Abstract

The reservation quota allocated for the OBC has always been a polarising topic, one that has incited discussions on social equality, economic independence, and marginalization. While some groups argue that the Other Backward Classes have been sidelined throughout history and need to be compensated, the counter-argument made is that the pendulum has swung too far and the compensations outweigh the marginalization. This research paper aims to seek justification for the quota and assess if this reservation quota is proportional to the social inequalities that weigh against the OBC community. It will study the educational, economic, the social standpoint of the OBC as well as the technical nitty-gritties of the quota allocated. This paper has been inspired by the growing volatile discussions on said topic that have acted as a gateway to a range of other essential topics. As young citizens of an India at the precipice of social unrest, we feel that the need to analyze and assess our country's attempts at inclusivity is imperative. Moreover, we want this research to act as a base for our understanding of the OBC, allowing us to form independent beliefs and judgements and giving us the academic standpoint to make concrete arguments.
