The Affirmative action you are talking about is no doubt very good. Reservation on the basis of financial status is really a good idea but wait a minute and think for a big picture considering the past of Indian society. The reservation on financial status is good for a country were the society is not pillared on the caste system. Ok! i will tell you more….
Suppose a SC/ST boy got financial aid on the reservation basis and went to an Indian collage and India being a discriminating country(on the basis of passed history) the professors of the collage discriminated the boy.So, naturally his education paused there. Thus, automatically he wasn’t capable for the merit list(there are many real life cases based upon the example i stated). SO, if there would be reservation automatically there will be eligibility and Professors will have to educate them because they cant help that.
Ironically yes, it might see to be preparing unskilled workers but only in few cases while “Many successful people and toppers were from the SC/ST and OBC groups in passed few decades. All because of the right to education and affirmative actions taken by our government.
