OBC reservation in national colleges sign now

To: Honourable President of India, Honourable Chief Justice of India,
Honourable Prime Minister of India.

We are signing this petition to strongly detest the proposed reservation for OBC's in premier educational institutes.

We would like to call upon the office of Indian President/Prime Minister/ Chief Justice of India to act against the above declaration as:

1. Most of the reserved seats are filled by students belonging to families which have already benefitted from such a reservation earlier. This does not help the needy.

2. By reserving seats in institutes of higher education, government is shying away from it's responsibility of giving quality primary education to all which is the primary requirement to remove social inequality and thereby providing a level playing field.

3. Short sighted politicians use reservations for their political gains and create divisions between the communities. We view th current announcement by the govenment also as a political tool to gain votes but we should allow the future of our country to be jeapordized in petty vote-bank politics because these are institutes of excellence and centers of national pride which should be kept above personal interests.

4. Many students belonging to the so called 'upper castes' are poor and are unable to get decent education while most reserved seats are filled by students who had got a decent education earlier.

5. Many students who fill the reserved seats drop out because they have not been selected based on their merit. This means a precious seat has been wasted in a premier college.

6. Admission to premier institutes is highly competitive and a large number of meritous students are left out because they have been born in a general category family.

7. With time prestige of these premier institutes would degrade as the students would not be admitted based on their merit but on their castes. This is already evident from the skewed placement statistics of the IIT's and IIM's.

We feel that there should be no reservations based solely on the principles of caste and government should instead focus on providing quality primary education to all, instead if the government is keen on providing opportunity to the needy reservations should be based on economic criteria with the condition that the benefit would be given to only one generation per family so that there is tangible improvement at the grass-root levels of the society.

    Providing reservations is not the solution to the problem. Suggestions like the one of starting "Preparatory schools", made by an IITK alumunus should be considered.

    It is clearly logical not to have a 50\% reservation quota. I hope that the government realizes that sooner or later such a decision would create problems for the development of the nation itself!

    50\% is too much, there is already too much reservation
