Q. Write an essay in 250 words expressing your views about caste based reservation in India.

Reservation is defined as the act of reserving, withholding or keeping back, or an arrangement by which arrangements are secured in advance. The system of caste based reservation in India encompasses a series of measures taken in order to reserve access to seats in the various governing bodies and educational institutions. It intendeds to favour historically underprivileged tribes and castes, listed as Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes by the Government of India.

The reservation was undertaken to tackle the historical oppression, inequality, and discrimination faced by members of these communities. But now-a-days, economically sound people from lower castes make use of most of the reserved seats, thus counteracting the spirit of reservations. Those who really need to be benefited by this system don’t even know about their rights and how to claim for it.  The benefits of reservation have been denied to people who deserve it the most just because they belong to a caste that comes under the unreserved category. Instead, youth from these communities who belong to well-to-do families are found to exploit this reservation system.

Reservation must be given to the needy people. Rich people belonging to SC/ST/OBC community must not enjoy the fruits of reservation just because they belong to a lower caste. Steps must be taken by the Indian Government to amend it, revise or change it. Reservation must be given to financially poor people, physically handicapped or widows with no source of income.
