  1. Sir why the reservation exists for only backward caste ?Also there are some students in general category who are economically poor ..This is not fair .so reservation have to implemented based on economical status not on the basis of caste system.There are many students from backward caste who are economically very sound they can join in management quota by paying more than 2 crores,at the same time there are students from open category who can\’t afford even b cat seats ..Is this the justice provided my government of India to a open category student who are economically poor.At least u guys open ur eyes now and show some concern towards us.Is it a sin to born in economically poor upper caste.At least recognise us now provide justice to us.

  2. Sir if you want to implement quota EWS ok make it 5% and rip other quotas if you want to have good health care system, where general category go. Have the committed a crime by taking birth in general category

    There should not be any kind of reservation in PG.
    Once underprivileged student has got admission during graduation then all are equally capable.
    If government is not capable of upbringing them after so many years after independence then government is at fault not the non reservation students.
