I Support - Special protection/reservation for orphaned/abandoned children

According to Indian Constitution, there are Reservations for Minorities, Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Backward Classes, Other Backward Classes and those with physical disabilities, etc.
... Since orphaned/abandoned children are considered as caste less/religion less, they do not enjoy any scope of benefits under the reservation system in India (Which is predominantly based on caste & religion based quotas).
As per a survey, there are 2,32,46,000 (approx: 2.5 Crores) orphaned/abandoned children in India. (Ref:
As the Constitution of India states in article 15(4), children of the society that are most vulnerable to abuse and discrimination should be given the utmost priority while drafting secure systems / schemes / benefits. It is duly noted that social justice is not achieved at any levels for orphaned / abandoned children.
Hence there is a critical need for a Special Protection / Reservation Bill for orphaned / abandoned children.
