RESERVATION IN PROMOTIONS NOT A RIGHT: SC
NEW DELHI: The state is not dutybound to give reservation in promotion to Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe employees, the Supreme Court said on Friday.
A bench of justices Dipak Misra and Prafulla C Pant said courts can’t issue directions to the government to collect data regarding these groups’ alleged under-representation in various services to enable them to claim quota benefits. After analysing a series of verdicts on reservation in promotion, it said any such order would amount to entering into the domain of the legislature and the executive.
