higher education or a job for our reservation law. SC/ST/ OBC students also didn't get their certificates due to political reasons many times. We should think about it and need a change or abolish the system. When we speak about equality in society we also see that an sc/St/obc caste student belongs to a good family and has the support of money to bear any higher education but in the opposite site a general caste student who has the same merit didn't get the same chance due to reservation or he has to pay a large number of fees for the same level education.

And, I also support for the change because respected sir, Dr Br Ambedkar write the law in the constitution when the whole system was different there was a tradition for not giving an opportunity to the lower caste people but in modern India, it recover a lot percentage then it not needed that much in our society. For our general level students when we speak about equality then it. Should be maintained for all of us.

The main purpose of reservation for low castes.

The objective of providing reservations to the Scheduled Castes (SCs) , and Scheduled Tribes (STs) in services is not only to give jobs to some persons belonging to these communities. It basically aims at empowering them and ensuring their participation in the decision-making process of the State. Is to have an equalitarian society. The goal is to bring the unequal to the level of equality. It provides Dalits' rights to education, health, housing, property, freedom of religion, free choice of employment, and equal treatment before the law. If Reservation followed in each and every section like private, banks, corporates, government services, etc. You can see low caste people enjoying the Reservation, but there is so many citizens not merely getting Reservation, even if they get they could not survive over it peacefully, we have to include EWS Reservation but this situation is not an end to Reservation.

Hello friends.

My view in this topic is;

Reservation should be abolished as early as possible especially for the competative exams.

Because many general category students are preparing very hard and even scoring more marks than the SC ST category students but not getting selected just because of the caste.

And an SC/ST Category student even scoring less marks than the general category students they are getting selected.

By giving more efforts, being more deserving for the seats the general category students are not getting it.

So, the reservation system based on caste is very bad.

According to my perception.

Reservation is not a way out to equality instead it will lead to social disparity. The earlier reservation was in need of the hour to give everyone equal opportunity but now things have changed so far. Now reservation is not the desired need. I have seen so many examples like ST/SC people enjoying high-quality life still getting reservation which is totally unfair. Now we have to understand the need of an hour. In the present scenario instead of reservation, subsidies should be given to all those who don't have access to get educated. Benefits should be availed on the basis of the financial status of an individual. Then only social disparity can be eradicated and equality can be spread in real terms.

Hello friends!

Education is very important to everyone. Reservation is one thing that was created earlier to bring out the equality in our society but this hasn't accomplished till date. In many parts of country, still untouchability and other evil things are being practiced. Number of seats however must be decreased that are on caste basis and more seats should be reseved on economical basis so that poor people can also get opportunities.

Reservation on caste basis can't be removed till the date every Hindu is treated like Hindu. There should not be any division of caste! Everyone must have one identity.

Hello everyone.

In my point of view, it should be Banned because sometimes it also increases the rate of brain drain.

The reservation system was introduced by Dr BR Ambedkar to provide equal opportunity and works for lower caste people.

But in present time reservation is not required because due to reservation system talented person not getting better opportunity and they are going abroad.

And other countries are taking advantage of it.

Due to reservation India is not growing perfectly.

In my opinion, reservation should be based on economic condition, people who are facing economic problem he should be given reservation in education or other fields.

Hi, good morning to all of you. I am Ansh Yadav.

Our GD topic is reservation in India.

We know that India is a developing and progressive country. So the reservation should not allow our country. Many developing countries like America China, there is no caste system there. So reservation in India is very harmful to us. And we should abolish this evil and also shall abolish untouchability.

Thank You.
