On 9/2/2017 Supreme Court verdict had struck down reservation in Promotions for SC/ST Govt Employees of Karnataka. 

Govt. of Karnataka had constituted a committee under Additional Chief Secretary Smt K. Rathna Prabha to make the study on the observations elucidated in the verdict of Supreme Court relating to:

(1) Inadequacy of representation of SC/STs in the civil services.
(2) Backwardness of SCs/STs.
(3) Effect of Reservation in Promotions in the state Administration.

 The committee in its study had pointed out that in majority Govt Departments there has been inadequacy of representation. SCs/STs are Socially, Economically and culturally still backward. And the overall efficiency of the administration had not been affected by Reservation. The committee under additional Chief Secretary Smt K. Rathna Prabha has recommended for continuation of Reservation in Promotion for SC/ST Govt Employees.

In fact the committee’s report had convinced Govt of Karnataka to protect the constitutional interest of SC/ST Govt Employees. With a view to safeguard the constitutional interest of SC/ST Employees Government. of Karnataka has passed SC/ST promotions Bill titled "Karnataka Extension of Consequential Seniority to Government Servants Promoted on the Basis of Reservation (to the post in the civil services of the state) Bill, 2017"

Now the bill is pending with the president of India.

SC/ST Govt. Employees are facing inexplicable hardships due to discrimination in workplace. If the bill is not passed  many promoted SC/ST Employees are going to be demoted to the lower cadre. Senior ‘A’ Grade promoted SC/ST Employee might be demoted to the level of ‘C’ Grade. The Consequences of this demotion would be an insult to SC/ST employees which can affect the morale of the already depressed and oppressed community.

In the light of this, we sincerely request the president of India to  consent and sign the SC/ST Promotional bill: 2017
