Delhi Assembly Election Dates Bihar Assembly Election Dates New Delhi: Having put on hold 27 per cent quota for OBCs in Central educational institutions, the Supreme Court on Thursday wanted to know whether Government could spell out norms for going ahead with its reservation policy and submit a fact-sheet to it.
While senior advocate Harish Salve was pressing that the concept of equality as defined in the Constitution cannot be given a go-by, the Bench remarked that "the government was bound by the recommendation of the National Commission of Backward Caste NCBC.
Salve submitted that if the statute calls for reservation for a class, then it class has to be identified and government must come out with the parameters about backwardness. While Salve had strong opposition to the Central Educational Institution Reservation for Admission Act,senior advocate K Parasaran, appearing for the Tamil Nadu Government said: "They upper caste dominated for centuries and now they should suffer.
At this, the Bench said suppose only 10 per cent people were the oppressor, then why the 90 per cent people should suffer now. Salve also said it cannot be said if Brahmins have oppressed others in Tamil Nadu for years, now it was their turn.
The senior advocate said special provision providing quota to OBCs has to be the act of balance for social engineering. It cannot be on personal expression, data or hunches," he said adding that "political compulsions are driving the reservation policy.
However, "the system is misfiring," he said and elaborated it further by stating that government has not done anything in the post-Indra Sawhney judgement Mandal case for identifying the 'Creamy Layer' among the OBCs to exclude them from the benefit of reservation. Salve said selection of caste for reservation would further perpetuate caste system which then would destroy the purpose of quota by way of special provision.
Tracing the history of reservation, Salve said in the pre Census, people used to plead to be registered as forward case and now reverse was happening.
The court by its March 29 order had stayed the implementation of the law providing 27 per cent quota stating that the data based on a year-old Census cannot be the determining factor for affirmative action.

But I was not brought up knowing anything about the caste system for Tamils. I googled Tamil Castes, hoping to find pages of hits with academic studies and blog posts on the subject. But I hit a wall. Most of the actual studies that are on google are about caste system for Sri Lankan Tamils. Then I found this.
It's a report by a Canadian refugee board, for the UN Refugee agency, and it is about: "Castes for Tamils living in the State of Tamil Nadu; whether Tamils belong to a specific caste; whether they are related to the untouchables Harijans or Dalits ; whether they face any problems with other castes or with the authorities because they belong to a particular caste - December " The report is about a specific set of issues dealing with caste, but this part caught my attention: Quote: "Although no information could be found as to the specific names of the various castes found in Tamil Nadu, How about putting together a list of resources on this subject.

Linear Mode.Which castes are seen as higher castes and which are the lowest ones in Tamil Nadu and Kerala? Is he same rule applied in Karnataka and Andhra as well? I am not too sure about the caste break-up in other states.
But I do know a bit about how it is in my home state, Kerala. The classification was very unique. But I shall not take that into consideration for this answer. As in all places, the Brahmins are placed at the highest level. There are different types of Brahmins in the state. The native Namboothiris form THE highest rung of the caste ladder.
They are all clans that have moved from nearby states to Kerala several generations ago and have made it their permanent home. Next comes the Kshatriyas.

Then come the Ambalavasis that include clans like Chakyar, Nambiar disputed as some say they belong to the Nair sectMarar, Poduval, Warrier, etc.
They were traditionally those who performed various duties in the temples. The Nair sect is by far the largest and most diverse of all FC sects in Kerala.
