Disadvantages of reservation system in India
Reservation has become the topic of group discussion amongst us over the years. As it has advantages, it does have few disadvantages. Disadvantages that are causing many kind of problems in society. As it is helping many backward classes, it is also affecting forward class people because of the quota system. At the present scenario, not every backward class people is financially weak or uninfluential and not every forward is rich. So, I find the concept of Caste based Reservation very dissolutional. This way one rightful candidate is not given the opportunity he/she deserves.
Condition of General Category has actually taken a drastic turn and is deteriorating a several meritorious students/Candidates are not given the opportunities they deserve.
Below are a few Disadvantages of Reservation in India:
Only Reserved are Deserved
As per a national Survey only 0.7% of entire population gets scholarship through merit rest are reserved. Students studying hard and from General category don’t have a bright chance to grab the opportunity even if he/ she is from financially unstable background. Time has come to amend the laws and change rules for the good.
Not Reaching Needy
Reservation has emerged as one discussion topic. People don’t realize how this has not been reaching masses where it should. Rich and influential backward caste candidates are getting opportunities and benefited from it while poor backward class people, Harijans are still deprived of the facilities they rightfully possess. The reservation system is so corrupt and is used in negative way for meeting electoral requirements that it fails to meet its actual propaganda of helping and upraising Dalits and those who are socially and economically backward.
We live in a country comprising people from every religion, every caste and discrimination on the basis of caste, creed, color etc. is offense. The point of Reservation actually go against the idea of Secularism. General people affected by the reservation Quota hates people who are getting benefited even if they don’t need reservation. Actually deprived people are not getting their rights. This leads to a world which is not peaceful. You can’t expect a country free of Caste-ism if it itself offers Reservation on the basis of Caste.
Migration of Talent
The real talented people of India, the one who truly deserve to be here are not getting enough job opportunities, better career options making them migrate to foreign countries where they are offered handsome amount for their skills. We are letting other people use our talent rather than using it ourselves for the development of country.
Lack of Transparency
Number of OBC citizens in our country is still not listed by Indian government. There are people from ST/SC/OBC quota which protest for their rights under current reservation system as they are not receiving benefits. This shows lack of a transparent media. What is happening under cover of Reservation system is unknown to all.
One thing we should all agree upon is time has come to change or modify Reservation policies for the betterment of Country.Elimination of Caste based reservation system and deployment of Economy based Reservation system will bring nothing but stop rich getting richer and poor getting poorer.
