UP Govt junks reservation-based promotion for SC & ST in State Govt departments
UP government scrapped the reservation-based promotion for the socially backward classes – SC and ST in the State government departments. This reservation system was brought in by former CM of UP Mayawati even after objection by the Allahabad High Court. As per its verdict on April 27, 2012 the Supreme Court verdict has annulled the reservation in promotion, and thus, the UP government now has reversed the system. Thus, now there will be one seniority list and the promotion will be given as per the seniority list.
The conclusion to junk the Mayawati’s government’s order got Cabinet approval via circulation and the government also adjudicated to bring an Ordinance to enforce the policy with prompt effect.
