In considering OBCs asbackward, therefore, there is an implicit juxtaposition of the inferiorsituation of those who belongs to these castes as against the relativelyadvantageous position of upper caste Hindus. Also implicit is the assumptionthat the inferiority of the OBCs is largely a consequence of their low socioeconomic position. The low socio-economic status and low position in the castehierarchy lead to other disadvantages and disabilities such as poor access toeducation, low motivation for education, low educational aspiration, absence ofopportunity for occupational mobility etc.
