This is in response to the article "Peace formula taking shape: staggered quota, more seats".

Several knowledgeable persons have already pointed out weaknesses in infrastructure makes increasing the number of seats an impossible option. Another equally well-known factor is the already existing rate of unemployment among persons with engineering, technology degrees and post-graduate and research degrees in science.

For example, "India Science Report" by Rajesh Shukla (Principal Author), National Council of Applied Economic Research, 2005 [ISBN: 81-88830-07-0].

Also read "Too many techies, too few jobs" by Urmi Goswami in The Economic Times Online, Sunday, January 25, 2004, (http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/articleshow/msid-444806,prtpage-1.cms).

In fact, experts have suggested "reducing" the number of engineers and other professionals.
