To bring about social justice, the admission in technical, medical and other scientific institutions of brilliant students belonging to “forward” communities is restricted, so as to provide admission for “backward” community students. This leads to curtailing opportunities for brilliant forward community students to contribute to the scientific and technological development of the country and this in turn leads to slower economic growth. As both social justice and technological/scientific/economic development are important, the intake in the prestigious institutes should be increased so as to ensure that brilliant students are not denied admission.
Similarly in employment in government, the recruitment should be enlarged so as to see that all meritorius candidates(forward or backward classes) are recruited. Promotions should not be given routinely even if it is to meet social justice.The candidates have to be made to earn the promotion(and even increments)by good work, both qualitatively and quantitatively.
