As we all know, from past many decades not a single university of india ever came under the badge of top 100 universities in the world. why this happened? Is something is wrong with our education system? Or is this our wrong policies that ruined our education system? many of universities/colleges in india like delhi university, IITs, IIMs and IISC holds the enough capability to be in top 10 universities of the world but something went wrong from past 70 years. If we looking on our education system you can easily find that things are getting worst with time. If a reserved candidate grabs  the seat of a deserving one who is way better then the reserved ones. A student from general category, if he wants to take admission in delhi university(DU) then he has to score minimum 90 to 95% marks in his 12 standard but at the same time if this student is from SC/ST category the he can easily got admitted at only 50 to 60% marks. In india 50% seats are always reserved for those candidates who are coming from low castes but in many states the percentage bar even touches the boundary of 70%.

 This reservation trend also follows up in job recruitment process. Many of the candidates who scored even -2.5 or zero easily got recruited for the posts of professors and lecturers in many government institutions.
How one can one think of making an institute “A” graded if the institute hires “C” graded reserved students and teachers instead of deserved ones.This is as same as that you want to being healthy but you tried to maintain your health by regularly consuming junk foods.
We are not against of any specific caste or something else but reservation simply kills the talent of our young india. Even supreme court of india already gives a judgement on this issue by saying that “In nation interest scrap quota in higher educations institutions”. Just imagine if reservation system from higher education will be removed then definitely India can easily lead the whole world .
