36.1 Overview of this chapter

The chapter gives outlines of the law-drafts by which by which caste based reservation will reduce to below 5% using approvals of poor SC, ST and OBCs. And next topics explain, why I support caste based reservation and oppose poverty-based reservation. And final sections explain, why I oppose proposal to extend reservation to Muslims, Christians, Muslim Dalits or Christian Dalits. Further, I have explained why activists must spend time in giving information about the proposal to give reservation benefits to Muslims\Christian Dalits. The activist can decide whether he supports it or opposes it, but I request them firmly not to ignore this issue today. Further, I have explained why caste based reservation is necessary and poverty-based reservation is a farce.

36.2 First step to reduce reservation : the system of “dole vs. reservation”

What makes RRP different from all parties is that we support an administrative system, called as economic-choice to reduce demand for reservation in poor SC, ST and OBCs. Following is the summary of the system of economic-choice for Dalits, STs and OBCs

1. Any member of a sub-caste that belongs to ST, SC or OBC can walk to Tahsildar’s office, undergo verification and apply for economic-choice , where in
o he shall still retain his SC, ST, OBC status
o he shall receive inflation adjusted Rs 600 per year, till he cancels economic-choice
o he will be eligible for reservation moment he cancels his economic-choice
o he will be ineligible for reservation till he has economic choice
o the number of reserved seats will decrease by those who opt for economic-choice
o a person will first get seat in his own quota and then general quota ; so if he is in general merit list as well, then he will not get seat in general merit list, but get seat in his own merit list.
o the money shall come from tax on land and nowhere else

2. Example : Say India has 100 cr of population of which 14 cr are SC. So if a college has 1000 seats of then 140 are reserved . Now suppose out of these 14 cr SCs, say 6 cr insist on economic-choice then each shall get payment of Rs 100 a month and reservation for SC will go down by 6% i.e. will become about 8%.

Most poor Dalits did not get much benefit from Reservation, and as elitemen in Dalits increased in numbers, the opportunities for poor dalits further reduced. The economic-choice creates a system by which the poor left out dalits can also get some benefit of the reservation as well. Many of them would opt for economic-choice as (opposed to social-choice that reservation offers). This will reduce reservation

To what extent will economic choice reduce reservation? Population of India is 120 cr and that of SC, ST and OBC is 70 cr. Hypothetically, if entire 70cr of SC, ST and OBC population were to go on economic choice, then the quota would reduce from 50% to 0% and cost will be Rs 1200 * 70 = Rs 84,000 crore a year, which is 1.5% of 2010-2011 GDP and some 10% of taxes collected by Central Govt in the same year. This was an extreme scenario. Say out of 70 cr SC/ST/OBC say 50 cr prefer economic choice. Then money to be given will be Rs 30000 crores and then reservation will reduce from 50% to 20/70*50 = 14% . Now if say 5% of merit list consists of ST, SC and OBCs, then effective reservation becomes 9% only, from existing 50%. (see next topic too).

36.3 Second step to reduce reservation : own-quota first

A person will first get seat in his own quota and then general quota ; so if he is in general merit list as well, then he will not get seat in general merit list, but get seat in his own merit list. So say there are 100 seats of which 14 are reserved for SCs. Now say 1000 students appear for exams of which say 100 are SCs. Now say 3 SCs are in top 100. Then they will get seat in the SC quota and so seats for SCs in their separate merit list will be 11.

So with economic choice, the reservation quota may reduce from 50% to say 10% or even less. Now many SC, ST and OBCs anyway make into the merit list. And so the effective reservation will decrease to even lesser, say 5%.

36.4 Third modification : giving higher preference to more backward

The communities which have lesser representation in administration will get more seats till their representation is at the same level. For this we need a complete caste census. Once a complete caste system is there, each sub-caste’s % representation will be calculated. And higher preference will be given to sub-caste with lowest representation, till its representation becomes adequate.

To one example, say ST consists of 10 sub-castes such as Meena, Bheel etc. Now population of India is 100 crore and say there are 1 crore Govt employees. STs are 7 crore and so 7 lakh seats are reserved for STs. Now say Meena’s population is 30 lakh and population of Bheel is 50 lakh. And so their proportion in reservation will be 30,000 and 50000 respectively. But say Meena have over 30,000 over their deemed sub-quota positions in Govt and Bheel have below 50000 i.e. below their deemed sub-quota. The for few years, the Bheel will get higher preference than Meena. This is necessary to being most backward caste further high in the society.

36.5 Stand on issues linked with reservation

MRCM law-draft will reduce poverty. And the changes I have proposed in education, such as Right to Recall District Education Officer etc will further reduce gap between education in dalits and upper castes. And the laws I have proposed in religious charities will reduce the discrimination Dalits face in temples. Further, I have proposed to end all interviews at the level of initial recruitment in Police, Govt, banks, RBI, SBI, judiciary, Govt lawyer and so forth, and this will also reduce the discrimination Dalits face in recruitment. So the % score gap between closing rank general and reserved categories would reduce day by day. In addition, we propose following modification in reservation

1. Create a system of economic-choice to reduce demand for reservation (explained above)

2. The Dalit, Tribal or OBC if applicable for reservation, will have to first apply in their respective quota and only after their quota is filled, can they apply in general quota.

3. Reservation should be only for Dalits, Tribals and OBCs who are Hindu, Buddhists, Jain or Sikh. To be specific, there should be no reservation for Dalits, Tribals, OBCs in Muslims, Christians etc. because there are no Dalits in these two religions.

4. No reservation on any other basis, including religion, economic or social

5. Ensure that more backward amongst backwards get benefits using higher sub-quota for more backwards and other means

These are our broad proposals. Devil lies in details. The various sections of this chapter have the details.

36.6 Details of administrative changes we promise on reservation issue

Economic-Choice System

1. Any member of a sub-caste that belongs to ST, SC or OBC can walk to Tahsildar’s office, undergo verification and apply for economic-choice , where in
 he shall still retain his SC, ST, OBC status
 he shall receive inflation adjusted Rs 600 per year, till he cancels economic-choice
 till he gets this payment, he cannot apply in reserved quota.
 he will be eligible for reservation the day he cancels his second-choice
 number of reserved seats will decrease depending on number of those who have opted-out
 dole money shall come from tax on land and nowhere else.

2. Example : Say India has 100 cr of population of which 14% i.e. 14 cr are SC. So if a college has 1000 seats of then 140 are reserved . Now suppose out of these 14 cr SCs, say 6 cr insist on economic-choice then each shall get payment of Rs 100 a month and reservation for SC will go down by 14*0.66*6/14 = 5.94% i.e. will become 8.06% IOW, if every SC were to take economic choice, the reservation would become 1/3 of what it is now. The reservation will be across ran and file of administration, from Supreme Court to peons

3. If a person has opted for economic-choice and then changes to social-choice, he will be entitled for CBR benefits on that day. But if he reverts back to economic choice, he shall get Rs 600 payment after 1 year

4. If a person is Dalit, OBC has opted for economic-choice, he can still obtain seat on quota, but shall become eligible after he cancels economic-choice

5. If a person has taken any seat on SC\ST\OBC quota, he wont be eligible for economic-choice

6. Child will get Rs 600 year payment only if both parents opt for economic-choice

7. If both parents have opted for economic-choice, their children shall get Rs 600/year for at most (2 sons) or (2 sons, 1 daughter).

Caste census

8. Conduct a full wealth and sub-caste census : Caste strife is a reality. It cannot vanish by hiding it and it cant be dealt administratively if it is hidden. To properly deal with any issue, administration needs crystal clear information. So we propose to take sub-caste census where in sub-caste of each person along with position he holds in Govt, PSU and market value of land/assets he owns will be noted. The census will improve with National-ID system and an accurate system with less than 1% inaccuracy can be built in 2-4 years. But an approximate system can be built in 6 months. We shall start with the inaccurate system and increase the accuracy every day.

9. There are about 200 sub-castes in India, but since social situation between a caste in one state and analogous caste in another state may be different, they become different caste in the National list. So the National List has about 5000 castes, while most States’ Lists have about 200-400 sub-castes. So the census will note which of the 5000 state-wise sub-caste the person belongs to. Please note – sub-castes will be state-wise only.

10. If a person claims to general, then he need not specify caste or sub-caste and shall not get any benefit of reservation. But if a person or his father has taken benefit of reservation, then he must specify the caste, state and sub-caste he belongs to.

11. Using person-caste-wealth data, PM can obtain per capita wealth of sub-caste.

12. Political Wellness Index : The Political Index of a caste will be calculated as follows

Position

Points

PM, Supreme Court judge, HC-Cj, Regulators in Central Govt, RBI Gov, RBI Deputy Gov, Bank Chairman

50,00,000 points

High Court judges, Principal Session judges, Dept Secretaries in Central Govt, regulators in State Govt, CM

40,00,000 points

Sessions judges, Ministers in Center

10,00,000 points

Other lower court judges, Ministers in State

5,00,000 points

MP, officers above Under Secretaries

1,00,000 points

MLA , District Panchayat Sarpanch

15,000 points

All class-I officers in Central, State Govt, Police etc (not PSUs)

20,000 points

All class-II officers in Central, State Govt, Police , etc

10,000 points

All class-III officers in Central, State Govt, Police etc

5,000 points

All employees in PSUs, Central Govt, State Govt etc (including above)

Annual salary divided by 100

Person with 10,00,000 times the per capita wealth (*)

100,00,000 points

Person with 1,00,000 times the per capita wealth

10,00,000 points

Person with 10,000 times the per capita wealth

1,00,000 points

Person with 1000 times the per capita wealth

10,000 points

Person with 100 times the per capita wealth

1,000 points

* –  wealth will include wealth of charitable trusts they own divided by number of trustees

Policies to assist backward amongst backward

13. The castes with lower points would get more seats within their quota.

14. Example of above : Say one caste has 10 times more points than other caste. Then the caste with lower points will have 10 times more seats in reservation than the caste with higher points.

36.7 On reservation for Muslim former-Dalits and Christian former-Dalits

[I have added this section on 15-may-2012 , after Swami Ramdevji got manipulated to supported demand to include Muslim former-Dalits and Christian former-Dalits in reservation, in lieu of support for Bring Black Dollars back.]

Now in India, MNC\Missionary agents such as Nitish Kumar, Ram Vilas Paswan, Sharad Yadav, Yechuri, Karat, Sonia Gandhi, Manmohan Singh, P Chidambaram, Mamta have been supporting demand to include Muslim former-Dalits and Christian former-Dalits into reservation quota for Dalits. And Ford Foundation agents, The Anna and the Chhote Anne too, have been openly supporting this demand. Eg one Chhote Anna, who is well known lawyer has filed PIL in a court demanding reservation for Muslim Dalits !! Now due to death of Rajeev Dixitjee, many nefarious elements like Dawood-agent Ram Jethmalani and MNC\Missionary-agent Subramanian Swami got chance to come close to Swami Ramdevji. And these leaders and psuedo-activists have manipulated Swami Ramdevji to issue a statement that reservation benefits given to Dalits should be extended to Muslim former-Dalits and Christian former-Dalits.

Now over 90% BST (BST = Bharat Swabhiman Trust, the political organization started by Swami Ramdevji) workers have opposed inclusion of Muslim and Christian former-Dalits. But sadly BST-workers flatly refused to discuss the matter amongst themselves and also communicate to their district-heads, state-heads, Swami Ramdevji, and also public at large. And the persons who had surrounded Swamiji kept giving them wrong advices. One Chhote Anne told him “see Swamiji, you are a hero in all Hindus but Muslims see you as communal, and now you must do something so that you become hero in Muslims too”. Sadly, Swamiji slipped and got manipulated into issuing a statement favoring reservation for Muslim Dalits. It is time we activists correct the mistake and openly demand that there should be no reservation for Muslim Dalits and Christian Dalits.

The Missionaries have been demanding that former-Dalits in Christians should get reservation benefits so that conversion may increase. The MNC-owners merely want to help Missionaries. The MNC-owners help missionaries by giving media-coverage to those leaders who help Missionaries with their nefarious agenda. Most paid-historians and paid-sociologists insist that MNC-owners and Missionaries do not and never had nexuses. Well, the nexus between Missionaries and MNC-owners has been over 400 year old. Eg reason why East India Company owners asked bullet manufacturers not to use buffalo tallow (charbi) and instead use cow tallow and pig tallow was to enable Missionaries to convert maximal numbers of Indian soldiers in East India Company Army.

This motive was not mentioned by the paid historians like Romilla Thapar the history textbooks for the career-payments they got from the then PM Jawaharlal Ghazi. Speaking of today, the MNC-owners as well as Saud Islamists have made a policy that all leaders who will support reservation for Dalit Muslims will get cash as well as favorable media coverage. And so all cash-hungry and media-hungry leaders like Sharad Yadav, Nitish Kumar, Mulayam Yadav, Akhilesh Yadav, Mayawati, Jayalalitha etc are running to support this cause. And most BJP leaders, who are also cash-hungry and media-hungry have decided to look aside. Which is why, when Swami Ramdevji by error made this statement supporting reservation for ex-Dalits in Muslims and Christians, all BJP leaders such as LKA, Naidu, Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jetley etc silently supported it and ordered all MLAs and MPs not to oppose it. And RSS top leaders too have instructed middle leaders not to inform or oppose this proposal amongst grassroot RSS-activists.

So as on may-20-2012, the goal of Saud Islamists, Missionaries etc is to keep the public off guard and get this legislation passed in the Parliament. Or get Cabinet Order issued. Because extending reservation to Muslim\Christian Dalits does not need legislation. A Cabinet Order can be issued to cancel Cabinet Order that Nehru was forced to issue in 1950. That 1950 Cabinet Order restricts reservation benefits to Hindu Dalits. Once USA’s Viceroy to India, Manmohan Singh, issues cabinet order to cancel that 1950 Cabinet Order, reservation will get extended to Muslim Dalits and Christian Dalits. BJP-leaders and RSS-leaders seem to have promised that they will raise some small noise in Parliament but will not make any agitation in public, and blame in Hindus will go on the head of Swami Ramdevji.

36.8 Why oppose reservation to Muslims\Christian Dalits? —– No discrimination was there in past ; No records available

There are 3 reasons I oppose reservation for former Dalits and former Tribals in Muslims and Christians. The reasons in short are as follows

1. The reservation for SC, ST and OBC is only because they were discriminated against in past. Now there was never discrimination against “so called dalits” in Muslims and Christian. So there is no basis for reservation for them.

2. There are no records available anymore to verify whether ancestors of a Muslim or Christian, who claims that his ancestors were dalits, were actually dalits. So if reservation for “Dalit Muslims” is allowed, then many non-Dalit Muslims such as Saiyeed and Shiekh too may manage to get SC or OBC certificate and thus get reservation benefit. And this will result into sharp decrease in reservation benefits for actual Dalit Hindus.

3. Giving reservation to Dalit Muslims and Dalit Christians will decrease reservation for other Dalits, Tribals and OBCs or will decrease seats available to General category. Eg some muslim leaders claim that 80% of Muslims are former-Dalits !! This will be about 10% of total population of India. So either reservation will need to increase by 10% or reservation for Hindu\Sikh dalits will decrease by a substantial amount.

Let me explain all these reasons in detail. Also, in the next section, I have explained

36.9 Why oppose reservation to Muslims\Christian Dalits? – Explanation in detail

To clearly state my stand, since 1998, I have supported reservation for SC, ST and OBC, but only those who Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist or Jain. Because there is NO such thing as Muslim Dalit and Christian Dalit. They can at best be labeled as Muslim former-Dalit and Christian former-Dalit. and opposed reservation for other SC, ST, OBC . In the copies of the manifesto which came out in 2004, 2008 and 2010, I have clearly mentioned , what is in section-36.3 of this book.
Reservation only for Dalits, Tribals and OBCs who are Hindu, Buddhists, Jain or Sikh. To be specific, no reservation for Dalits, Tribals, OBCs in Muslims, Christians etc.

IOW, forget extending reservation to Dalit Muslims\Christian, my demand had been since 2004, that reservation given to non-Hindu Tribals too should be cancelled. Following are the reasons in detail :-

1. There was no discrimination in past : Till almost 1900, the dalits in Hindu were prohibited from entering temples, where as former-dalits in Muslims and Christians were allowed visit their mosques and church, and even allowed to become Maulavi or Priest. Till almost 1900 AD, the dalits in Hindus were prohibited from taking education and taking jobs in Govt as well as private sector. As a result, education in Dalits was low and their presence in Government as well as private sector jobs was also low. But Muslims dalits were never discriminated against. They always had access to education and also got positions in Govt. In fact, forget dalits, in Muslims, many slaves have risen to high positions and sometimes also become Emperors. And there are countless examples where they rose to high positions. Thus the very basis for reservation – that past ancestors were denied education and jobs in Govt doesn’t apply in case former-dalits in Muslims and Christians.

2. Lack of records and so possibility that well-off will corner benefits : Islam does not have caste, and so former-dalits in Muslim never had separate identity. So there are no records to establish ancestry. Most former-dalits converted around between 700 AD to 1600 AD. Now it is impossible for administration to verify which caste a persons’ ancestor belongs to some 400 years to 1300 years ago. So it will become possible for well educated Muslims to claim that their ancestors were also Dalit. Now out of about 18 crore Muslims in India, some 3 crore are well educated. And if 1 crore or them manage to claim that their ancestors were Dalits, and if they get Dalit certification, then almost all benefits given to Dalits may get cornered by them. This will cause gross injustice to Dalits.

3. It will decrease seats for existing SC, ST , OBC or General : Many muslim leaders claim that out of 18 crore Muslims, as many as 12 crore have dalit ancestor. As of now, population of India is about 120 crore, of which 18 crores are Dalits and they have reservation of 14% . If additional 12 crore Muslim-former-Dalits are given reservation, then either effective number of seats that existing Hindu Dalits get will reduce and if % for Dalits is raised from 14% to 24% , then either reservation for OBCs will decrease or total number of seats for General Category will decrease. This will be gross injustice to them.

36.10 What can activists do?

I seldom ask activists to dump their all pet-projects to focus on one activity. But this time I will. I will officially request ALL activists to dump ALL their pet projects for at least 30 days and focus on 5 activities

1. Use pamphlet and newspaper advertisements. Please inform citizens and fellow activists about the fact that 100% MPs of Congress , CPM, CPI, Sharad Yadav, Mayawati, Mulayam, Laloo, Nitish Kumar, DMK, Jaylalitha, Mamta, Naveen Patnaik, etc have agreed to extend reservation to Dalit Muslims and Dalit Christians. So about 370 Loksabha MPs and 180 Rajyasabha MPs are all set to go. The most likely reasons are the bribes they got from Saudi Arabia, Missionaries and MNCs.

2. Use pamphlet and newspaper advertisements. Inform citizens that most BJP and Shiv Sena MPs are not raising this issue in public. Most activist leaders such as The Anna, The Chhote Anne etc are supporting it. Shameless Prashant Bhushan has even filed PIL demanding inclusion of Muslim Dalits and Christian Dalit in reservation for Dalits. Again, the most likey reasons are the bribes they got from Saudi Arabia, Missionaries and MNCs.

3. Use pamphlet and newspaper advertisements. Inform citizens that there are NO dalits in Muslims and Christians. They may have been Dalits 20-30 generations back. They were NEVER discriminated and many since centuries have arose. Forget Dalits, even slaves in Islam have become emperors. eg Emperor Iltutamish, father of Alauddin Khilaji, was a former slave. And many ex-Dalits have become senior Military officers and Govt officers. Now if ex-Dalit muslims are given reservation, then almost ALL muslims, including vice-president Ansari and 3 bollywood khans etc will claim that 30 generations back their ancestors were dalits and will all get dalit-certificates. Some 2 crore muslims have good educcation and are very well off financially. They too will all get Dalit Certificates. So this will reduce reservation benefits going to actual Hindu Dalits. So please request citizens to decide whether they support or oppose this proposal.

4. Use pamphlet and newspaper advertisements. Ask citizens and activists to tell their MPs, MLAs and organization leaders to publicly state whether they oppose or support extension of reservation to Muslim\Christian Dalits.

5. Use pamphlet and newspaper advertisements. Publicize and Demand Right to Recall MP law-draft today, right now, so that all these corrupt Congress, BJP, CPM, Mamta, Mayawati etc MPs do not dare to pass such laws. And also publicize RTR-PM. If we have RTR-PM, no matter which PM we have, he will NOT dare to collude with MNCs, Missionaries and Saudi Arabia. The draft for RTR-PM is given in section-6.6 of http://rahulmehta.com/301.htm and RTR-MP is given in section-40.2

This is the need of the time.

36.11 What can you do to fix the reservation mess?

Please read chap-13 of this book http://rahulmehta.com/301.htm . It has several steps where-in you can spend 6 hours a week and help to bring TCP draft in Gazette in India. The steps involve distributing pamphlets, informing citizens on motives of leaders such Congress MPs, BJP MPs, The Anna etc who oppose TCP draft, by giving newspaper ads, contesting elections. Once TCP gets printed in Gazette, using TCP, it will become easy for activists to get citizens’ opinion law-drafts mentioned in this chapter. That will reduce effective reservation from 50% to say 10% or even lower, make more backward get larger share and bring other changes.
