Reservation in Promotion for SCs and STs in Government Jobs - Rajya Sabha Passes the Amendment Bill

Reservation in Promotion for SCs and STs in Government Jobs - Rajya Sabha Passes the Amendment Bill

Rajya Sabha Passes Constitutional Amendment Bill 

The Government of India has always been concerned about the welfare of downtrodden especially Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes. As a part of the affirmative action, reservation in promotion had been available to the SCs and STs since 1955. However, some decisions of the Supreme Court like in Indra Sawhney, Veer Pal Singh Chauhan and S. Vinod Kumar cases had caused certain effects on the scheme of reservation in promotion for SCs and STs. To overcome these effects, the Government had brought four Constitutional amendments, namely, 77th, 81st , 82nd and 85th amendments.
