reservation in its present form is not helping the people who need it the most! with time and with the changing social context, every law must be tweaked for betterment, so should reservation policy. logically, continuing reservation policy for same set of people for 60 plus years means that there has been no benefit of reservation and that no one's status, position or condition has changed from what it was earlier. this is even a stronger reason to modify it and make it more targeted. reservation has become more of a political and emotional issue, when there should have been space for rationalism and pragmatism. most of us acknowledge this, but no one would come to support an anti-reservation drive, if called for. ulta politicians usko bhi bhuna daalenge!
reservation khtm hona chiye sir all people are qcul gernl wale hr jage maat khaate h india me laaya iss liye gya thaaki develop ho but jisko millna chiye unko nhi mill rha 10 % jo abhi use ho rha wo khtm ho or 90% jo log h iss ke liye unko millna chiye nhi tho resvation kjtm kr do
Sir as of my knowledge Supreme court cannot amend any law, the power resides with the parliament of India. As i heard from a person that SC has directed the govt. to do so, in case it is true then why has the govt. filed a review petition as they can easily take it down in parliament while voting. Please tell me if i am wrong. Thank you.

sc has not amended the law but issued new directions in implementing the law..sc has right to interpret the constitution and statutory laws in light of basic structure of constitution...
Why Private Sector is More Efficient than Govt Sector...???? There is One Major Difference Between Two...That Might be the Reason that Private Sector is More Efficient...!!!!!!!
private sector utna efficient nahi, jitna public sector inefficient hai. lack of accountability and penal provisions against wastage of resources and precious time of people are the main reasons. RTI ki info is mostly issued on time..why? is it that hard to understand!
