Enforce SC order on quota in promotions: govt

Supreme Court

Acting on the Supreme Court order, the Centre on Friday asked all its departments and state governments to implement reservation in promotion for Scheduled Caste (SC) and Scheduled Tribe (ST) employees.

The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) under the Ministry of Personnel issued an office memorandum ordering implementation of the Supreme Court order of June 5, which said the Centre is “not debarred” from making promotions in accordance with the existing law till it gives its final order on a special leave petition on the issue. In the office memorandum, the DoPT said, “The cadre controlling authorities of central government ministries, departments and Union Territories are to carry out promotions in accordance with the directions of the Supreme Court.”

“States are also advised to take necessary action in accordance with the above-mentioned orders passed by the Supreme Court,” it said.
