In India there is reservation (for government employment and admissions etc) based on caste and income among other types.
For caste based reservation mainly following categories are there —
- SC (scheduled caste)
- ST (scheduled tribe)
- OBC-NCL (Other Backward Class — Non creamy layer)
- General-EWS (Economically Weaker Section)
- OBC-CL (Creamy layer)
- General-others (non EWS)
My questions —
Is there default caste of child born out of inter-caste marriage? Or parents get to choose caste for child from among castes of theirs?
What will be the reservation category of a child when—
- One parent belongs to non-reserved category and other belongs to reserved one.
- Both parents belong to different reservation categories.
