New debate started by OBC quota clearance

Finally, Supreme Court of India cleared the way for 27% OBC quota in central and central funded institutes in India. Decision over this quota was pending in court since March, 2007 after many people objected this move and appealed in Supreme Court against this law including famous motivational book writer Shiv Khera. Though now five judge bench of Supreme Court has unanimously cleared this act of providing reservation to OBC, however, it has also put new restrictions on providing this reservation and started a new debate over reservation policies present in India.

Supreme Court has clearly said in its judgement that creamy lawyer must be excluded from getting benefits of this reservation Therefore, now children of MPs, MLAs, class 1 officer, rich people belonging to OBC will not qualify for this quota. Supreme Court has asked Indian government to come up with clear criteria of defining creamy lawyer before implementing this law and also define clearly people belonging to economically backward class. This is for the first time in the history of reservation policy when restrictions will be made on economical basis, a pending demand by many experts and people.

Court has also asked review of this policy after every five years and removes it in phased manner after objective is achieved. This ruling of Supreme Court will now start a new debate over various reservations continuing in India and should economically well people of these categories be allowed to get benefit of respective reservation benefits available to them or not. This is a small positive step taking by wise judges of Supreme Court of India, which can change the future of reservation policies in India. Soon reservations on economical grounds can become reality leaving behind reservations based on castes, which is the requirement of time.
