Vandalism suspected. Should revert to older version.

Past student of IITs and IIMs should study the fact and find out the solution how to eradicate poverty from Indian subcontinent. Since poverty is caste related and caste is related to Religion all the students of IITs and IIMs should do the needful. vkvora 04:40, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Actually what is needful is currently under debate. In any way, we are here to build an encyclopedia and not debate on these issues. So please refrain from starting debates on Talk pages. -Ambuj Saxena (talk) 06:31, 25 May 2006 (UTC)


The present Article does not differentiate between SC and BC and refers SC and Backward Castes This may confuse a reader who is not conversant with Indian Social Scenario. Hence a NOPV tag has been added. The tag may be removed after the SC and BC Confusion has been sorted outDoctor Bruno 21:55, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

I have addressed all your concerns, and have gone ahead to remove the POV tag. — Ambuj Saxena (talk) 15:35, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

With reference to the line - [However, while a policy of quota system exists throughout the country for their reservation, a different scheme exists in IITs as they are Institutes of National Importance]. - I have a doubt. As per the latest orders only few institutes (These are the Homi Bhabha National Institute, Mumbai, and 10 of its constituent units; the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai; the North-Eastern Indira Gandhi Regional Institute of Health and Medical Science, Shillong; the National Brain Research Centre, Manesar, Gurgaon; the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research, Bangalore; the Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad; the Space Physics Laboratory, Thiruvananthapuram; and the Indian Institute of Remote Sensing,Dehra Dun.)are exempted from the purview of reservations. [1] IITs do not feature in that list (meaning there will be 27 % OBC Reservation there). Can you give more details about the different scheme (if it is really different) or is it the same scheme. I am not adding the NPOV tag for this minor issue. This is just for clarificationDoctor Bruno 16:16, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

With respect to the clarification, probably this link would be helpful. Although there would be reservations, the "elite" institutes will still be different. If you want, this can be mentioned in the article. — Ambuj Saxena (talk) 12:52, 28 August 2006 (UTC)
Is the percentage 27% different in these institutionsDoctor Bruno 01:13, 29 August 2006 (UTC)
the scheme followed in iits is given in the article; it is different.Iitmsriram 09:02, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

WRT "Historically,a certain caste in India called 'Brahmins' have dominated the Indian political,educational and social hierarchy by their cunningness and cruelty.Brahmins hate all other castes.They are popularly known as 'Tantrik' because of their crooked and cunning methods." very harsh & seems some idiot has added this particular line at the starting of the page.. Better if reverted to original version

For and against[edit]

Both sections violate Wikipedia's guidelines.. The "against" is original research, and whilst the "for" section is very biased. I have reverted an IP editors revision which had branded Brahmins as bigots. --Joshua Issac (talk) 21:03, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
