Q.1 Conducting a caste census is important for better targeting of welfare services; however, such an exercise is fraught with challenges to social harmony and risks polarization. Discuss. (15 Marks)

Mentor’s Comments-

  • Briefly write about the context of Caste Census, mentioning Mandal Commission, 1931 Census and 2011 SECC.
  • In the next part, explain its significance such as its use in evidence-based policy making, equitable representation, and understanding exact deprivation level.
  • Also explain the challenges to it, both substantive and procedural such as caste being context-specific, vote bank politics and caste polarization, cumbersome process and failure of 2011 SECC.
  • Conclude by mentioning that reservation is not a solution to problem of employment as it is being shown.
