Triggered by Reservation of Higher Education

Every society needs some form of affirmative action. However, the amount of coverage and effort devoted by the Indian press to reservation policy depresses me.

Even if new IIT's and IIM's are created, we are creating opportunities for thousands when the need is for millions.

Why not improve the existing institutions? What happened to the Regional Engineering Colleges which were upgraded to NIT's? Was the impact in the change of name only?

What will prevent the new IIT's from degenerating into replicas of the existing institutions other than the IIT's?
