no.caste based reservation is not justifiable because you should be selected based on your merit,also this is some kind of racism against the opposite caste.

Then what is your solution? Do you mean to say then that all sorts of reservations should be removed. If that is the case then like the Maoist there would be so many groups coming up to fight the rich. India will break up. If the rich does not want to grab all the good things where will the poor then go? The poor cannot compete with the rich because the rich gets the all the good education. There are many people who are not getting two meals a day and how can they afford education to compete with the rich. If we say we are not concerned about the poor then the poor may even say we do not want to be part of India. And India will break up into pieces. Racism is bad, but I think we need to change the system so that without being racist even the poor will be taken care of.

I think it should not be based on caste or tribe. However I think it is important to have reservation now. But it should be based on the economic situation of the people. Those who have reached certain economic status should be removed from the reservation list. There are people where father and son are IAS, both getting through reservation. And the son of the son may also become IAS because she is getting the best educational system available in the country. However economy based reservation needs to be there for some more time because there are people who are really far far below in the economic ladder so they must be given reservation for some more time.
