Explain the meaning of Protective Discrimination? How does it ensure socio-economic justice to the deprived section of society?


Protective Discrimination means that the State can make special provisions to protect the interest of the socially and economically backward classes.

The government can implement special schemes and measures so that they can get opportunity to occupy better socio-economic positions, at par with the persons of other castes and forge new social relations with others, irrespective of caste consideration.
