The caste based reservation system was introduced for the fixed period of 10 years after Independence. The main objectives of the reservation were to uplift the lower strata of the society and give them a leveled field to compete so that they can have a proper representation in every field of the work.
But, even after 70 years of Independence, it has just become a political tool for securing a larger share of votes. Both the dominant parties of India, BJP and Congress have got a fair chance to scrap the reservation system, but none of them have been sincere and courageous enough to amend the reservation bill.
Furthermore, the reservation policy in the current demographics of society seems highly out-dated. The policy is based on 1931 census and since then, the system has not yet made an attempt to recollect the data and make attempts to amend the policy in favor of those who actually need it the most.
The need of the hour is to evaluate and reformulate the policy to favor the ones who need it. Education should never be the domain of the political parties. Since, the caste divisions are varied in the contemporary society, necessary changes should be made to make the reservation policy justiciable to the entire country.
