There is existing social inequality in India. There are some who

get less opportunities.

2. Affirmative action is needed to benefit this lot of people and bring

them out of their poverty

3. Reservations have a great potential

HAVE RESERVATIONS REALLY FAILED THEIR PURPOSE? In 1953 , the Kaka Kalelkar commission found 2399 castes and communities to be backward In 1989 , the Mandal Commission found that the number had been increased to 3743 In 2005 , the number was found to be 4418 The number of backward castes have only increased Not a SINGLE community has been taken off the backward list!!!

In 1953 , the Kaka Kalelkar commission found 2399 castes and communities to be backward

In 1989 , the Mandal Commission found that the number had been increased to 3743

In 2005 , the number was found to be 4418

BUT WHY? The founding fathers of our nation predicted that reservations would be required for just 15 years. Reservations have been in place for 60 years now, and have permeated all spheres of modern society. Now three generations have elapsed, yet reservations seem to be just increasing, instead of being phased out.

Who should benefit from reservations? INHERENT TALENT + OPPORTUNITIES = SUCCESS Presence of merit Lack of opportunity These are the people you want to benefit
