Most of the SC/ST community is under represented in executive level positions in Government sector. There is enough quantifiable data on inadequate representation of SC and ST employees which will be soon provided by Central and state government.
Govt. of Karnataka had constituted a committee under Additional Chief Secretary Smt K. Rathna Prabha to make the study 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.
SC/ST Govt. Employees are facing inexplicable hardships due to discrimination in workplace. SC/ST Employees are going to be demoted to the lower cadre. A 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 entire depressed and oppressed community.
In light of this we request supreme court of India to review it's earlier verdict and allow "Reservation in Promotions"
