Comment: Census based on caste will further divide the society. Caste based census will lead to major manipulation of data and malpractice by political bigwigs according to their wish. Chance of caste leaders trying to increase their community population data through different means. It will again lead to demand in increase of quota for OBC's. What the people in General Category will get in future is not sure? They will be totally eradicated from the system in name of upliftment of other OBC's.

Comment: How long such anti-national step kept on taking place against people's interests. What are we going to achieve by these useless and hollow initiatives. We seemed to be going backwards to British pre-freedom era where such things used to happen. There is an immediate and serious need of establishing patriotism in people's awareness, the love for the motherland, the real Indian culture. The things which are happening today are making the confused people of India more disillusioned and dump. We are heading towards doom.

Comment: As long as caste is considered as a criteria in our country, we can forget about becoming a developed nation. we should be categorising purely based on economy to find how many people are below the poverty line and make necessary reservations for them alone. Caste should only rest with individuals and not become priority to tghe country. We should only concentrate on bringing up economiacally backward people to main streamline of society. I am sure everyone agrees that by virute of a person being born in upper class, gurantees him no extra economic privelege. He could be in a more pitiable state than a person from backward class. So caste is no subject to even be considered. Whatever opression backward community faced in earlier times, I am sure has been rectified by our constitution in these 60 years. Holding on to it even now will only make us look foolish in front of world community. Hope better sense prevails on politicians for whom caste is just a vote bank and nothing more than that.

Comment: Perhaps the purpose of this exercise (to include caste in census) is to estimate the vote bank. As per constitution, a person can follow any religion based on his or her belief but conversions are forced or done for personal benefits like multiple marriages. Castes, on the other hand are more rigid and assumed to be handed to you based on a your birth. But people do change that also to get admissions to prestigious colleges or institutions and when it comes to social standings, the same people want to flaunt their 'superior' caste. A census including caste serves the purpose of vote banks only and nothing else.

Comment: Once again the Congress government has shown its true colours of Pseudo-secularism. By doing this the government is orchestrating communal disharmony for petty gains. We condemn this wicked act and reiterate that we don't want our census based on caste, creed or religion. Don't tag us for we are not commodities. Again, it's a shame for a nation aspiring to be a 'Super Power'. The youth of the nation wants the Congress government (who believes in and proclaims to be secular) should even withdraw the "Religion/Caste" field from a new born's Birth Certificate in the interest of a true Secular state.

Comment: The caste based-census should be avoided, because it is practically not possible and useless too. Do we have any confirmed defination of each and every Caste,Sub-Caste and Tribes etc. It is very difficult for for some one to say about his/her Caste defination in our country, as majority of the total population is illeatarate/uneducated. I think this issue should be dropped, at least in the National level.

Comment: It is highly dangerous to do the caste based census. Specially in India where people are so sensitive that they don't care any human value when time comes and communal parties like VHP, BJP, RSS and SS take them for a ride easily. If caste based census is done, it will make clear the density of caste in any particular area and this is what these communal forces want. We must not support this in india. In fact there are much more dangerous hazards of this which can create big chaos and people will start feeling insecure and this may create a hatred and unstable society. I condemn this caste based census and thanks to rediff for raising this issue and providing us the chance to voice against it.

Comment: Caste system has no logical or rational basis in the present day society. It is sought to be kept alive by some politicians with vested interests, who wish to use caste groups as vote banks. Including caste column in the census will further promote caste -based politics, and caste based administration, besides sharpening the inter-caste divide in the society. Any affirmative action for helping the disadvantaged sections should be on economic basis, and the government should cease to officially recgnise the caste system.

Comment: I oppose Manmohan Singh government decision for counting census by 'caste' criterion because this issue will surely take our nation more than 50 yrs back and our next generation will surely effected, and hence INDIA can't be ever called as DEVELOPED nation.Our netas must stop their politics on 'CASTE'.

But CASTE based reservations not only hurt the feelings of the so called BC people who are perceived to be less talented as they belong to a lower caste but also unjustly deprive fair competition for the so called OC many of whom are also poor. Monsters in politics USE caste to divide people, suppress talent, create bitterness and in this confusion and melee enjoy the extreme wealth of the nation with their kith and kids irresepctive of caste! The Vedas the holiest of the Hindu religion itself states that there is no caste based on birth...then why are the political honchos after caste??? Because it feeds them and their families for another 25 generations to come!!!! Yes friends this nation in looted in the name of caste! Look at t Laloos, Paswans, Mulayams, Karunas, Mayawathis......... what r they doing ? supporting their caste!?...no but looting this nation's resources every minute even as u r reading this post!!!

Comment: In America there is no system in place today that forces people to remain separate or keeps one class subservient to another. If you were born the son of a street sweeper, but excelled, you could become a doctor or lawyer or some celebrity or entrepreneur - and at the same time you would be fully accepted by your peers. Not so in India. The Caste system freezes everyone in place. It is extremely difficult - almost impossible - for someone from the lowest Caste to rise in education and social status. A Dalit would never be allowed to marry into one of the higher castes and would never be accepted as an equal. And for a Dalit to make it into bollywood, medical school or opening a restaurant or become a priest in a temple or become a member of high society in India is very rare indeed. You can move from one class to another in America(e.g Obama became President of USA) You must not move from one caste to another in your life time in India(e.g. Ambedkar could not become Prime Minister of India)

Also, slavery in America and apartheid in South Africa were the dark realities that were fought against, and not 'accepted'. The current move to include 'caste' is a blatant act of opportunism by our 'vote-bank' politicians sitting in the parliament, and it deserves to be denounced by every Indian.

Comment: What Our great thinkers and philosophers right from Mahatma Budh, Guru Nanak, Sant Ravi Dass, Kabir, Guru Gobind Singh, Mahatma Gandhi and many other had achieved in removing the curse of caste in hundred of years, have been washed away by our modern rulers in 60 years. Division of society has been legalized in the name of social justice. Have we ever thought how much time is wasted by our babus in issuing millions of caste certificates?

Comment: Once again the Congress party is using its typical divide and rule policy. It is really shameful that the ruling party instead of taking steps to bring about social integration among Hindus is dividing them further for petty political gains. I am sure we will have a lot more caste-based divisive policies from the Grand Old Party once the caste numbers are out.

Does moanmohan singh and his team need the caste of a person to ensure the fundamental rights to the citizens of this country. This whole fuss will further lead to more week governments at centre and hence influence the decision making power of the govt. what happened in the past to Lallu, Mulayam, Mayawati, A Raja in the cases pending agianst them. In this era of collation govt ppl like them will always misuse the resources and for how long common man will suffer because of these ppl. In my opinion the term minority and caste should be abolished from our constitution itself in every context.

Comment: I am not against caste or caste or caste system as it has avirtues part but in census it has no business especially after Constitution.Caste is a personal recognition which comes not against the constitutional right of equality. Why are so propogation that it is taking place after 1931,so what.At that time there were no provisions of this constitution otherwise there could not have been caste based census. Census should be on basis of conversions and infiltrations which will expose the hidden agenda of nafarious elements to wipe out the native Indians by one divisive tactics or the other.

Comment: Hi, am a law graduate. I strongly belive that caste based any system is wrong, be it education, jobs, scholarships, reforming policies, quota, anything. Rather, all this facilities shoould be strictly on economical and infrastructural backwardness. Today, after all this years of freedom and liberalisation, people who were earliar backwardly treated in the society have developed a lot with the help of educational and economical help and reforming policies of the government. All the facilities were required by them in all this years, and was aptly provided. Through all this 60 years people, especially living in urban areas who were called and treated backward 2 generations back, have carried themselves in a very good position which is very much appreciable. These people who are well settled now donot need the facilities still been provided as they can carry themselves very well now. The main requirement now is to reform the tribal, rural and economically backward population. What is the need for a caste based census? Is it required to form governmental policies? if it is so, then the basic need is to do economical / income based census and form policies to bring the economically backward people in front and reform them, reform the tribal and rural population. Urban educated people donot think and actually donot need all the so called reformative policies for them as 60 years of reformation is enough. The polititions should grow up and understand the need of hour. I hate caste system. I am against any policies based on caste. What will the caste based census achive?? it will only strenthen the funtamentalists further . I AM AGAINST CASTE CENSUS!!!!!!!

Comment: In indian politics nothing works rationally.In the name of caste mandal commission was implemented in 90's,just to garner vote.Although mandal commission was implemented in 1930 and it was specifically mentioned that,benefit provided to groups on caste should be time framed and accordingly it has be done away.But the time factor issue was manipulated by politicians and never ever was there any census based on caste basis after 1930,to figure out the socio-economic condition of the groups to whom the caste based benefit was provided.As a result,to garner vote,OBC(other backward caste)group was created and it is still continuing.Based on socio-economic condition,irrespective of caste and creed,people should get benefit for upliftment.But now people like Lalu Yadav,Mulayamsingh Yadav are getting benefit based on caste,even though people like them do not deserve benefit under any circumstance.People those who are socio-economically well off,should be excluded from these facility,as many deserving can be availed this facility.So we can imagine how much valuable resources are invested on undeserving people.To stop these,we need to have socio-economic and caste based census, so that we get the information about the caste population details and their socio-economic condition.By this we will have person based socio-economic and caste census,which it has never been till date.We need to have caste based census.We have to stop this misuse by politicians for vote bank politics.INDEED I AM IN SUPPORT OF CASTE BASED CENSUS.

Comment: The cast system may have been needed and functioned in the years by-gone . but it is not only irrelevent now but highly detrimental to the socio-economic and culturalfabric of the country, causing further irrepairable damage to the unity and the integrity of the country. Therefore cast in any form of mention is a taboo. Let us shun cast and casteism in all it's dreaded forms.

The whole exercise is done to further caste based politics and fine tune caste based vote banks. The OBC satraps are hell bent on further dividing the country and are trying to milk their caste based constituencies to the maximum.These leaders have created such a dangerous situation that certain castes have resorted to extreme violence to be declared as backward.The moment the sops given to different castes and the reservation policy is abolished the entire demand for caste based census will automatically dissapear. It seems caste(read votes) is more important than the country to these leaders.

Comment: The inclusion of caste criteria in the census constitutes a blot on the Indian political think thank.It serves no useful purpose except for perpetuating a undefined and nefarious divide between people which is used by vested interest from time to time.Like all negative things be it abuses, violence, bullying, it is but one more tool for outlet of frustrations, petty politicking, social profiteering. Like abolition of slavery in USA which was certainly much more harsher form of social division, we need to abolish caste distinctions perhaps by a legal fiat.We need a statesman like Abraham Lincoln to take a firm and unwavering decision against social divisive factors. When some social evil seems to be dying a natural death we succumb to some opportunist sections blackmailing. Congress government should have put down its foot against inclusion of this criteria.

Comment: Dear All, Distinguishing people on the basis of religion, caste, creed, reservations, and languages is actually dividing the people of India by vested interest groups. If one wants to provide relief to the under privileged people of India then the only criteria to be used is economic conditions. People who are economic weak should benefit irrespective of their caste, religion etc. We do not have different types of tax rates for Hindus, Muslims, Christens and Sikhs. We all pay tax on the basis of income earned i.e. higher income groups pay high taxes and lower income groups pay low tax, similarly the benefits should flow more to the lower income groups and not on the basis of castes . This will ensure 1. Unity 2. National integrity 3. Peace 4. Love 5. Above all it will show the true performance of the Government what they have done for the welfare of the poor.

It would be a huge boost for all the people to change.. at least try to change. It would help the next generation of this generation's inter caste marriages. Come on, It s appreciating that the supreme court ruled in favour of living in together, on comparison to that ruling, this is a small step and a necessary one in that.

We do not need this anymore. More than 50 years have elapsed since independence and all communities have fairly progressed to decent levels. Now we should do away with cast systems / reservations. Am sure our fore fathers who framed the constitution did not have in mind to keep reservations forever. Let us move forward and do away with this evil of caste. Let there be only one caste - INDIAN. And let only PERFORMANCE be sole criteria for entrance to schools / colleges / jobs. Please remove these reservations on caste system. I strongly feel that in todays scenario, reservations on caste system denies deserving candidates good opportunities, which i feel is gross violation of ones fundamental right to equality / getting education / jobs. REMOVE THIS CASTE CENSUS. Enough is enough. Do away with this evil immediately.

Instead of that, let them declare a monetery limit (say below Rs 240,000 per annuum) as the criteria for belonging to Economically weaker sections (EWS)and give 26% reservation to this bloc, irrespective of any religion. The caveat is oce this person's income is out of this zone, he loses the right to reservations. similarly there should be a provision wherein "creamy layer" concept should be enforced strictly so that beneficiaries must not take this concession perpetually. In the absence of the above, you are only dividing the nation on caste and communal lines. The Ghost of VP Singh would be delighted to see such things happening!

So how is asking the caste? Except politicians no one else is interested. 5. The name caste itself starts hatred in my heart. 6.

Yes castism breaks the very heart of INDIA our elders established many years back when freedom from British was earned at a very high cost and sacrifice. 7. I want to remove even surname from my name it separates me from many of my friends, I like to be known as simple "PREM" and my caste"INDIAN". 8. It will help fight two main enemy of our progress- CORRUPTION & DIVISION. Yes, no one ever dare touch"UNITED INDIA" in any front. Due to castism we are divided on every front and NOT UNITED. 9.

We must stop this barbarism at the earliest. We must find out an answer to this menace.

Comment: The population of Backward classes cannot be an criterion for reservation. The reservation was started to help backward classes to come forward. But after 63 years of independence,the reservation has increased to large extent which indicate India is really moving backward..Its cpmplete failure of goverment to improve the condition of backward classe and doing caste based headcount goverment is proving his failure again

Comment: Caste based census is absolutely irrelevant for our country. We have seen in our country, there are more number of political parties cropping up very now and then which are caste/religion biased, being secular country if government gives importance to these details like the caste, there will be no end to such political parties who will always try to take advantage by grouping people in the name of caste and there will be always some issues like violent clashes between caste based parties, which will be politically motivated for cheap publicity. Stop this for now to create unbiased bureaucracy for once and i'm sure everyone will see a sea change in overall aspect. We need to transform ourselves, we are still sticking to age old plan which may have suited us just after independence or may be 20-30 year back. Details that matters should be collected in census. Annual income of the family, number of literates in the family, number of children per family etc.,

We say ourselves as Indian, but when it comes to respect your fellow country men we put regionalism, caste etc. into that. The Britishers took advantage of this and ruled us for 400 years.

Comment: I AM NOT AGAINST DOING A CENSUS WITH CASTE AS A PARAMETER This campaign by rediff.com is ill conceived. Rediff.com should be neutral in such complex issues. For example in Kerala the upper caste Nairs opopose the caste census. The OBC ezhavas accuse this of being out of fear of them getting exposed (There is a feeling among non nair Hindus that the Nairs who comprise of 12% of population occupies 60% of all beauraucratic positions in Kerala. . The stand of NSS is that authenticity of the claim of just 12% Nairs in Kerala is questionable since there has been no census of caste since 1931. At the same time they are against a count - since the actual number is feared to be even less by NSS) Hence the opposition to caste census is an agenda for nairs , while for many other castes it is a ncessity to justify the discrimination of non Nairs in the officialdom. rediff.com should not take sides with both parties in such complex issues. I am a hourly /daily reader of rediff.com and am shocked to see such a campaign run by rediff.com Do not get yourself branded as an upper caste elitist site. Report , take views, but for heavens sake do not carry out one-sided campaigns.

Comment: Yes, Caste was authorised by Sri Krishna in Bhagavadgita 5000 years ago. "Catur varnya maya sristam, guna karama vibhagasha.....", He says "These 4 caste i created according to guna(the modes of nature like mode of goodness, passion, and ignorance) and karma (the work). He never approved these caste system of bogus present caste system. Were they follow caste by birth, brahmin son claiming to be a brahmin because he has taken birth to brahmin father, or the sudra sons claiming they are sudras (SC/ST) becuase his father was sudra and harping over to get reservation, and in between these two people others harping to get into OBC to get reservation. This has become a mockery in our so called civilized democratical system. Even Dr. Ambedkar passed the resolution of reservation for 10 years. But these so called politicians for their vote bank claiming to be secular harp over this issue. Negros in South Africa, in America never harped on this issue of getting reservations, but due to their hard work we are now seeing the negro president of America. Just by reservation you can't uplift a person. if so then these people are in hallucination. If any person concerned about the upliftment of the poor people then the reservation has to be on the economical status of a person. Every penny account has be their of each individual. Yes these thoughts are dificult. But a sane man has to work or take atleast one step towards the nation building process. We hope in this way both our executive and political people have failed. But let the other organ of our country - Judicial doesn't get trapped into this vicious cycle of caste system. The true example of Ashwathama (Drona's son) been banised to forest by Lord Krishna for not following his brahminical qualities was the marvellous example set up the Lord Krishna himself. So unlike the unqualified person been upgraded to the status of an executive will definetely divide our society in the name of caste. There will be no unity among the people in the name of caste. Then where you an uphold the preamble of our country. Unity in diversity....???? any sober man has to think on these aspect if he is a true lover of his country and save it.

Comment: "Caste, community or religion" should not be a criteria for selection to any post or admission to any educational institution etc. rather it should must be only on the basis of merit. Right of equality should be available to all. The purpose of caste based census is to decide reservation in the ratio of increase in the population of certain classes is. This purpose is also not desirable. If the Governemnt is really serious about welfare of under privileged people, let the whole Reservation System be only on the basis of FINANCIAL STATUS. Generally it is found that richer people of lower castes gets preference in jobs etc. with the help of RESERVATION and Meritorious but poor people of upper classes are denied of the oppurtunity. IT IS A MATTER of SHAME FOR OUR SO CALLED LEADERS.

Comment: Cast census is based on theory that population of SC/ST and OBC caste has increased, then why does not they also do take care the population of non SC/ST or non-OBC which is so-called General category before taking decision?It is also indeed require to not to encourage people to increase their caste population.It is a shame for indian govt that they do not consider economic level but the caste for resrvation.now if census starts counting, people will run for prducing more and more people in their caste fo hoping high percentae of reservation. Ofcourse a required reservation needs to be retained and more options for study, basic infrastructure is need to be brought for OBC and SC/ST. but it does not mean that people from other caste shall be discriminated by using caste census

Comment: "Caste" in the present context, in my opinion, is more than just a millennia old social hangover. The whole purpose of this clamour by politicians has been due to the "job" angle. The fruits of liberalization & globalisation has not reached large parts of the country, including urban centres. Even now education in a govt institution and a government job is looked upon as a road to salvation in many areas. So politicians are playing on this insecurity about government jobs & education in the minds of many that they would be deprived of the same if their "caste" is not revealed in the census. This is a systemic failure as large parts of the country still look upon government intervention in their daily lives as a way of their upliftment.

Comment: The constitution of India applies equally to all citizens of India, irrespective of whether they belong to any political party or are common citizens without political inclination. One of the avowed aims of our Constitution is abolition of the caste system. How can the Government expect the common man to practice equality of castes while it practices discrimination based on caste in all its forms be it in education, employment or any other scheme of social development? We are duty bound to keep our future generations free of caste prejudice. As a first step towards nondiscrimination, the Government of India and all State Governments should give up enumeration based on caste. I am against the caste census.

Comment: It is most unfortunate that India is officially trying to revive caste system. Ours is a proclaimed secular state, beyond religion, caste and creed. Caste system was based on profession. Manu brought it probably as the call of the day then. We curse him, burn Manusmriti! Ours is a laughing stuff, too miserable. Only for political milage, we turn to it. Dr Ambedkar was against reservations but who cared then. A via media was let us have reservation caste based for 10 years, and now more than 62 years are over and we are adding castes after castes for obvious reasons. Remeber in SCs a single caste is domination and so also in OBCs. The real STs hardly get any benefit of reservation but we convert others as STs. We are speedily heading toward dark age. I am absolutely against caste census.

If our constitution does not discriminate on grounds of race, religion, casre or creed, then why this question is being asked by government be it a application for job,ration card, voter id, passport etc. Everytime this question is asked it sows the seed of communalism in our mind.I believe that if this question of caste or religion is erased from all types of "forms".....our most of the communal and social problem will dye their own death within few years. I strongly protest such question in every walk of life

Comment: I am of the view that caste should be added in census. Be it in education, employment, and elsewhere caste has to be mentioned and moreover it can be easy for political parties to field caste based candidates, I don't think caste should be excluded. This is how people are getting exploited. When we talk about equality caste should be removed from everywhere (education & job). Let everywhere decision be based on merit. Until then for every census caste should be included.

Comment: Caste, alas, is a demon that refuses to go away, and remains perhaps the single biggest hurdle to the evolution of India as one nation, one people.How does census without taking head count of caste based division help in this notion.Census with caste count will clearly explain the cheap and uneducated mindedness of the many(not all but majority) forward caste people since the discrimination still continues, as till today their has been a very less improvement in lives of lower caste people, the relative gap between them and forward caste still persists equally as it was in 1931(First caste census). Hence to eradicate the caste discrimination first our minds has to be cleaned properly and let everyone accept from their mind and soul that all are equal in this world.

Now there should be cut throat competition to reproduce in order to corner higher % of nation's resources.

Comment: The is an iota of truth in tracking reality of caste in census,especially if this was not a government excercise and an excercise of any backward forum to genuinely find the figures it was OK.But with political parties known to misuse all possible information so that election become mathematically skewed and unfair,mention of caste in census will be counterproductive.With so much ambiguity creeping in an imperfect subjective data collection project any calculation based on it will discriminate the most marginalised of communities,the Dalits.The factor of imperfect governance has to be taken into account.The government presupposses that it is a perfect system in action.This is not true because it is the economic order which is blurring the caste divide but simultaneously increasing the rich -poor divide.And majority of the Dalits are near poor.Had congress governance been a perfect system caste would have been eradicated long time back and not necessitating its mention in the census.With everyone been given equal right in the country,mention of caste in census is unconstitutional and discriminatory against the upper castes especially that there are various justifiable schemes favouring the Dalits rightly.Census is there to see the impact of governance.If caste is mentioned after 63 years of independance ,it amounts to admittance of bad governance by the ruling coalition.

How can we change the consitution when a Judiciary is riged with Caste based system. Will a judge promoted on caste basis give a better verdict than a qualified professional? We wish to provide the necessary support to all people of India below a specified Income level irrespective of any caste, religion or sex. This is equality. We have not gone after British to rule them because they ruled us for 200 years. People just get caste certificates to exploit the legal system. The actual needy suffer and the creamy layer with caste certificate exploit the system fully. Our census should be people with their income level. no. of people below poverty line. no of people bewteen 1000 to 10000 p.a. income no. of people between 10001 to 50000 p.a. income no. of people between 50001 to 200000 p.a. income no. of people between 200001 to 500000 p.a. income no. of people between 500001 and above income It should be further sub-divided into age groups 1 to 14 yrs = no income group 14 to 21 yrs 21 and above This will give a clear picture of Indian economy. Can the government or any organisation confirm that all people below poverty line are from reserved class only. I am an open category student with my father earning x amount of money. I have 90% marks in my exams. Suppose a reserved category student with 50% marks and his father earning x+Y amount of money gets preferential addmission to education, what is right to equality in the constitution stand for? Is it proven scientifically that all reserved category people which at present is caste based, have more knowledge, less money, are more brilliant then open category student.

Family that makes 20,000 in a year to families that make crores in a year. Why can't facilities be made available based on that? How can one be responsible for the caste he is born into? It is also triggering lot of conversions as converted christians get more benefits than the so called FCs. If you want India to be a Nation with genuine talent stop advocating caste based classifications.

We are still a very young nation of only 63 years which is a very small period in the history when compared to various erstwhile empires which have lasted hundreds of years. If our politicians go on playing such dirty tricks for their mere survival, the very foundation of India as a nation can be rocked and it is quite likely that a few generations down the line, India may exist only in the pages of history books.

Comment: Caste-based census is a blow and threat to the India's beauty of unity in diversity. Many of the responsible ministers like P. Chidambaram were against it but it was obviously intended to get the crucial support of the champions of the game of caste politics to pass various bills, run the parliament smoothly and keep the government stabilized. Caste-based reservations are creating serious rift and acrimony among different castes as observed in the past. So, this poses a great danger to the unity and progress of the country. It is estimated that the highly ambitious and mammoth task would take at least 5 years to cover each and every citizen of India's 120 crore population residing even in the remotest corners of the country. The census will lose its purpose if the attempt fails to cover every citizen. And, when the final result comes, millions of people would die and millions of babies be born in those five years. Lakhs of inter-caste marriages would also take place in five years to give effect to change in castes. Analysis of castes from the collected data would take a few months more. So, it would be meaningless and technically incorrect if the government and the courts try to provide reservations on the basis of five-year old data. Therefore, argument of providing reservations on the basis of data received from caste-based census doesn't hold ground. Supporters of caste-based census clearly have different motive. Moreover, those already covered by the census officials would have to be revisited to get their castes. We may also remember that many belonging to lower castes hesitate to disclose it publicly, especially before their children to prevent them from suffering from inferiority complex. So, if they don't disclose their castes correctly, it would add more to the incorrect data.

Comment: Even though I heartily approve of this initiative taken by rediff, I m not sure how much impact it will have on what has already been planned & is ready to be implemented (about caste being the criterion for the current census). This so-called 'caste' hurdle will perhaps always remain in our country coz it is so ingrained in our minds. The whole nation is so neck-deep in this system that it is hard to imagine someone not trying to gain some leverage based on caste. I belong to a caste that is considered one of the other backward castes. If I say I dont believe in caste system, and would feel better if it did not exist anymore, I have no idea how many people would actually agree with me. Still, coz I dream of a day when I will not be denied something just because I belong to a lower caste, I agree to join this initiative. But, I also believe that this hindrance to the development of the society and the nation is here to stay, coz this system is in the minds of people, and those in the govt are one of us and they represent us. What they do is actually a reflection of the systems that our society follow. So, I think instead of opposing the govt, we should ourselves learn to speculate on this issue. Unless the people try n shake this system away from the society, there will be no respite from this flawed system. ************ Note:- Can anyone tell me if it is one thing to abolish differentiation based on caste and another to boycott a census to count the number of people belonging to respective castes in our country??

Comment: The more we want to forget the caste differences, the more government wants to remind us that we are not equal. The problem is the Divide and Rule policy being used by every political party. And the best way to implement is by knowing how many people are their of each caste. Also the misuse of reservation will continue without any change. Lastly, India has already suffered due to partition on religious lines, let's not prepare a case for caste based division also.

In last 63 years of independence, billions of rupees have been digested by deferent governments (mostly congress lead) in the name of social uplift and countries growth system has been curtailed seriously by enforcing reservation, totally on caste based policies....and it is pity that we follow the caste data collected in 1931. It is a bitter truth that in India, we can't ignore our caste and community system coming on from decades. So late, but at least we awaked to understand the need of caste based census !!..and I am sure it will do the wonder, in removing the mask from the faces of pro-reservationists. What is the pros and cons of this caste based census, really beneficial to the poor or not, surely the time will tell you rediff !! The concept of reservation is like committing another wrong to negate the first one. In fact the last 60 year records should be seen and it can be easily made out that those who have benefited once are the only few to enjoy all of it again and again. It is their next generation who is to suffer with the mockery of such fraudulent competitions. Enjoying the fruits of reservation, they have abundant resources along with the special treatment and this makes their life much simpler while others with all effort cannot be there as there is no space available to them because of their birth in upper caste family. Even if the reservation is to be given, it should be once for a family .. How come the next generation again enjoys the benefits of being underprivileged just by caste? Giving reservation again and again, will be too much of injustice in this country of meager resources surely depriving the people who really deserve it .

Unless You know which caste and sect is at what state as for as numbers are concerned, how will you make policy decisions. Also, how shall you come to know the status of policy initiatives taken earlier. Muslims community is abetting their fraternity to increase thei population without adhereing to family planning, a real danger is hidden there. There are lot of things which can not be mentioned here. But, it is extremely important to know the state of different castes. How come this happen that for the benefit of taking reservations you never hesitate in disclosing your castes and here you say it gives birth to agony and inequality. In fact given a chance most of forward castes would turn into backward ones for reservation benefits.

Comment: There should be only two castes one is the rich and the other is the poor. Caste Census means keeping alive the reservation policy which still shows India in poor limelight even though we are projecting ourselves to be a developing economy in the next century. It is foolish to imagine that 60 years of reservation has not uplifted the sections of society for which it was meant. Two generations have benefitted from these reservations and now this policy should be replaced with economic criteria. Time is ripe for converting this reservation policy into a broadbased reservation policy based on economic criteria and family size(ie a family with two children). Economic status of an individual or his family should be the only sole criteria for giving reservation so that the whole society is benefitted. In today's world, every community has poor and rich people alike due to the unforeseen terrorism, global warming and current financial crisis. Reservation policy, therefore should be extended to all weaker sections of society irrespective of religion and caste. Reservation policy exposes the weak fabric of our society inspite of projecting India as an emerging economy with all its wasteful baggages. Reservation policy should be stopped so as to foster a new awakening and unity in Hindu Society which is still largely divided on caste lines.The British divided us into India, Pakistan, Afghanistan & Bangladesh. If we are going to be again divided ourselves who will be in charge of India. May be the British or Taliban or China or USA????????????? Our politicians should have a vision for our country for the next 100 years. No government will last on caste lines. Indians fought the British irrespective of religion and caste to get freedom. Now why are we not getting wiser and pushing ourselves into a total disaster? India needs a strong leader like Indira Gandhi to tackle issues like reservation, foreign policy and population policy. The current political establishment under the able leadership of Mr. Manmohan Singh has the ability to take such decisions but are shying away from such issues due to lack of willpower & vision among the Congressmen. This is not the Congress which was established by Gandhiji, Nehru, Sardar Vallabhai Patel & Indira Gandhi. As we go back to history, it was because of their strong decision making and vision we still remember them as our leaders and which saved our country from further disaster. The current leadership should learn their lessons from these leaders how they saved the people during partition from hatred and violence. Unless the current leadership at the centre doesn't take a strong step against the reservation policy and take bold decisions in the larger interests of the society, the Indian nation which has survived for 60 years despite the world economic crisis, terrorism and communal hatred spewed from time to time by its leaders we will be engulfed by a society brewing with hatred among ourselves and ultimately taking the toll on the country's establishment which may be too late for everyone to save. Not only that, future political establishments will have to follow the same policy if no decision is taken now to change the policy as it will be too late. It will ultimately create hatred and create more divisions in a fragile society like ours. A country free of caste, poverty & reservation should be our goal. Reservation was a temporary measure considering the circumstances prevailing at that point of time. It was not meant for forever. As I said atleast two generations have already benefitted which is enough for any individual or society to come up. In an exam, if a student fails once he is given a second and third opportunity to write that exam so that he passes in the second or third attempt and create a future for him through his efforts. This is how the policy works and it is not forever. Government should give education especially higher education available to all sections of society and generate employment. Government policy should generate employment and not encourage reservation policies.

Comment: How long we will be under this caste system? Its a known fact to all educated people of India that politicians use this caste system for their advantage. They are the ones who don't want this caste system to go. They see this as a vote bank... divide and rule. The British did this to us, now these politicians are doing it. There was apartheid in U.S too. But, see how they are eliminating it, they are not going in for reservations or cast based census. They have implemented such a strong civil law that no one dares to discriminate. The result... a black U.S president. Will these Indian politicians go the same way... never. They never come up with proper solutions to actual problems. Will there be any law like China to control the ever increasing population of India? No, never... because this may affect the vote bank. Will these politicians ever stop thinking about themselves or their party and go beyond that to become true leaders? Will they ever prioritise the country over their vote bank? No, never...

Comment: Caste factor in the census is a demand of vested interests seeking to have separate reservation quotas on the basis of caste. Reservations was intended only for a short term of 10 years with some flexibility to extend it. Now, it has become a problem in itself. The government should strive to provide unlimited opportunities to everyone in the society so that there is absolutely no need for any kind of reservation. Reservations are meant only to handle a situation of shortage. If we can achieve this, there will be no demand for caste identification. This is the best way forward for the Indian society.

Comment: There should be only two castes one is the rich and the other is the poor. Caste Census means keeping alive the reservation policy which still shows India in poor limelight even though we are projecting ourselves to be a developing economy in the next century. It is foolish to imagine that 60 years of reservation has not uplifted the society for which it was meant. Two generations have benefitted from these reservations and now this policy should be replaced with economic criteria. Time is ripe for converting this reservation policy into a broadbased reservation policy based on economic criteria and family size(ie a family with two children). Economic status of an individual or his family should be the only sole criteria for giving reservation so that the whole society is benefitted. In today's world, every community has poor and rich people due to the unforeseen global warming and current financial crisis. Reservation policy, therefore should be extended to all weaker sections of society irrespective of religion and caste. Reservation policy exposes the weak fabric of our society inspite of projecting India as an emerging economy with all its wasteful baggages. Reservation policy should be stopped so as to foster a new awakening and unity in Hindu Society which is still largely divided on caste lines.The British divided us into India, Pakistan, Afghanistan & Bangladesh. If we are going to be again divided ourselves who will be in charge of India. May be the British or Taliban or China or USA????????????? Our politicians should have a vision for our country for the next 100 years. No government will last on caste lines. Indians fought the British irrespective of religion and caste to get freedom. Now why are we not getting wiser and pushing ourselves into a total disaster? India needs a strong leader like Indira Gandhi to tackle issues like reservation, foreign policy and population policy. The current political establishment under the able leadership of Mr. Manmohan Singh has the ability to take such decisions but are shying away from such issues due to lack of willpower & vision among the Congressmen. This is not the Congress which was established by Gandhiji, Nehru, Sardar Vallabhai Patel & Indira Gandhi. As we go back to history, it was because of their strong decision making and vision we still remember them as our leaders and which saved our country from further disaster. The current leadership should learn their lessons from these leaders how they saved the people during partition from hatred and violence. Unless the current leadership at the centre doesn't take a strong step against the reservation policy and take bold decisions in the larger interests of the society and the Indian nation which has survived for 60 years despite the world economic crisis and communal hatred spewed from time to time by its leaders we will be engulfed by a society brewing with hatred among ourselves and ultimately taking the toll on the country's establishment which may be too late for everyone to save. Not only that, future political establishments will have to follow the same policy if no decision is taken now to change the policy as it will be too late. It will ultimately create hatred and create more divisions in a fragile society like ours. A country free of caste, poverty & reservation should be our goal. Reservation was a temporary measure considering the circumstances prevailing at that point of time. It was not meant for forever. As I said atleast two generations have already benefitted which is enough for any individual or society to come up. In an exam, if a student fails once he is given a second and third opportunity to write that exam so that he passes in the second or third attempt and create a future for him through his efforts. This is how the policy works and it is not forever. Government should give education especially higher education available to all sections of society and generate employment. Government policy should generate employment and not encourage reservation policies.

Comment: The country is already divivided on language and religion bssis. We have seen the consequences of this narrow thinking of the political parties for gaining political mileage for comimng or remamaining in power. The census on caste basis may be the last straw on the back of the camel for breaking its back which may not be treatable by any means. One thing should clear to all the Indians that the political leaders who are clamouring for this additional information will never be able to come to power on caste based politics. But they will surely divide the country on caste basis. The Gevernment should look into the nefarious designs of such oppurtunist politicians and defeat their designs. In case the Government hasa entered into any deal with these politicians for garnering their support for the Women Reservation Bill in the parliament, it is another thing for this compromise,

Comment: Caste is a virtual division like religions sharing their own customs, traditions and rituals. Religions are based on non existing gods to loot people and divide. When one is weak, one dominates , discriminates or expolits. Instead of fighting against caste , fight for equal opportunities, and social justice. Evey human being irrepective of caste, religion and gender needs equal opportunity and respect in a nation which our governance and system supposed to be provided is being deprived through corrupted and bad politicians with nepotism based bureaucracy, judiciary and police network. Castes were formed based on trades and professions some 3000 years ago and evolved into some customs, traditions and rituals. Those castes need to change with time and are being oppressed on name of unity and religions. Castes were not a problem when india was occupied and ruled till we get independence. It is that caste system which preserved customs and traditions inspite of foreign rule from Mughals, Behmanis, Sultanates, Pheonicians, Greece and Europeans including britishers. When these many years of suppression could not pluck caste system, how do you think any government can suppress and ignore it. Caste is a reality and indians respect and follow it. Anyone trying to fight against caste system will burn in that fire.

But unknowingly every common man is a victim of the system .

Comment: In ancient times Indian were far rich in tradition, culture, mathematics, astrophysics, medical science and so on. But if we look into the medieval history of our national socio-economical existence, then it is understood how the cast phenomena has gradually deteriorated the inherent values and progress of the nation from inside out. The inclusive atrocities are silently accumulating inside the civilization as a whole, which ultimately leading us towards the debasement of national integrity and simultaneously supporting the subjugation of a greater human being. This is the only phenomenon which destroyed the transparent village culture and created the differentiation in people's mind. The peaceful coexistence of human life and improvement can never occur, unless we rescue these differentiating mind and behavior.

Comment: Caste system is to be abolished. All seats in various streams of eduction should be strictly based on merit. I find that the backward caste people with minimum pass percentage gets seat for almost all the streams available whereas the ones with high percentage are unable to get a seat. Thus a person who is most eligibile to get the seat will not and the person who is not eligile blocks the opportunity of others. The backward caste had harrowing experience in the past for which Government has given them various opportunities and they have come up in life now and lead a better life than upper caste people but still continue to take all the benefits that Government is giving. This should be stopped and the benefits should be given only to those who are in need of it and not based on caste. When I was studying in 10th standard everybody in the class had to pay examination fee except for children who belong to SC/ST community. All the studens who paid the fees were from low / middle class family. There was a girl who didn't pay the fee because she was SC/ST. In reality her parents had constructed a very big house in a posh locality with many houses in the same building given on rent. This clearly shows that the concession in fee was not at all required for her. This incident is about 20 years back. I am sure in this last 20 years SC/ST people like the ones referred above would be earned much more and are still availing all the benefits provided to them. I request the authorities not to consider education, job opportunities etc on basis on caste. It should be only on merit basis.

Actually, it is also a way to divide the Hindu Society since this is inargubally a touchy point for many but then doing a Census is not the solution.

But if we follow what is being proposed by today's politicians to attract vote bank is simply creating another sectorial politics that will put Upper caste people in same situation what backward people are today. The motive should be to bring these people up by doing development in those areas and educating them and extending opportunities to grow. Reservations creates an imbalance that ensures that people who are not capable enough to lead reach the top and hence create the chaos. We as a society can't not grow with weak leaders. Please use common sense to integrate everyone together not break us.

So what has Government to do with this and how can they abolish it. 4.If the intention of this census is to study what benefits , progress the downtrodden caste have made in education , employment , etc , then the reasons may be good . 5. I have a sneaking doubt that the opposition may be coming from the upper caste people . 6. To abolish caste system , the present education system is useless . So called highly educated people are found to be most caste conscious . The change has to come from within and not outside .

Caste based politics results in the election of incompetent and venal leaders. Caste based identities do nothing except promote caste loyalties to the detriment of nation building.

Comment: This caste has always been the bane of our country. We have come a full circle, where now so called "upper castes" want to become "lower castes", and there is such a clamour for OBC or SC/ST status. While I agree that the earlier caste system itself was discriminatory and wrong, we can't now have "reverse" discrimination. Two wrongs don't make a right, they only make it doubly wrong. While the caste system exists (due to centuries of ignorance), it's ABSOLUTELY imperative that eliminate this from our society. We all have to join hands and fight against this "Caste Census". People need to understand that all downtrodden are not necessarily OBCs or SCs. We need to bring up the poor and downtrodden in a more inclusive way, not just fatten up people who have been enjoying benefits for over 60 years now, and have become powerful Businessmen, MPs, CMs, Ministers, etc. I do not see any logic in how the progeny of these rich and influential "backward castes" can continue to reap benefits, after their parents have earned 100s of crores. That must be stopped immediately.

Comment: Problems of the Indian society like Poverty, illitracy, unemployment have nothing to do any more with caste. Upper cast people are suffering more from these problems but the inclusion of caste factor in the census is just another factor to make caste based politics more stronger in the country and divide it further for the benefit of politicians. It is to see that even after sixty years of independence and constant encourgement both administatively and politically to lower caste people which have improved their financial, academic and employment status in the society, still the division of Indian societ on caste base is intact. That means, caste is an integral part of our society and it should not be tackled they way it is being solved by the government. Government is dividing the society further on the basis of languages, caste, religion and region just ffor political benefit not for the benefit of the society and moreover these all policies are generating more heaterdness among people about each other divided from each other on so many factors. There is a need for the planners of the country to think some thing different and beyond these tricks of vote/power harnessing before things go out of hands.

In stead of removing such devising things, they want to nurture it. SHAME on THEM. I am STRONGLY against caste based census.

Comment: Going for a census where we identify castes is a sort of profiling on a prehistoric basis which is totally unnecessary. It will only encourage groupism and factionalism in an already divided country. Moreover if such an info based on groupism is required as a measure to improve certain sections of people, then why not group according to average annual income, place of abode, which I feel is a parameter enough for statistical research.

Comment: We should move away from the caste system, this also means that the reservation for certain category should be appended appropratiely. E.g. Why a seat in MBBS be granted at 3% less to a schedule caste as compared to other category. This also suggest we are promoting a less qualified person to a highly skilled and noble profession

Comment: Caste system in our country is pervasive and a naked reality. But, the division of people on the basis of caste is a menace for the society and the nation as a whole. What we need to do, is to combine our efforts so that this menace diminishes and after a point of time no longer persists. This was realized by our leaders as back as during struggle for independence. After seven decades, look what our leaders are doing to eradicate this menace. Introduction of caste in the decadal census which was shunned after 1931. The worst part is that the decision has been taken by person as erudite as Dr. Manmohan Singh and his experienced team. Nation will never forget this malicious attempt to deep root the caste based system in the country by Congress and its companion. The edifice of some of the political parties in the country is solely based on caste. Their existence itself depends on the existence of the caste system. Their effort will be to strengthen this system so that they keep on ruling the nation by 'divide and rule'. The political compulsion should not take the nation as a hostage. Nation comes first.

Taking a census with caste details will ensure that caste system does not go away from the society. It is a collective failure of independent india that we could not banish caste system from the minds of its polity. It shows the failure of our educational system.

Answer this first & then talk of census.

Comment: Caste, alas, is a demon that refuses to go away, and remains perhaps the single biggest hurdle to the evolution of India [ Images ] as one nation, one people. Each time we fill a form that seeks caste details -- be it in education, employment, and elsewhere -- the notion of equality celebrated in our Constitution takes a beating. The biggest blow for caste has been struck with the Manmohan Singh [ Images ] government including 'caste' as a criterion in the ongoing census, the first time since 1931 that India will do a headcount of the Other Backward Class communities. There can be no justification for breathing life into and conferring legitimacy on caste. We at rediff.com believe that caste is a monster that should be eliminated, and seek all like-minded people to join the initiative. Please fill the form below mentioning your name, e-mail id (this will not be revealed) and your reason for opposing 'caste', and we will ensure it reaches the decision-makers in government.

Comment: "Caste" - All you decision makers please educate me on how does mentioning the caste in the present day and age help anyone except for RESERVATIONS. The politicians get maximum benefit out of dividing us based on our castes and years after the britishers have gone back we still get divided and ruled by our slimy politicians. I request all like minded Indians to oppose the caste census.

Lalu & Mulayam support was just a ruse by the UPA to include caste, somehow blaming them. This is the true face of Manmohan Singh & his team, breaking & dividing Indians to rule India.

I am happy to mention that I have come up on my own and on my own talent. But, the governments will not let us live as ourselves. We have our own identities. Please for your safety in power, do not kill our identity. Please let us live our own life. Did we give you all these powers when we voted you to power?

Comment: Caste and communities are an integral part of Indian society. They are just a system allowing people to live together with different believes, practices and profession. It has been effective since ages and requires some reforms, but the system itself is not evil and reflects the unity in diversity of India. The law and the Constitution recognizes caste system and provisions for making it more people friendly. Only theocratic and fascist regimes would oppose such diversity and despite all the talks of uniformity even politicians nurture the system as it serves their democratic interests of vote politics. The last caste based census was done in 30s by British. The inclusion of caste in census will help identify and assist the weaker sections of society who have been marginalized by the mirage of so called growth story of India. It will also reveal the correct picture of backward communities and compel politicians to change their strategies for the real needy. In summary, I support the caste census. These are entirely my personal views and anyone is free to agree or disagree with the same.

Comment: In our country,discrimination based on caste & creed is prevalent. So if the proposed move is implemented it will bring more problems only as it might give way to communal riots. Generally a country will look to innovate and progress forward but this takes us back to the British raj-"Divide and rule"(obviously this is vote bank politics) I sincerely hope the government will not cede to the demands of the coalition. Jai Hind!

Comment: i m indian and thats wat i want to be known as. caste is some thing i have never been able to understand. i can understand the diversity in cultures due to the diversity in geographical regions. but the 1000s no of castes is beyond my ability to understand. every one knows the disadvantages of the caste system. the main reason that inspite of being the oldest civilization we are still far behind than developed nation is this caste system. people should be treated based on their role played in the society, not on their castes. i think this step of census according to the castes will take our country 100years back. already our country has been divided into three or four piece. how many more the goverment wants to make. in this way the day is not so far when we will not be able to say that we are the largest democracy in the world.

Comment: Caste system is a curse. There is no reason why caste should be included in census. This will only help political parties to further divide the country and use it as vote bank. There will be problems in Quota system where the castes might start agitations based on census results for more quota for self and questioning higher quota for others. this is attempt to create further rift between people and push the country behind by decades. caste should not be included in census. Instead of reaching a stage where we can eliminate RELIGION and counting only INDIANS, we are going backwards by including CASTE !! What a shame this is.

Also we already have the SC/ST in the caste census so we did not require to include the OBC as only the SC/ST are the classes facing discrimination and need affirmative action.

Comment: The caste based census is required to know the correct proportion of the so called minorities to the total population of the country. When we are talking about caste, we are talking about caste within Hindu society. If you are against caste, then you should also canvass against the reservations given for the so called minorities, the unnecessary previleges given etc. Yes I am against a caste system 1) where a converted christian claims a government job/seat for his child in an college quoting his original caste to which he belongs to. 2) where the reservation is given based on the caste to the so called minorities 3) where the subsidies are provided for Haj (if they are giving subsidies for going to visit Kashi, rameshwara etc for Hindus, then it doesn't amount to discrimination)yatra

If this continues General category people will have to convert them to SC/ST or OBC otherwise they will be dump. So Better Government take one decision better they stop Reserved category and stop casteism other wise convert All the people in general category to SC/ST or OBC. Regards, Gurudev

It has been rightly said by a leading industrialist of India that "India is the only country in the whole world where people fight to be backward caste". The whole system of Caste should be removed and all people should be treated one, equal opportunities should be given to all. There should not be quota system based on one's caste. Encouraging this system is nothing but an attempt to draw votes.Its purely politics. Unless this system of Caste is entirely removed, there will always be a wide gap between people. And if caste census is taken, it will be surely a storm in minds of people. Therefore, I am strongly against this census. Jai Hind!!!

They need all the support and the handicaps till they are lifted out of that status. Caste has no place here.The census should reveal the status of the poor on the basis of certain economic criteria - what they possess and what they don't. It should categorise the poor into 3 or 4 classes and this data should be used to formulate a strategy to uplift the poor from a lower class(not caste!) to a higher class(not caste!) within a certain time frame.

Unless there is a ban on Upper Caste Congregattion, (in business/industry/educational instution/religious maths/sansthas/Derasars etc.) you cannot wish away caste in India. The lower caste has to assert its number and fight for its share in the resources of the country. The menace 5000 years do not get wiped out in 60 years of weak attempts of legistlation. Do not be romantic. Let us have the number, it will give us clarity, how to deal with hunger of OBC's and ST'S/SC'S.

It will help us to work for them, or else you may not know, when the Naxalites have reached the outskirts of Metros and Cities.

Comment: I am dead against this caste system. All are Indians and reservations if any should be purely on the economic backwardness basis NOT on caste/religion basis. Its been more than 50 yrs and we are still continuing reservation on the basis of caste while it was initially planned only for 10 years. All the successive Govt's keep on renewing it to preserve their vote bank! High time its stopped. Now its really short-sightedness on part of UPA govt. to include caste in Census. This if implemented will be a final and decisive blow to spirit and ethos of democracy.

Bcoz if we will continue with this casteism we do not need any terrorists from outside the country becuse people will remain involve in fighting with each other on the basis of castes. Even parties like Vishv Hindu Parishad, RSS and Shivsena needs to be banned because they are much bigger threat to country than the terrorists.

Comment: While the nation is striving for a single civic society and brotherhood among religions and trying to eliminate the cast based discrimination, the some political leaders simply going out to stabilise the roots of casteism in the society only for vote bank. These leaders are simply the like street dogs who can run in to ur toilet even if a hint of opportunity is there. Congress is playing the nasty game of survival. God save the country. I m completely against the cast based census.

Comment: this is simply to gain the political benefits and divide the public to rule them, as british has done in the past and now days regional parties are doing. so avoid benefit of regional parties, congress has taken this step, but its not good for the future/development of india. we should avoid every policies/rules/reservations which is based on the cast, unless and untill we dont remove this, we will always be divided and it will become hurdles in our development.

Comment: I am in favour of Caste Census because it will collect the data which will show the real condition of who are backward and who are forward in India socially, politically and economically on the basis of caste. After knowing the conditions necessary measures should be taken by the Govt. to upgrade the conditions of backward classes like reservation of such classes in every area of development. That is why I am not against the caste census. The people (of Particular castes) who have possesed all the Govt. and non Govt. organisations are opposing Caste Census with the fear that they will be exposed by Caste census.

Comment: Even after 63yrs of independence, caste in social life has not died away. Still marriages are decided by elderly and caste is the primary factor in match making. But due to the software revolution and more educated women coming into employment, things have started to change. Upper middleclass is in the tipping point of ignoring caste details. At this juncture thinking that "wishing away caste is not meaningful" is at our own peril. Argument that 63yrs de-recognising caste details have not changed the society may be true. But we cant choose the forbidden path however difficult it may be.

Comment: It is high time India discontinue caste system in education, a7 employment. Instead we give some priority for the below poverty line people but only for education account. Let them learn well ang get employment on merit basis. Jobs should be always on merit basis. All reservations on cast basis should be immediately withdrawn along with Freedom Fighters benefit because in real means the least aged freedom fighter now should be minimum 80 years. But the present beneficiaries are much less aged ones.

Their suffering is same as previous. We Indian should have only one caste ie WE ARE ALL INDIANS. Let the people practice their caste sytem inside their house. Let all the politicans chant that they are all only Indians 100 times before they start any work.

Comment: Caste, alas, is a demon that refuses to go away, and remains perhaps the single biggest hurdle to the evolution of India [ Images ] as one nation, one people. Each time we fill a form that seeks caste details -- be it in education, employment, and elsewhere -- the notion of equality celebrated in our Constitution takes a beating. The biggest blow for caste has been struck with the Manmohan Singh [ Images ] government including 'caste' as a criterion in the ongoing census, the first time since 1931 that India will do a headcount of the Other Backward Class communities. There can be no justification for breathing life into and conferring legitimacy on caste. We at rediff.com believe that caste is a monster that should be eliminated, and seek all like-minded people to join the initiative.

I think two generations should be sufficient time for our Govt to remove the disparities in our scoiety due to earlier practised caste evils.Having a Caste based cencus will only raise demands for more reservations, more demands from various community leaders to have their castes included in OBC, more bloodshed, more bandhs , more violence.

Comment: I can't say that I totally against the caste census, but I am against the way it is being carried out. As we all know centre agreed for a caste based census albeit the cabinet is divided on this, succumbing to the pressure of the Yadav strongmen. We saw that the home minister ( Registrar General & Census Commissioner works under the Union Home Ministry ) opposing the idea of caste based census, though on the grounds that it will be difficult to incorporate it as the work has already started. But all changed in a matter of less than 24 hours much to his embarrassment. Hon'ble Finance Minister says that it would not be a trouble to include an extra column and hence it can be carried out. "Feasibility to add a column" -- is this a necessary and sufficient grounds for carrying out? This question is better left to the conscience of the policy makers. Coming to the question, whether Caste based census.. we have multiple programmes tied to closely to the caste ... not just at the center but also at the state and the local governments. My view is that unless we do away those caste biased programmes ( you may call it Affrimative action or Reservations or Inclusive Growth or Socio-Economic Development or whatever the term that catches your fancy.) there is a felt need for have the caste based data in hand, atleast to hold the principle Knowledge is Power.

The society and governmenance should not mention of caste for any reason , if a Government is serious about people's upliftment then it should look into the income status not caste . Reservation for certain castes is a social injustice for other castes who are not well established. Reservation policy must have no place in a free democratic society and mentioning caste must be banned and made criminal offence .

Comment: Cast is a system of Society. Why you are making noise on this issue? Cast was a system developed by our people in ancient time. In which entire society was divided in to four classes namely Brahmin, Shatriya, vesya and Sudra. These four casts were the four pillars of society. Let s compare the cast system with a company which needs four pillars like management, security, business development and workforce. Imagine without one of these what will happen to company? Similarly today we can also compare cast system as " Political Class people " Brahmins and Shatriya as they are deciding policy and they are also responsible for protection of the country. The Corporate and Business Groups are as Vesya and The Workers, all kind of service people in Govt or private like engineer, doctors, police, teacher, civil servants those are in working class they are only Sudra. So if you do not need Engineer/doctor/Police/teacher anybody those are providing services to you then you not need SUDRA in Cast system. If you do not want to grow the business no development then you does not need Vesya in cast system. If you do not need New Policy, implementation, and protection then you do not require political class i.e. no MP, No MLA no Corporators etc then you do not need Brahmin and Shatriya from cast System. Here being a upper cast but working as doctor/engineer /civil servant/police etc will be considered only as Sudra as Sudra means SEVA those provide services. Teacher does not mean Brahmin as he is again service provider so he also a Sudra. Similarly Mayawati / or any other Leader those say they are dalit like lalu Yadav, Mulayam Yadav they must be considered as Brahmin as they are policy make not service provider. Hence I think there is no need to destroy cast system. If you want to destroy please destroy, Exploitation, untochability, Unnecessary proud, Alasya, Bad films, ego, Corruption. You have lot of things like to destroy. You can start with any one of this.

But if it becomes a tool to divide people, it is neither good for the humanity nor for the nation. There has been and there will be various groups based on caste, religion, or more importantly money, however, we should know the fact that if we have to move forward and see our nation becoming developed, we have to think beyond dividing the people of the country. I have always thought that there should be a provision to uplift the poor society irrespective of caste or religion. If we bring caste into account considering the vote bank policy, it is going to harm our long term goal to become a developed, self-dependent and united India. Jai Hind

Comment: Census based on caste is unconstitutional as our constitution says that all citizens are equal then why this information is required by goverment. Actually census should be done based only on litracy, education, availability of basic health care facilities, availability of drinking water, availability of electricity, availability of motorable roads etc. All these things will give real picture of our population. Census based on caste is to make political benefit by providing some sort of reservation in government jobs. If people sitting in government are still not realising that real issue is to provide basic facilities to the population irespective of his caste and religion then there may be serious problem. If they are still playing with reservation policy it will break our society.

Comment: It is difficult to verify the caste as given by the person to census official. The caste verification is a laborious process.Thus, it may lead to wrong information on castes. Statistics based on caste may give in to some dangerous grouping, which India is always susceptable to.

If we continue to use cast as a measure in deciding priorities, the whole purpose of why it was started is useless. If we continue to do this after few years, we'll again have a situation where we'll have to consider specially about the people who are in open category currently.

Really in this modern days drastically changed....I heared one rule that when a person belong to SC would become president the next day should revise all govt rations to the community..as Dr.Ambethkar law.....No idea is it true? I fully agreed and previlleged to help the economically backward people in all community ....

Comment: The census needs to concentrate on the economic status of the person & not his caste. If you are hell bent on reservation provide the same on economic status & not his/ her caste. A poor guy is a poor guy irrespective of whether he ia SC or ST or brahmin or hindu or muslim or christian or a sikh.

Comment: While moving into the next century, we must focus on who is underprivileged and who's not, caste is not necessarily an indication of it. While we advocate of social equality, we should try every mean to eradicate caste identity from the society and census should be the first step towards it.

But the Politicians on one side they said we are all indian and on the other for power they will divide since caste is there vote bank. If they really want to uplift the poor, better to take census on BPL (Below Poverty Line) as suggested by former PM Shri Rajiv Ganthi. That is the best solution and method. If they sincerely attempt this work, really the people of Indians will be very bright. I wish the Govt. should take cencus on the line of BPL instead Caste.

Comment: I agree that caste has been a restraining factor to India's progress. It has not improved the real condition but has served the mean ends of the political parties, especially Congress, RJD, SP, BSP and select few ministers from the backward class. Actually , its a great disgrace for a great nation like ours that we have backward classes. What has the Congress I done to improve their conditions in 63 yrs except earmarking quota for them.Its is a great dis-honour to call or term certain section of Indians as backward...so pathetic. Instead , the Govt, Opposition and the people of India must create only one differention, ie , on the economic basis. The 'haves' & the "have-nots." Economically deficient people should be given FREE education, medical facility,shelter, electricity,water and basic needs. Then they should be left in the open field of competition for higher studies, jobs,and subsequent promotions.Thats all. In these 63 yrs if these so called 'backward caste' beneficieries have not improved, then they will not do so in the next 63 yrs also.Hence,they system should change.The words - caste and religion should be deleted from all application forms in schools,colleges,organisations, ID cards,passports, voters list and instead be called as INDIANS only. Further, caste and religion based politics and systems have torn the fabric of the Indian society and divided our nation. It has pitched Indians against Indians- Hindu : Muslims :Christians, similarly Higher : lower caste etc. Due to the perpetration of such systems India has become and remained divided since independence. Hence,not only census but the caste & religion based SYSTEM and QUOTAS should be done-away with. Then only real progress shall kiss the feet of our nation and people.

Comment: After nearly sixty years of Independence we are still harping on CASTE based society , so that the nation can be divided for political mileage, rather than uniting people for National Spirit(we are Indians first and last).Only economic backwardness combined with merit should be the only the criteria for a person to get overriding priority for any of the Government schemes like employment,admission in educational institution etc.

Comment: In the name of caste only the people who are near to the political class is getting the admissions in the Govt colleges and plum post in the Govt services. Actual weaker section of people are not benifited. Hence the census with caste name is not neccessary.

With due respect to Dr. Ambedkar's vision, the cast system today is used for vote bank, and nothing else. Every ruling party follow this and none is against in the fear of losing votes. The poor and real underdeveloped people didn't actually come up, and employment positions are filled with useless junks. Census is a very small issue, we need to see the bigger picture and find the root cause.

Comment: The novel idea of providing impetus to economically backward persons by providing certain reservations, has been distorted by cunning politicians to caste based reservations to meet their vote bank politics. This type of politics has never been people centric.It only has given manipulative power to the dirty politicians. The system has not been able to improve the conditions of economically backward people. It has only improved economic status of a few who were near and dear to politicians. I think we would be dividing society into caste system again rather than bringing backwards into main stream. Therefore I am against caste based census. Lets not play in the hands of few selfish politicians and oppose the very idea in masses.

It will give more fuel to Lalus, Mulayams, Mamtas and Yadavs to go for higher percentage of reservation. hat off to them. Dont know why they want caste based census. 50% sests are already reserved for various category(SC, ST, BC...) and after that they get seats from general quota also. So why not u fix 45% seats for general category and its ok if they are not allowed to get seat from other quota. buu these 45% seats should be filled by people from general category only. then u will see how many sc, st and bc gets converted to general category.

This has resulted in distrust, dis-unity and victimisatation. And this helped several invadors to easily loot and ruled our people using this di-unity among the people. The same divide and rule policy is ultised even today by our politician to ensure there vote banks is intact. To reap more on this education and free thinkings are beared from the poors and they are pushed to think that if they get united only among their Caste they can do something in future, which is not true. So remove Caste basis of dicrimition and ensure education reaches to everyone in the same way. This will uplift the poors not the caste grouping.

Where as they are expected to take leadership role in making right decisions for the country and taking masses along with them. This moral bankrupcy will move driver further reservations and downfall of meritocracy. We can never address our population problem if numbers rather than wisdom forces a decision. The drawback of democracy "where two fools can over-rule a wise man" is clear here. Just pray to the almighty that we are not pushed back to the 18th century by such divisive actions.

Comment: today it seems our society is not growing as our economy. this is very unfortunate that even educated ppl supports caste system. before writing this i want to make clear that till today i am mentionaning my self as general in all competitive exams. i qualified for MBA in IIT roorkee being in general caste but i dont feel any hatered for lower class as upper caste people do.i strongly against the caste census. by doing that we are promoting the castism. i would like to give 5 reasons why caste sensus should not be done: 1. in fact today caste is meaningless.if a caste should realy be followed strictly then why a brahmin should go to IIT to learn technology rather they should do puja in temple. but it does not happen. 2. due to castisam only honor killing is happening today. all young boys and girls should have freedom to chose their partner irrespective of caste religion and religion.. 3. by not doing caste sensun it will be the first step to abolish castism. 3. by abolising caste system we can concentrate more on the social development based on financial and educational backwardness. 4. if there is no caste there will not be any upper or lower class. and there wont be hatered and discrimination based on caste. 5.all of us will be same . no one will feel proud to be high caste and no one will feel inferior being lower class. love and prosperity will spread. this is high time to act against this evil. as sati system , dahej pratha and many others social evils are eradicated from society lets all of us oppose this census based on caste. and show the world that we are really a words largest DEMOCRACY.

Comment: Caste is being misused by people in power to play petty politics and further their divisive agenda. Instead of removing these divisions, it is indeed disheartening to notice that the Indian government is strengthening divisive institutions by adding Caste into census. Please cease and desist from destroying the nation for your own selfish needs.

Comment: Why are you campaigning against caste in census. Caste is the basis for everything that we are in India. You can not marry the girls of your higher or lower caste? The farming lands that you own depend upon which caste you belong to. The profession that you & your family are in depends on the caste. Your education, language, sophistication, your way of living everything depends on your caste. Few imagine that nothing depends on caste. That is far from truth. If Government wants to do something for downtrodden, caste is the only genuine basis to decide on the backwardness. It doesnot show only economical backwardness but also social, educational and all other types of backwardness.

Comment: I totally condemn this move by the government. This move is very regressive and goes on to further prove the fact that the Indian mindset is still governed by the caste system. By doing a caste census, we give credibility to the caste based regressive politics of political parties like BSP, RJD and SP. If we are to look at growth, we really need the money alloted to people below the poverty line reaching them instead of everything eaten up by the politician. So if anything, we need a revamp of the political system rather than dividing the society based on caste. This proposal by the government is as regressive and potentially harmful as reservation based on SC/ST, if not more. I really hope that the government takes corrective measure and stops its plan to carry out the caste based census.

If these bunch of power / money hungry duds go on at this rate, the day is not far when the idea of India itself will be lost. It is pathetic to see people fighting in the name of region, language, caste, religion and what not. For a nation to be a super-power it's people need to be united and work together and for that to happen there has to be feeling of oneness. I have never seen a politician talking about the nation.

We all know that HIstorically caste system has been one of the worst social ills of the Indian society through the ages. Also, the makers of the constitution, had provided for reservation for a limited period and not for eternity. The caste based census is going to unleash an era of unprecedented social divide which has the potential to dent the Integrity of the Nation. So as a Nation, we have to collectively say a BIG NO to the caste census irrespetive of our caste, creed, race, religion etc. United we stand, divided we fall- so please unite and serve your Nation.

Comment: Caste is an evil. I think in India only caste plays a prominent role in all spheres of life especially politics. Now, all these political leaders are heading to divide the diversified country on the basis of caste by making census on the basis of caste. This means, if any person especially a foreigner asks about the population of India, it implies that we have to tell so and so caste forms so much of population. Is it ridiculous? Eventhough India is a democratic country, this type of discussions should not be allowed in parliament, which simply down grades ancient Indian civilisation, which we are proudly speaking in all the forums. In this modern age of communication and sophesticated gaget era, all citizions of India should be treated as equal, there should not be any differences between person to person. All should be treated as equal like in western countries, where all are given equal treatment and there is no discrimination between persons in employment, education and any spheres of activities. If we insist upon caste based senses, this will certainly divide the country, which aparently go deep rooted scar in the face in the years to come. Dr Babasahib Ambedkar himself once said that the reservation should be abolised by 50th year of independence, by that time all the down trodden people should be brought at part with others and thus the reservation became irrelevant. But, now it goes vice versa. Day by day the percentage of reservation goes on increasing and increasing even after 60 years of independence, which clearly defeats Dr Ambedkars vision of India after 50 years of independence. If this caste bases senses allowed to be carried out it will defenitely clutch the throat of India and there will be chaos and confusion in the years to come. Hence, as a proud citizion of India, I am against this caste census. I am against caste and creed. I am proud to be Indian and I am proud to be called as Indian only and not by any other name. I think the drive against caste census launched by REDIFF will definitely yield fruitful result shortly. Thanks and regards

Comment: We Indians talk about equality for men and women and at the same time we talk about caste based reservations for many. We discriminate people on basis of caste by defining higher or lower caste, which the people in all walks of life do use it to for their convenience. If we have just one caste as Indian, then who will dare to ask what religion/caste a person is. We feed into people s mind, that you are upper or lower caste and then tell all are equal. As long as we have caste based education/jobs etc., there will be discrimination.

Today, if somebody speaks anything on these issues, he is blamed to hurt the sentiments of particular community or religion. Even the media is wary of these issues and nobody dares to challenge. They put disclaimers at the begining of controversial issues that they do not want to hurt anybody's feelings etc. Now the political establishement and so called leaders are trying to undo the good work done by our leaders like Mahatma Gandhi.

If Indians can't eat together, pray together, live together and have to look up to fossils like Khap Panchayats for legal illumination, we are regressing to 12th century. As a polity that made so much of noise over racism, caste embodies everything negative that we shun otherwise. This campaign is our last chance to show we are not a nation of hypocrites.

Comment: The census is a vast exercise undertaken to have a realistic record of headcounts; which also serves various other purposes with respect to planning in various sectors. While most politicians if they wish their relatives to marry an upper caste girl would argue for giving up caste system but for the purpose of seeking reservation they would press for caste based census. Further, if we have the ultimate aim of freeing our society of caste system, we need to stay away from any exercise which is expected to triger caste based clashes. Also, in case our wise politicians aim of freeing our society of reservations at any point of time in the future, caste based census should not be undertaken. Instead it would be a good idea to take stock of income level of each individual and family which will help determining economically backward people irrespective of their castes and then care can be taken to bring them up both economically and socially.

It is a shame that even after 60years+ after independence, we have not been able to get over the hang of castism and continue to increase reservations day by day. A census should rather be made for the people declared as reserved categories and are placed in jobs. Census is required as to how the reservation policy has helped them and whether they need this in future.

Comment: Caste is a taboo. Gandhiji spent his life for the cause against practice of untouchability in our society. If sensus by caste is made, we will go back to old caste system. Again people will start discriminating many of their colleagues on this basis which will not be good for the health of our nation as well as humanity.

Comment: Dear Sir, we are moving towards disaster.why caste is important now a days.there are allready so many problems because of this caste(Faith).every caste or faith leads them to think different or superior. In this case we are inferior give me more. I beleive in first deserve and then desire.when castes and all the backward thinkings has been abolished, now this preference on caste system should be abolished too. Now a days i always think is there any god in this world, because there are so many things are happening why he is not doing anything. i beleive that world would be better without all these religions. there should be just human beings. i think if there is god, then god is the person with lot of patience which we cannot have in our life span of 60-70 years. anyway i am against caste system. thanks

My father always opposed and his anger on casts slearly reflects in my name and my borthers name. He had his surname but he did not choose to give us while admitting to school. Since then,in every step of life a countless people asked me why my name has Two Names - Ritesh Rahul and my answer never satisfies people who are born with caste in their root. This is the fact that it is their in our root.If you introduce yourself before your school teacher,your employer, your girlfriend or just anywhere, just first name does not complete you, You have to complete yourself with CASTE. -Ritesh

Comment: By including caste in census, we will give more teeth and legitimacy to archaic groups like Khap Panchayats (Haryana). Also when we are trying to get equality for even after 62 yrs of independence, this will help people with superiority complex to oppress people from lower caste (in UP, Bihar, Haryana, Rajasthan, Punjab) openly. It will also be used by politicians to fan sepretist movement saying, people of so n so caste are eligible to live at a particular place, and others shouldn't (MNS, Shiv Sena in Bombay, SP/BJP in UP, splinter parties in North East). So its important to avoid caste based census in an effort to reduce difference when the constitution of India says 'Equality for All'

Comment: Why should we go back to the age-old biased system of relegating people according to their caste? Why not just accept individuals as they are rather than deliberating on what caste, creed or sect they belong to?

Comment: Casteism was created when there used to exist superiority complexes in the higher caste (Brahmins). Now when there exists no difference between any human being, should we not abolish this difference which has been created by us humans only?

Comment: Caste system should be abolished. God never created religion/caste. It is man who created that. Only Love can unite all of us and spirituality is the base on which the entire world rests. So let us remove this caste/religion barrier and be united as Indians.
