Reservation in India

The system of reservation existed in India even before independence. Post-independence the system of reservation was framed by the Constituent Assembly which was chaired by Dr. BR Ambedkar.

Reservations in India were introduced:

  • To rectify the past and historical injustice against the backward classes in India.
  • To ensure that equal representation can be seen from people belonging to all castes in the services under the state and centre.
  • To provide an equal platform for everyone irrespective of their caste.
  • To promote and advance the backward classes.
