Is there a need to modify the reservation system or not?
Reservation for socially and economically backward classes is no doubt a noble article in Indian constituency. If we keep an eye over Vedic society, their was no caste system, rather people were being identified by their profession or what they do, not by birth. Caste by birth is never a good idea. Reservation or quota in India is always a matter of discussion and controversy. What is the sole motto of reservation?

Misuse and misinterpretation of quota system has always raised eyebrows of stalwart intellectuals. Is the quota system doing its sole job properly? It is highly reported that there should be a change in the running reservation system that means the system should not be implemented for those have already come to the mainstream society despite being SC or ST category and they should be considered as general, basically in educational institutions and public sector job. Once a family or family head of the family is established and serving the nation heading a well paid job, their heirs should not take the reservation or quota facility which can help an underdeveloped family anyway. And if a student's parents are high paid government employees or public sector employees, he/she should not be awarded the scholarship, which is only meant for socially undeveloped people.

MC Raj an eminent human rights activist says, yes, once a backward family is socially and economically developed they should come out of the reservation facility and offer it to the next generation who are still socially and economically undeveloped, quiting the reservation.

Dr. Kaushal Panwar, professoer Delhi University says, Reservation is meant to build the nation altogether offering every one social justice and similarity. Reservation is not merely aimed for economical establishment, rather social similarity, justice and establishment. If any backward person (SC/ST) gets economical establishment that doesn't mean that his/her family got social similarity and caste similarity, so the family should go under reservation system and take its advantages. If any lower caste people gets a good job or gets economical establishment, the upper class never agrees to tie a marriage relationship with his/her, rather comments, how the lower caste got all these!

JNU professor, Dr. Vivek Kumar said, ‚ÄúReservation is not to bring the socially backward classes to the main stream. It is the representation of the group who are been excluded for thousand of years (dhai hazar saal) from the social system. It is a matter of representation not poverty alleviation‚ÄĚ.
