"While I am totally in favour of persisting with caste-based reservation in the job sector, I also feel that reservation should be restricted only to the entry level.

"Thus, inducting a candidate in service through a caste-based reservation quota is fine, but the quota system should have no place when it comes to giving promotions," he says in the book.

"All promotions must be given strictly on the basis of merit."
