It is widely misused.
Unless quota is reduced progressively it is unjustified.
Quota is meaningless if we cannot provide equal sholl education for all.
India is a starnge country indeed. We read in the news that most families spend a lot on education, even more than food. We have RTE because a lot of yougsters do not get education. Government is able to spend a lot on almost all other items but not education.

Yes, what they did is wrong but would you blame them fully for doing that? Why blame IIT which is trying to help students catch up in name of distinction between students when it begins very early in everyone’s life and they are getting advantage over many others for no fault of theirs.

What rubbish this is…
