A report commissioned by the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment recommended that the caste surnames or details giving out religious or social background of candidates should not be revealed at the interview stage of civil services and other state or central examinations.

The report said that chances of discrimination are high at the stage of personality test/interview in civil services and other services both at the centre and state levels.

The report recommends reservation in the private sector to give job security on par with the advanced sections of the society.

“In the absence of such direct information, social background of candidates is guessed to a great extent from the names like the Nayer, lyer, Iyengar, Naidu, Menon, Bandhopadhyaya, Chathurvedi, Gupta, Patel, Panda, etc,” it argued.
