Supreme Court clears way for SC/ST quota in job promotions

The Supreme Court on Wednesday said its 2006 verdict putting benefits of quotas in job promotions for SC/ST employees need not be referred to a seven-judge bench. The apex court also turned down the Centre's plea that overall population of SC/ST be considered for granting quota for them. The unanimous judgement was pronounced by a five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra.
