Answered by NewsBytes
In my opinion, if there is no caste-based reservation during selection process of faculties, it will improve the quality of education system. However, reservation is not the only factor which impacts our system, but lack of competitive salaries, no research grants etc. demotivate good talent to take up a teaching position. Please note-this expresses personal opinion of the author and not of NewsBytes's.
