CASTE-BASED RESERVATION IN INDIA: MEANS TO POLITICAL ENDS OR UPLIFTING THE UNDERPRIVILEGED
By Alisha Verma
Since the enforcement of the Constitution of India reservation has been an integral part of it. The intent of the constituent assembly was clear by the introduction of the scheme with a ten-year clause in it. It was added initially to uplift the less privileged class of society and now it has become a means to political advantage of parties. The people belonging to reserved class even let themselves used by the parties. It is manifest by the fact that after sixty-two years of the Constitution of India the reservation still exists in the Indian society not only this but also increasing with each passing year. It has been observed in last two decades that many casts have secured reservation for themselves, and the list of casts in the category is expanding day by day. Nationwide protest by Jaat and Gurjars of Rajasthan is known to everyone. The present paper is an analysis of the present format of the policy and how it has not been able to fulfil the purpose it was introduced for.
