The constitution guarantees equality to every person of the country, yet the reservation policy refutes this fundamental right in every way by providing caste based reservations in education as well as employment field.
Often, it is argued that all the caste based policies are divisive, anti-secular and anti-progressive. The government should provide help wherever it is needed, and by all means, everyone must make efforts to have an all-inclusive development of the country, but caste-based-reservation is not an apt solution to attain this goal. If at all, it can be ensured, it is through financial help and economic reservations.
Since reservation basically offers ‘privilege’ to one section of the society to others, it is but obvious that it cannot promote equality. Since, the section who gets benefited from reservation are essentially the creamy layer of the backward classes, who are, at times, economically far better than some of the forward communities, the clash between the reserved and unreserved categories is inevitable.
Furthermore, an argument is also made that reservation promotes casteism in the society because of its current form of application. Since the economically sound section of the creamy layer of backward classes take an unfair advantage, the clashes are bound to happen.
