Indian Government reserves 10% for economically backward upper castes in govt jobs

Monday, January 7, 2019

The Indian Central Government on January 7 approved a 10 percent reservation for economically backward upper castes in government jobs.

The benefit would be extended to those earning less than Rs 8 lakh per annum. A constitutional amendment bill would be moved in Parliament to this effect.

It was immediately unclear as to how the Centre plans to accommodate the 10 percent quota as the total reservation would now reach 60 percent.

The move comes just months ahead of the crucial Lok Sabha elections which are expected to be held in April-May.

Yes... Its Hidden Agenda. Why only for "Economically Backward UPPER? There is no economically backward LOWER? Already "upper" occupied most of the GOVT job & Powerfull position. Atleast the first generation educated lowers getting very less in reservation. They don''t want to give chance for Lower ever. Very Good. (Mr.Suresh I am also Half educated. By the way Whats your full education qualification?)

Doctors removed left side of the brain of a man and asked him to count to ten. He counted 2,4,6,8, 10. They put left back and removed right part. He counted 1,3,5,7,9. Then they removed whole brain. He screamed: Rafale mein ghotala hua hain, Choukidar Chor hai!!!

Actually it is one of the 2019 parliamentary election stunt, as BJP has entirely failure in all sectors, so nothing is going to be happened, just remember all the promises before 2014 parliamentary election, and I do condemn that choukidaar chor hai bulke choukidaar Maha chor hai......

Every religion has many divisions based on many factors. May be we do not know the factions and groups within the religions. Now the new reservation to be brought as law will provide job opportunities for financially weaker sections of the society! Till date most of the weaker sections based on religious castes and tribes have not been able to get proper support for their needs in life. When will the nation be able to provide employment for every individual in the nation? Do we have to start our own employment to earn a living in life? Protests and violence are becoming a regular show with the law and order being silent in the nation to make individuals choose to leave the states to find better living conditions for their families. Just make sure life without the required employment is not easy to live in any nation!

Only Merit to be considered. The economically backward in all castes of India will stay backward even after many centuries. The creamy layer takes all reservation benefits. This is a political gimmick against Indian constitution.
