A STUDY OF ATTITUDE OF GRADUATE STUDENTS TOWARDS RESERVATION POLICY

GEETA DEVI

Abstract


The constitution of India provides provision of equal opportunities to every section of the society. Our ultimate aim is to have a casteless society. The provision of reservation in our constitution is intended to achieve this goal. Unfortunately, this remedy has been found to be utterly useless due to several drawbacks regarding its implementation which is the root cause of unrest among deserving few. The reservation policy generated the interest among students unions in India who wanted a drastic change in it. The main demand was not that the reservation in jobs and educational institutions for the weaker section should be scrapped but the criteria should be the economic basis. This issue started riots in various states including Delhi which claimed the score of lives. In the colleges of Delhi also the students held agitations and observed strikes in support of the demand for the reservation based on an economic level of the individuals.

Therefore, the investigator thought to conduct an empirical study to know the attitude of the graduate students towards reservation policy.
