Reservations in India

----- Forwarded Message ----- THE TRUTH of a lying Tina Dabi ...UPSC TOPPER ! (???) Grandfather (took benefits from reservation) : Worked in Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR) Father (took benefits from reservation) : Worked as an Engineer in Indian Telecom Service Mother (took benefits from reservation) : Worked as an Engineer in Indian Engineering Service And even Tina Dabi filled her IAS form from the SC Category. Tina Dabi scores of prelims Paper 1=96.66 , CUTOFF GEN=107.33 , OBC =106 ,SC=94 ....so officially she passed UPSC preliminary as a reserved category candidate ....used the quota .....Else she clearly couldn't have even cleared general cutoff 52.8 percent is what she scored in her mains ( Shows the quality of people nowdays opting for UPSC with that low percentage taking you to a topper Category) since she scored highest even though she was a clear disqualifier in the Prelims had she gone thru GEN quota All newspapers and media houses covered her stories and she herself said she wants abolition of reservation system and spoke abt having applied thru general category to all n sundry ! How can she secure number 1 position if she applied through SC category? STOP making her a HERO of the UPSC exam plz ! Now, the question arises, will Tina's children apply from General category??? The Answer is NO. Even they will also be eligible to avail the benefits of reservation. There is no limit on how many times a so called SC family can take reservation benefits. And when someone says that reservation system needs to be reviewed. Whole media and all MPs start targeting him. This is India for you.
