The move, predictably, has set off a storm, since by bringing the IITs and IIMs under the quota raj, the government could well be compromising the regime of intellectual meritocracy these institutions set out to establish.
The government's plan could mean the end of a dream for many of you -- of obtaining a degree from India's premier educational institutions.
For many others, it could also be the beginning of a dream -- an opportunity to join the hallowed ranks composed of IIT-IIM graduates.
Either way, tell us what you think by filling out the box alongside. We will collect all your views till midnight of April 26 and forward them to Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh.This is your best chance to make yourself heard, and to make a difference!

RESERVATion by its limiting nature cuts merit and if the government thinks by following a quota system it can provide leg-up to the socially disadvantaged then it is a bad idea and should be shot down.
Unfortunately populism is what guides our netas, for few votes they can play havoc with the lives of the Young.
On Monday while taking my final exam we were interrupted midway as union ppl from the Univ came to ask us to participate in the stir as BHU has already done.
I have heard of Mandal and have read how Delhi burnt during the stir, why do they want to repeat it ?
The IIMS and IITs are centres of higher learning, I have been slogging for past few months as I will be appearing in several management entrance tests in NOV, I do not know how many seats will be left for general quota ppl? As it is we have entrance exams, these test your proficiency.
Why dont they bring reservation in Cricket also, all ten players should come through quota system and one general, let us see how the country moves forward?
DR Manmohan Singh our PM has been associated with liberalisation and he is the best example of merit paying in the end, why is he taking a retrogade step?
As things stand in all state universities and institutions the reservation will come to 49.5%. IIT and IIMs have entrance tests, this gives a level playing field to all, with reservation a person with 1 mark can find a place in the merit , courtesy reservation. Through reservation we are creating another class that has privilege access to seats not on merit but quota system .
I wonder if any agency has evaluated if at all reservation has benifited the poor and backward classes? IN all probability since independence we have had this system, it was envisaged that with time reservation will be withdrawn, but it has been increasing since the last several year. It is proof that it has not worked, then why repeat the same mistakes.
Then there is backwardness in every caste and community which is only economic, if at all reservation should be given it should be in schools and there two a system of reward so that the genuine benefit.
RESRvation affects quality, our universities( where quota system already exist) are on the verge of collapse because nothing much is being done to enhance the academic quality, a system that gives equal opportunity to all should be encouraged. PM Sir please don't do this, u have been part of this system and been successful , reservation will debase education system, delhi school of economics is proud of you, we expect something better sir!

Thanks Aparna. And at a later stage I really intend to do something about it, may be not in a huge scale but at least can cover a small area. If for others I can set an example even in a very small scale, it would be a big achievement for me. My father was a school teacher, and I've learnt from him a lot.
