The entering of caste/category in the exam forms or mark sheets generates prejudice against a particular caste/category while the examiner or evaluator belongs to a different caste or category. It also generates favouritism for the caste/category to which the examiner or evaluator belongs. This practice of mentioning caste/category where it is not needed is actually giving acting as a deterrent to fair practice of evaluation all over the country in the educational institutes. Caste/Categories are actually needed when some special benefit is given to a particular category. But this record can be maintained by the administrative section of the institutes/universities/colleges/schools. What is the need of quoting one's caste/category in the Mark sheets or results????
