AP Secretariat SC and ST Employees Association has represented to the government that seniority should be the basis while considering the cases for promotion to the next category.

Association secretary M.Yedukondalu here on Friday said they gave a representation addressed to the Chief Secretary in the wake of a petition submitted by one M.V.L. Kali Kumar, Deputy Secretary to Government, that as SC, ST employees, who were promoted against roster under the Right of Reservation were becoming seniors to him. He thus urged the authorities that further promotions be given by virtue of merit and ability and not on the basis of seniority.

The SC, ST Employees Association said the rule of reservation in promotions with consequential seniority in favour of SCs and STs was being implemented in the State as per the provisions in the Article 16 of the Constitution.
