Supreme Court allows quota in SC/ST employees' promotion
GUWAHATI: The Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed the Centre to go ahead with the reservation in promotion for SC/ST employees in accordance with the law.
A vacation bench of judges Adarsh Kumar Goel and Ashok Bhushan accepted the Centre’s submission that the entire process of promotion has come to a 'standstill' due to the orders passed by various high courts and the apex court.
In April, Union Minister and BJP ally Ram Vilas Paswan, who has emerged as the government's key spokesperson on Dalit issues, told reporters that the government will move the Apex Court for the repeal of its directions which have halted the reservation for these communities in promotion.
