  • The Promise of 10% reservation would be Over and above the 50% for OBC , SC and ST Category.
  • The Government have to pass a Constitutional Amendment Bill  to push for 10% extra reservation.
  • This would benefit those classes that do not come under 50% quota .

Problem with the Quota for General Category Poor are -:

  • RSS ideology - BJP parent organisation the RSS always supported the reservation as per Economic Background not as per Caste.
  • Political Card - As the bill come 100 days before the election so this might question the intent of The 10% Quota for General Category Poor.
  • Reservation Motive - As the Reservation was introduced in the constitution to correct historical injustice faced by these Dalits , OBC , SC , ST .
  • Supreme Court Judgement - The 50% Limit was set by SC 1992 judgement in Indra Sawhey case .
  • Survey - According to various Data source and survey the Eligibility Criteria for Quota for General Category Poor is applicable to 90% of the Indias Population.
  • Poor but rich - The Tax provision of the Government demand Tax from the person who earn more than 2.75 lakh but now the Government is describing all the person whose family income is below 8 lakh as Economically weeker section and Providind Reservation , so if the person is Economically week then why the Government is charging Tax.

What Should be done ?

  • 1 time use - We should ensure that this reservation should be used only one time by a person i.e if he uses it in Colledge then he can't use it in job , this would increase the width of the beneficiary of reservation.
  • Elementary school - The IHDS shows among children aged 8-11 , 68% general categories can go to school , 56% in OBC , 45% in SC and 40% in ST this shows that their is a social inequality in Elementary level so we should direct our focus that side and reduce thinking about College Admissions and Job.

As to accomplish this 124 amendment in the Constitution to accomplish this which provides 10% reservation for Economically weaker section and add new clause to Article 15 and 16 of the Constitution.
