Thumbs down 50% quota in IIT/IIM

from
http://www.financialexpress.com/late...IMs~with~quota

NEW DELHI, APRIL 6: The Centre said today 49.5 per cent of the total seats in IITs, IIMs and Central universities, including Delhi University, would be reserved for OBCs, SCs and STs. At present, 22.5 per cent seats are reserved for SCs (15%) and STs (7.5%) in these institutes.


How long this should continue? Are we going forward or backward???

Vote bank tactics ... Harming the educated population. These sort politics can only change if the educated lot make that lil effort to post their VOTE.

Ahh..when are we going to leave behind the socialist ideology? Not only will the quota system put the worthy at a disadvantage but it'll also undermine the reputation of the institutes.

Ohhh GOD..... this is heights !! Whatever is hapenning is really bad for entire nation. These politicians are just ruining the education systems and that is indirectly harming our social lives .... we work so hard competing through exams and those so called certificate holders take our share of cake so easily.

IMHO, everything should be merit based.

I have no issues with the ones who deserve. When I was in college, this guy from remote Himachal Pradesh used to study with us. he was probably the only educated person in his village. For people like him, quotas are fine but what about second generation quota holders? An IAS officer's ward can't be at a disadvantage! Why let him go in thru easily?
Though even for other "deserving" candidates, free education and scholorships will suffice. Why not make them slog just like everyone else!

They should just open one IIM just for the reserved class and OBC.

Primary education is where we need reservation, not at post graduation levels.

We all definitely know it is the so called well-to-do people who can get a reservation certificate are the guys who make the best use and then leaves the course midway.

I suppose we will have a day when there will be a reservation for the primeminister's and president's post

Politicians got nothing to lose....
Whether they do this or not the educated class anyways does not vote for them!....
And why shouldn't they make reservations for their own class??

getting admissions in good colleges is really tough nowdays especially for science. commerce students have it a bit easier.about the reservation part, I think they should be working towards setting up colleges in rural areas instead of making people from backward tribes and castes migrate to the city and study there.

Backward of course!
And there is already talk of amending the Companies Act and reserve jobs for SC/ST/OBCs in the private sector compulsorily. Worse, all parties seem to have a consensus on that!

Very true! That dreaded proposal is on the way. I also surprised to hear that some biggies like Tatas are even happy with it!!!! The probable reason is that they can get some other tax or similar benefit by complying with govt. proposals!
