Q.

Govt. gives reservation on basis of OC/OBC/BC/SC/ST etc..
India should not be divided on the basis of OBC or non -OBC or caste. India should have only two classes : RICH and POOR.
Govt. should help those by reservation who are economically poor in every field in any catagory.

Absolutely.My answer is in the affirmative.
Here is one question of yours that should provoke no arguement .
The rich no matter which class or caste they belong deserve no handouts..
The poor no matter which class or caste they belong to are poor and they need a push from the Government and society. They are the real underprivileged class and not a rich OBC or a rich SC/ST

Since independence, the issue of reservation for the backward communities has been a 'trump card' for almost all political parties. Time and again this card has been played to 'balkanise' the Indian society. All parties have had a very professional approach towards this social malaise.

Even the regional parties have been using this card frequently.

Reservation in any form cannot change a SC/ST into an 'upper caste'.But economic upliftment will definitely give him the much-needed social dignity in today's highly materialistic society.

I would like to know, with statistics, whether reservation benefits given to persons since independence, resulted in their social upliftment.

Once a backward gets economically well off he starts disassociating himself with his 'not-so-fortunate' brethren.

If I become PM with absolute majority,
First, Education will be brought under defence ministry as a separate wing in addition to Army, Navy and Airforce. All schools and colleges will be nationalized and same syllabus and mode of teaching from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. No question on Caste, Religion Community will be asked during admission. English and Hindi will be compulsory languages. All schools will be residential schools with military training.

Secondly, Entire land will be nationalized and instead of property tax, lease rent will be collected from occupants. No land can either be sold or bought by individuals. However, they can take any land on lease by declaring the end use of it and its contribution to the country.

All nationals will be issued ID cards and only one Bank Account. No more cash transactions. All by debit cards or credit cards or by cheques only. Whatever income one gets has to pay IT 30% of which 10% will be returned back to him at the age of 60. Till then ...more

This is a dream of many including me but our dream will continue to remain a dream and although your idea is good, it will not be implemented because the law makers will simply not change the prevailing reservation system. This is because their own future depends on these reservations.

No. Govt. should help the poor by helping them with free education. There should be no reservation on any basis.

Quallification, Intelligence, Skill, Talent Excellence, Merit and all virtues can go to hell under the Govt.'s reservation policy and India is losing such genious people in the administration and defence departments. It is painful to see even fourth and fifth graders discussing about which categories they fall under to weigh their opportunities to life. India is the only country in the whole world where people fight to be backward ! All this in a so called secular and democratic country where every man should be treated equally. Now backwardness, poverty and unemployment are the main curse among the forward community.

No doubt the continuance of reservation after 60 years of independence is the biggest failure of govt n indian constitution.Our constitution doesnt allows any discrimination in matters of job,education or other services.d basic theory behind giving reservation was to make d downtroddens n underdogs able n similar to others so that they can manage to survive in an open competition.Our const makers were aware of d fact that these suppressed wont survive in an open competition.Thats why they give some relaxation n other facilities to d weaker sections.Thats was d only reason behind giving reservation which was for d good purpose only.Ambedkar insisted on d continuance of this policy till next 10 years only.
the continuation of this policy even now is causing heart burning in d higher castes since their members get frustrated wen person of far lower merit than theirs is enjoying d benefits of employment in govt sectors or admission in premier insts with little bit of hard work.
