About the Workshop

The Reservation policy was brought forth by the first Justice Party Government during the last decades of the nineteenth century. The main aim behind the policy was to empower the downtrodden people in order to bring in a sense of belongingness. The resource of nature are common to everyone, but, when the economy, power, and influence takes the upper hand, people tend to be subjected and it causes a major fallback in society. The main objective of the reservation policy is to involve everyone in the functioning of the state without discrimination. Right from ancient times, a particular group has been dominated and oppressed, but the people cannot remain oppressed indefinitely as Article 14 of the Constitution entails fairness and equality to all. Though its been 75 years of Independence to date a section of society is being deprived of their basic rights, the reservation policy is an important initiative to uplift the aggrieved.

The Constitution lays down the principle of equality among equals, which is evident from Articles 15(4) and 16(4) wherein the constitution provides for a reservation to the socially and educationally backward sections of the society. The importance of the reservation policy in India has endowed the path of equality and it is further re-emphasized by various international instruments and covenants. The categorization of people to whom reservation must be given is ambiguous, causing perplexity in practical application, forgery to establish them under a particular identity to receive privilege is also a problem, being the reasons for which reservation policies are always in a debatable position. The reservation policy’s essence is to showcase equal opportunities for everyone to achieve equal success in a nation. This workshop will be useful to the Academicians, Research Scholars, and UG/PG Law Students and would serve the purpose of understanding the reservation policies of India to the best, its feasibility in society, and the problems that persist along with a solution-oriented approach.
