Many people in our country have been using their caste name or caste reference as prefix or suffix. My name is Srinivas. If my name is Srinivas Reddy or Srinivas shastry or Srinivas yadav or Srinivas Rao or Srinivas Goud, I am having caste reference in my name.Some people have the caste reference in their surname too.
Caste reference in the name is actually against the Constitution. It give choices to behave with jingoistic attitude. It hampers the equality in opportunity, livelihood,etc. It causes the discrimination. There by it is against the Article 14 and 15 of Indian Constitution.
People on knowing the caste name on listening the name of a person, behaves with partiality. He causes favour or loss, basing on the caste. In the
It is also cause of rift among the different communities, there by disturbing the national integration.
Many private companies are selecting the staff on the basis caste, there by denying the livelihood to other caste people.
More astonishingly, the salaries are also fixed on the basis of caste.
The persuasion of votes,seats in Indian politics is dependent on the caste of the persons, politicians and community groups. This has degenerated the quality of Indian politics and parliamentary democracy.

Hence, the caste reference from names have to be removed and shall not be allowed in the future in the interest of equality & national integration.
