Political aspiration to get reservation in private sector will kill meritocracy

Reservation in public sector is already incumbent in our Indian education system. The same process is trying to lay it's hands on private sector too. Instead of encouraging reservations, the main focus should be to improve quality in education and basic facilities for all students.

Reservation should never be caste or creed based because it might hinder the intellectual and overall growth of the reserved candidates. Reservation should be encouraged for disabled people lacking in physical abilities . From the current state of affairs, It is clear that political agenda is responsible for reservation in private sector.

This leads to the weakening of meritocracy which aims to produce educated or abled people for the positions of power , killing of meritocracy will reduce the intake of talented people and ultimately the future of the country is at stake. Meritocracy is a political philosophy holding that power should be vested in individuals almost exclusively based on ability and talent. Advancement in such a system is based on performance measured through examination and/or demonstrated achievement in the field where it is implemented. But the recent changes of involving reservation in private sector is hampering this private practice.

 Instead of providing reservations, efforts should be made to make the educational facilities accessible to all the sections of our Indian society. The people should be given the opportunities to work hard rather than being spoon fed so that they don’t become parasites for the country. Reservation is shaking the backbone of our country. Meritocracy should not be killed since it provides a proper procedure for recruiting deserving people. Although the concept has existed for centuries, the term "meritocracy" was first coined in the 1950s.It was used by British politician and sociologist Michael Young in his 1958 satirical essay "The Rise of the Meritocracy", which pictured the United Kingdom under the rule of a government favouring intelligence and aptitude (merit) above all else.

It is not feasible for the entire private sector. Sure, private Indian companies may fall victim and end up adopting reservation, but the foreign companies will never accept it. The bar for employment in foreign companies like Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, Schlumberger is pretty high in India, just as it is in other countries. The high productivity and per capita revenue of these companies is a direct consequence of this bar.

The moment reservation seeps in, and the 5-6 atrocious rounds of interviews generally conducted are no longer as tough, the quality of new hires will drastically dilute, and this will reflect directly on the team performance. If this continues, companies won't bother trying to fight the government, they will simply stop investing in India, and that is not something the government can afford, they surely will understand the problem and act upon it.
