Why was the provision of reservation included in the Indian Constitution? Who are the beneficiaries of this policy and how?


The Constitution framers included the provision of reservation to uplift historically oppressed and marginalised sections of society, who were denied respect and equality.

Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and OBCs are the beneficiaries of this policy.

Under this policy, a percentage of seats are reserved in the public sector units, Union and State Civil Services, Union and State departments and in all public and private educational institutions.
