OBC Quotas at IIM,IIT's

What is it with the HRD ministers and the IIT/IIM's ? After M.M.Joshi, Arjun Singh joins the farcical act with the proposal of 27% reservation for OBC's. In which planet do these ministers live? Heck, is this another pre-election stunt?

Here is the report from Rediff.


  • Can you imagine this happening in INDIA?

    Government of India has a online Grievance forum at http://darpg-grievance.nic.in/

    The government wants people to use this tool to highlight the problems they faced while dealing with Government officials or departments like Passport Office, Electricity board, BSNL/MTNL, Railways etc etc.

    I know many people will say that these things dont work in India, but this actually works as one of our colleague in CSC found. The guy i'm talking about lives in Faridabad. Couple of months back, the Faridabad Municipal corporation laid new roads in his area and the residents were very happy about it. But 2 weeks later, BSNL dugged up the newly laid roads to install new cables which annoyed all the residents including this guy. But it was only this guy who used the above listed grievance forum to highlight his concern. And to his surprise, BSNL and Municipal corporation of faridabad was served a showcause notice and the guy recieved a copy of the notice in one week. Government has asked the MC and BSNL about the goof up as its clear that both the governent departments were not in sync at all.

    So use this grievance forum and educate others who dont know about this facility. This way we can atleast raise our concerns instead of just talking about the 'System' in India.

    Well I'd say if it really works perhaps its the time to start using it as a mechanism to appeal against the YET AGAIN QUOTA SYSTEM in educational instituitions.

    Its for the betterment of people of india that we stand united against this move or, else at some stage perhaps sooner than later we'll find ourselves grappling with these insane laws.

    Looking forward to some co-operation.

  • If my son or my relatives son couldnt get into an institution by clearing all those exams..let's do something to ruin that system, that is the mentality of our Ministers.
    Atleast Terrorists dont specify any reservations to join them in India....:D
