RESERVATION- Justified Or Not?

 -Utkarsh Upadhyay
Reservation in our country is introduced earlier to uplift the social and economic status backward classes but now the Scenario is changed these backward classes now living a respectful and prosperous life. People of general castes sometimes faced problems in exam so they opposed this whole system of Reservation.
I am not Against the system of reservation but it sometime benefits the undeserving aspirants of reserved class in place of a student of general category.
In India, reservation is provided for historically backward and suppressed classes of Hindu society. These include the scheduled caste or SC, scheduled tribe or ST and other backward classes or OBC. The reservation in provided in the fields of education as lower cut-off marks for entry into educational institutes, reserving parliament or legislative assembly seats and reserving job vacancies.
The advantage of these reservations is that they allow these backward classes a chance at improving their lives and status in society and getting meaningful employment. They also get representation in various aspects of society and decision making, something that has been denied to them for a long time.
The disadvantage of the reservation is that it suppresses meritocracy, that is the availability of options to the most capable and deserving person. An example may be taken from the field of education. The top engineering colleges in India conduct an entrance test to admit students. However because of the reservation system, the reserved seats go to candidates who scored less than half the marks as compared to general candidates. This also means that the reserved candidates are less capable than their peers in the classroom and hence almost always play the role of second-class citizens.
