Adjustment of SC ST candidates for promotion

The following queries on SC / ST Reservation were raised in Lok Sabha:
Whether those Scheduled Castes (SC) and Scheduled Tribes (ST) candidates who have qualified against open seats for promotion cannot be adjusted against the vacancies meant for scheduled castes..?
Whether Government, proposes to take any concrete steps to do justice to the SC and ST candidates in this regard?

Reply to these queries were given by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office Shri. V.Narayanasamy in the Rajya Sabha on 29th November 2012.

 The Supreme Court in the matter of R.K.Sabharwal v/s. State of Punjab has held that reserved category candidates who are appointed/promoted in Government jobs on their own merit shall be adjusted against unreserved quota and reservation quota vacancies shall be filled in addition to the above. The Central Government has been following the principle laid down by the Supreme Court.
