Cabinet clears SC/ST quota in job promotions

The Cabinet on Tuesday cleared a Bill which provides for the reservation to the Scheduled Castes (SCs) and Scheduled Tribes (STs) in government job promotions. The Bill envisages reservation-based promotions for SC/ST candidates in government jobs.
The government will introduce the Bill in Parliament on Wednesday or Thursday.
Congress's new-found ally, the Samajwadi Party had earlier lashed out at the Centre saying that while reservation of jobs for SCs/STs and OBC candidates was fine, reservations in promotions would not be such a good idea. Samajwadi Party leaders indicated that they wanted a similar provision for the OBCs in job promotions.
Government sources have told Samajwadi Party leaders that OBCs will also be extended this facility in the near future.
Meanwhile, Bahujan Samaj Party leader Mayawati, who has always been in support of the Bill, welcomed the move.
"We welcome it. We struggled a lot for this. The BSP had first raised it in April in Rajya Sabha following which the Government agreed to an all-party meeting," said Mayawati.
