No review of order on SC/ST quota in job promotions: Supreme Court

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to set up 7-judge bench to review its 2006 order on the SC/ST quota in job promotions.

In a unanimous verdict, the apex court ruled that there will be no reservation in promotion for SC/STs in government jobs.

“There is a need for quantifiable data to give reservation,” the apex court said.

The court concluded the Nagaraj judgement does not need to be referred to a larger bench.

Supreme Court also said there is no need to collect data on SC/ST in reservation in promotion in government services.

The verdict was delivered by a five-judge Constitution bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra.

Justices Kurian Joseph, R F Nariman, S K Kaul and Indu Malhotra were also part of the bench that had reserved the verdict in the case on August 30.
