I. INTRODUCTION
Market refers to the entire area over which the buyers and sellers of a commodity come in contact with each other in order to buy and sell it respectively. The contact may not necessarily connote their physical presence but just a strong network through which they are able to carry the exchange efficiently. One of the most vital conditions for a market to exist is some degree of competition among buyers and sellers. It is because of this rivalry that a market is able to survive.

 1. INTRODUCTION 
 Reservation in general term implies to an act of withholding, reserving or keeping back some of the seats for the upliftment in the status and standard of living of socially and educationally backward sections of the society. Reservation in Indian context can be defined as a form of affirmative action taken by the government whereby a percentage of seats are reserved in the public sector units, union and state civil services, union and state government departments and in all public and private educational institutions, except in the religious/ linguistic minority edu­cational institutions, for the socially and educationally backward communities and the Scheduled Castes and Tribes who are inadequately represented in these services and institutions.

Maintenance: Under Indian law, the right to maintenance is civil in nature but it is also placed under the criminal code and can be pursued therein. Under Hindu law, a wife has a right to be maintained during her lifetime as per the provisions of the Hindu Adoptions and Maintenance Act, 1956. In what can be called an attempt to reinforce the conservative idea of a Hindu wife, an “unchaste” wife is not entitled to separate residence and maintenance.
