Promotions put on hold for six months

The state government has put on hold promotions for its employees across all cadres for the next six months as the Supreme Court has recently struck down the consequential seniority in promotions awarded for SC/ST government employees.

The apex court had held that proportionate representation of posts for SC/STs is not sufficient to grant promotion and had directed the government to prepare a revised seniority list.

Temporarily put on hold

In a circular on Wednesday, the Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms said that the government’s move to temporarily put on hold promotions would also apply to employees of universities, autonomous institutions of the government, commissions, board and corporations.
