Promotion Quota Bill

In this op-ed in today’s Indian Express, I add my own perspective on the promotion quota bill. Among other things, I argue that (a) there is no comprehensive data that conclusively establishes under-representation of Dalits in the senior bureaucracy, and (b) more importantly: even if there is under-representation, discrimination is not the only explanation for it.

This blog has previously debated the legal questions surrounding this issue here.
