Patna HC axes SC/ST quota in promotions

The Patna High Court on Monday quashed Bihar's decision to provide reservation in promotions to the Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes (SC/ST) government employees.

After hearing a petition by Sushil Kumar Singh and two others challenging the decision, a division bench of the court ordered the 2012 policy be scrapped.

The court's order is a setback for hundreds of SC/ST officials.
