    Congress for SC/ST quota in private educational institutions

    To push its “inclusive” agenda ahead of the general elections, the Congress is proposing reservation for Scheduled Castes (SCs) and Scheduled Tribes (STs) in private educational institutions. At present, SC and ST reservation of 15 and 7.5 per cent, respectively, applies only to government and government-aided educational institutions. The big ticket proposal, which has been mooted for the party’s manifesto, was given shape after the party conducted consultations with several Dalit youths and students.

    Under Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi, there has been a renewed thrust on bringing Dalits back to the party fold. He had spoken about the need for Dalits to acquire “the escape velocity of Jupiter” to improve their lot and this proposal is one such step.

    Un-aided institutions such as the Indian School of Business, Hyderabad, private universities, degree colleges, engineering and medical colleges would fall under the ambit of private institutes.

    A Congressman, closely connected with the proposal, said, “After all, the government may not be directly funding them but it provides an enabling environment for such educational institutes. And, there has to be equal access to all communities to such institutes.”

    At present, the creamy layer within the SCs and STs is denied benefits of reservation. But the Congress proposal seeks to end this distinction.

    The party is in favour of enacting a law to translate this into a reality. The 93rd constitutional amendment had already paved the way for quotas in private educational institutions. The Congress wants to see that implemented.

    Ever since Rahul took charge, he has been focusing on issues concerning employment and skills development.

    Just as in 2004 and again in 2009, the party will be pushing for reservation in private sector jobs as well. The party is keen to bring in legislation to ensure there is reservation for these communities in private sector jobs also.

    Traditionally, Dalits had been a Congress vote bank, but, of late, they have drifted towards other parties. Despite the party’s assurances of “affirmative action” , the decline has been unabated.

    Not even for poor in private sector. The quota system has been doing damage in public sector for last 60 years, do not bring that in private sector in any form.

    If any quota needs to be given then it should be in education ONLY and NOT jobs.

    Also no quota after bachelor degree....leave masters without quota.

    I am a Brahmin, Brahmins have become a 21st century Minority and Dalit's in India because of this effing Quota system.

    In Hindus except Brahmins, almost all communities get one or the other kind of Quota. Rest of the Non-Hindu religions enjoy their own minority Quota.

    Being a Brahmin, I and my community also deserve some quota and I demand that Quota to be granted :sarcastic:

    If Congress promises Quota for Brahmins, I will vote for Congress and make sure that, my Brahmin community votes for Congress :sarcastic:

    Apnaa kaam bantaa, bhaad mein jaaye jantaa, isn't it? :sarcastic:

    The poor can and should have reservations in education system and may be in jobs of Public sector - although even in public sector 'Class' (and poor is a class) should not get preference over merit, if this nation wants to overcome menace of incompetence. However, in private sector there should not be any criteria but merit, else the industrial sector will fail to compete globally.

    If the economy of this nation improves, the woes of healthy food and good life (relative) for the poor will start diminishing automatically - and if reservation brings down the quality of our industrial sector, it will affect the whole nation adversely.

    What a stupid stupid move. Congress should leave the private sector alone. No one should dictate or have the right to say how my business is run!

    they already "F" ed up the state owned institutes for god sake please leave the private industries alone . this is one main reason why half of the intellectuals leaving the country

    congress is selling the private sector job quota dream, a repeat of the previous experience when it did not allow Dalits to move beyond government jobs and become partners in the market economy. An economically strong Dalit community can be a headache for the mainstream polity, this they understand better than the Dalits.

    economic inequality and social discrimination are important issues that need to be addressed, policies like reservation and quotas have not worked in the past...better education system and implementation of laws against dicrimination are the only soolution to the problem.

    To be efficient, it is desirable that enterprises be allowed to hire the best available talent, regardless of the caste or class the latter may belong to, with the selection being based only on the suitability of the candidate for the job based on his or her qualifications, experience, and potential. This is as true for the private sector as it is for the public sector. Job reservation, whether in the private or public sector, introduces additional market distortions and leads to sub-optimal outcomes, and is thus undesirable.

    the law is only a way to gain votes by politicians who themselves do not believe in it. It is appealing to promise something that is thought to better the condition of a big population. But at the same time the amount of votes gained from the same population cannot be overlooked. People tend to vote as they are promised a law that is thought to better their state, but what is planned to work in theory does not always work out in the practical sense.
