Economic based reservation if implemented well can be very effective. If one generation gets the favor, the next generation will not need it.

    I personally feel that there should be no reservation. I would advocate for a good quality free education for all poor till Senior Secondary and then education loan to empower them for further studies based on merit.

    But if we want to really work on bridging the social gap, we can implement only economic based reservation in 20%. Rest 80% should be free of quota. If this only is implemented effectively, we can see the changes in few years.

    Our reservation system is more of eye wash and political stunt. On ground level, it is not working for what it is intent to work.

    At present reservation is available at more than one stage. Education, selection is government service and than in promotion. In these days reservation is enjoyed by financially sound peoples. It is the reason that cut point of reserve class is almost equal to general class.

    The reserved categories have another advantage too, where minimum age for job selection is concerned...

    If I am not mistaken, even at present those belonging to lowere caste but economically in a better position cannot enjoy quota as there is creamy layer system.

    I am really not sure if the creamy layer system is just there for certain poeple because I personally quite a few people who belong to backward classes but own substantial properties and income and still get reservation benefits.

    The creamy layer limit is so high that a person earning Rs 8 lacs per year is goo to take advantage of the facilities. And this has been increased from 6 to 8 lac in the last year itself. Now how many of you would believe it's fair enough?

    With regard to seats for educational institutions and jobs , as long as they have the required documents to show that they belong to a certain reserved category , they are entitled to it . But , when it is a case of direct financial benefit like for example getting a house site or financial assistance to build/renovate/repair a house and getting free water and electricity , they need to show that they come below the stipulated economic guidelines.

    That's the problem with India. Though the creamy layer concept is there to prevent misuse of quota system, as it is not properly implemented, many undeserving people take benefits of reservation system.
