The spirit of Indian Constitution was to develop India into a socialist state. A socialist state is the one that protects and uplifts its weaker sections. It strives to reduce the social and economical inequality between the people. Our Constitution has incorporated several provisions that are in the benefit of the weaker sections of the society. Based on these provisions the central and state governments implement plans or frame laws to uplift society. This concept was incorporated into the Government of India Act of 1935. In the primitive society in India, the backward castes had been denied all kinds of social and economic endowments. Hence, they had been lagging behind in the process of development. There are numerous reservations like reservation for women, reservation for physically challenged, reservation for economically backward class, reservation for Scheduled Castes etc as author focused. Judiciary being the guarding of the fundamental rights the citizen has more than often been brought to play a very significant role in matters pertaining to reservation policy. In the present study author has examined the various issues of reservation.
