Abstract: The theme of Reservation Policy usually triggers controversies and evokes passionate reactions and debates amongst both adherents and detractors. Irrespective of the context in which it is invoked, the philosophical content of the idea is essentially contestable and complex. The Reservation policy debate is not between persons who are Pro-equality and others who are Anti-equality . Both the most ardent advocates of Reservation Policy and its most vehement foes loudly proclaim their allegiance to the ideal of equality. The recent country wide debate, discussion and the proceedings in the Parliament, when the Women Reservation Bill was introduced, has once again brought the concept of reservation in Indian politics into limelight. The issue of reservation, however, is not an alien concept to the India Society. In fact, it has been in operation prior to our independence. newlineAfter so many years of its implementation, the reservation policy has reached a stage where both its supporters and critics are unhappy about it. The former are unhappy because it has not created a noticeable impact on the social and economic conditions of the Scheduled Castes (SCs) and Scheduled Tribes (STs), majority of whom still continue to be socially isolated, illiterate and poor. Its critics complain that in matters of employment, promotions and admissions, reservations have been stretched too far at the cost of merit and equity giving rise to frustration and alienation among the unreserved category. The direct outcome of this policy was supposed to be more equitable distribution of economic resources and a worthwhile sharing of power at different levels in the running of the state affairs. But in reality, what has actually happened is that this policy has been exploited by various pressure groups and vested interests within and outside the beneficiary castes and tribes. Extension of reservations to the Other Backward Classes (OBCs) and demand for reservation for the Dalit Christians, Muslims and women are a few examples of the opening up
