NEW DELHI: The personnel department will issue a direction to all states to follow reservation for SC/STs in promotions in government jobs, Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan said on Wednesday, announcing a decision taken by an informal group of ministers.

Paswan said the Supreme Court’s nod to the Centre to resume quotas in promotions will be applicable to government jobs at the Centre and in states. “There was some confusion following queries as to whether the SC’s direction will be applicable only to the Central government. There is no confusion now. Both the Centre and states will follow the procedure of reservation in promotion,” the minister said.

‘Merit-based, no quotas for lateral entry’

The GoM under home minister Rajnath Singh met on Wednesday, which was attended by law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, social justice minister Thawarchand Gehlot besides officials from the Prime Minister’s Office and the department of personnel and training (DoPT).

Sources said the government’s decision for lateral entry of professionals as joint secretaries in 10 departments also came up during discussions.

DoPT officials said these posts are over and above the existing sanctioned positions, a source said. There is no provision for reservation since these are contractual jobs for three to five years and based on talent.

Stating that the caste system is the biggest evil in India, Paswan said there is a need to do more to end this. “Our party, LJP, has maintained that there has to be reservation in all jobs, both in government and private sectors. We also maintain that there should be reservation for people who enter into inter-caste marriages. The real change will happen when people from higher castes allow their daughters to marry Dalits,” he added.
