Campaign against increase in Reservations sign now

Hello everyone,

> Though most of you will be busy with exams, i find

> concept of merit.
>
> For those not clued in, the recent announcements
> from the Ministry
> of HRD have re-instated the provisions of the Mandal
> Commission
> recommendations of 1980 of reserving 27\% of all
> seats in institutes
> of higher education being centrally funded for
> OBC's. In effect,
> this alongwith the quota already administered for
> SC's and ST's
> ricochets the quota to a staggering 49.5 \%
>
> This act will come into being in institutions such
> as Delhi
> University, IIT's, IIM's and other prominent
> institutes on which
> India prides itself. To create reservations for 49.\%
> of the total
> seats completely undermines every notion of the so

> it seeks to bring about.
>
> The concept of reservations in India has not worked
> for 50 years,

> aimed at the "aam
> aadmi's" vote, while cutting away from the real
> reasons that foster
> an ever increasing urban-rural divide. Instead of
> focusing on
> increased infrastructure creation, strengthening the
> rural school
> systems and quality of education, creating trained
> manpower, cutting
> corruption and so on, the administration has instead
> played the
> reservation card yet again.
>
> Think about it. In the year 2006 itself, 49.5\% of
> the seats shall be
> reserved in DU. It is hard enough for a student in
> todays day and
> age even with 85\% to get into a good college. Now
> the chances, which
> were not too bright to begin with, are slashed by
> half.

> The next steps:
>
> CAMPAIGN AGAINST INCREASE IN RESERVATIONS
>
> I strongly oppose the proposed increase in

    I wholeheartedly support this. The IITs are great institution not just because of the entrance exams, but also because of the fierce competetion and relentless march of meritocracy. If it were not for the people I lived with, IIT would have been just anot

    Even Nehru ji were against the caste based reservation. At a time when India is becoming a major player in the global economy by the day rather then trying to uplift all sections of the society, initiatives like this pull the country back to the dark ages

    This is absolutely ridiculous, just we've been providing the reservations since we became independant but it was decided for first few years only, but this is happening endlessly. Just give them a chance to come with us and stand with with the equal compe
