Merit V/s Quota * FICCI president Y K Modi on September 4, 2004: 'No where in the world is there reservation in the private sector'. * CII president Anand Mahindra on May 31, 2004: 'The concept of reservation without reference to merit could have a distorting effect on the operations of the pr...ivate sector'. * Ratan Tata: 'Though I do not want to comment on it (reservation), it is bad in some way, it will tend to divide the country into different groups.' “ While uplift of socially backward classes is important, merit is an important aspect and should not be compromised” * Assocham president K Sanghi on June 14, 2004: 'It will have a far reaching impact on the industry as it may completely destroy the meritocracy in such units and bring inefficiency'. * FICCI president Y K Modi on September 04, 2004: 'We oppose it as the move is against industrialisation and will lead to job reduction'. * NASSCOM president Kiran Karnik on May 31, 2004: 'It will completely destroy the meritocracy in the private sector'. * Pune-based Alfa Laval India's MD Satish Tondon on August 08, 2004: 'If I employ 1,000 staff, 5 per cent reservation would mean I have to recruit 50 people I may not need'. In the end we’d like to mention that the upliftment of socially backward classes is important, merit is an important aspect and should not be compromised.

Alternative solutions to the hike in quota: • The number of seats in premier institutes may be increased, but then the quality of education should not be hampered, to attain which, it will be necessary to increase the teaching faculty as well along with the infrastructure. • The un...availability of seats is not as big a problem to the SC/ST/OBC as their financial crunch is. Assistance may be provided in the forms of scholarships. • The expenditure on higher and technical education is 0.4% and 0.1% of GDP, respectively. This should be raised. • Progeny of those who have got a position through quota should be denied the same privilege. One 'quota-case' in every family is sufficient. • The misuse of the quota by the powerful and the rich should be taken care of. Proper investigations and checks must be undertaken by the ministers who so loudly advocate the reservation regime. • The level of primary and secondary education must be boosted. All the problems start from primary level itself, if a student does not have a strong base, then he cannot complete higher education successfully. • The government should make efforts to uplift backward classes by strengthening the educational base of these classes at the primary level. Caste does not define how intelligent a person is. Rather it is differences in resources and exposure. • The government should start some campaigns to ensure that students from all sections of society are encouraged to pursue studies atleast till 12th standard. • Reservations in premier institutes are of no use unless creamy layer of students is kept out of it.

Some statistics that highlight that Reservation Regime will lead nowhere: • The majority of quota students have failed to achieve even average performance: o At IIM-Lucknow in 2004-05, large number of quota students failed to clear PG prog-I o At GSVM Medical College, Kanpur,... 50%admitted under quota flunk this year,35% get grace marks. o 60% students fail to clear BSc exam,50% BCom and 40% BA under Allahabad University. • The government might be pushing for reservations for OBCs, but as things stand on the ground, even the 22.5% quota (SC/ST) in higher educations remains unfilled. • DATA collected by HRD Ministry for 2003-04 (latest figures available) show that the total number of students in higher educational institutes-a little over one crore-only 16% are SCs/ST. Which clearly means even with the existing quota, 6.5% of reserved seats are going vacant. • The ministry’s data on admission says: o In classes 1 to 5, as many as 27% of students are from SC/ST category. o In higher classes, heir number reduces – so that only 24% SC/ST students remain in class 5 to 8, and just 19.1% in class 12. o Of the 1489 seats in IIMs, 16.4% are filled up by SC/ST students. o In IITs,it is about 18%. • Even now more than 60% of the students, whose performance are discussed in the Student Review Committee meetings of IIT Delhi, belong to the reserved categories. o The cumulative grade point average of these students hovers in 5-6.5 range. o This despite the fact that a one year preparatory course in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics is conducted for them. • Moreover, its not just academics that suffer in the hands of reservation. We feel that government is dragging down the level of premier institutions instead of trying to bring them up to international levels. Continued in next comment....Read More

With the charactaristic reluctance of Indian companies in improvising a product already selling sell well and over a span of forty years, Royal Enfield still cannot afford not to usher practical and much needed changes in their motorcycles. At the same time, it doesn’t really have to solicit t...he the help of overseas specialists to direct the transformations. By just borrowing a page from motorcycle history, the company’s own R&D team can initiate the development. Following the trend started by Paul Dunstal and firms like Truxton who spearheaded the Cafe racer movement in England during the 60s, just refitting more efficient parts on production machines and thereby improving their all round characteristics, would yield much more desirable as well as economical results. Something currently done by Egli in Switzerland and Norman Hyde in England. A new crank, a higher compression piston with an aluminium cylinder as well as a lighter clutch and a rear sprocket with a couple of teeth knocked off would do wonders for the Enfield engine at minimal costs. Likewise the bike needs a stiff aluminium or chrome-moly steel sub frame at the back instead of the flimsy fender stays it comes fitted with, which were originally designed for a solo rider, and flex and sway every time the machine is pushed into a corner or bumpy roads. Throw in modern suspension at the front and back, and an adjustable, powerful headlamp and you have a serious contender for any modern competition. A reliable contact less ignition system would also be an added benefit, though I would prefer to retain the points in the interest of serviceability. The Enfields might be a mite crude and underpowered by today’s standards, nevertheless they are machines that had weathered 40 years of Indian roads and continue to do so today. .
