NEW DELHI, June 5 - The Supreme Court today gave the go-ahead to the Centre for providing reservation in promotion in government jobs for employees belonging to the scheduled caste (SC) and scheduled tribe (ST) category in �accordance with law�.

In a relief to the Centre, the apex court gave the order after taking into account the government�s submissions that the entire promotion process has come to a �standstill� due to the orders passed by various high courts and also direction by the apex court for �status quo� in a similar matter in 2015.

A vacation bench comprising Justices Adarsh Kumar Goel and Ashok Bhushan said the Centre was not �debarred� from making promotions in accordance with law in the matter subject to further orders.

�It is made clear that the Union of India is not debarred from making promotions in accordance with law, subject to further orders, pending further consideration of the matter,� it said.

The government said there were separate verdicts by the high courts of Delhi, Bombay and Punjab and Haryana on the issue of reservation in promotion to SC/ST employees and the apex court had also passed different orders on appeals filed against those judgements.

�We will say you (Centre) can go ahead with promotion in accordance with law,� the bench told Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Maninder Singh, representing the Centre. � PTI
