Manohar Lal Khattar, the chief minister of Haryana, stated on Wednesday that the Supreme Court was looking into the recent announcement regarding awarding reservations in the promotion to Class-I and Class-II Scheduled Caste (SC) personnel.
The state government will grant reservations in the promotion of SC personnel (Class-I and Class-II) on the model of the Central government employees, the chief minister had stated during a function held in Rohtak on June 12.
Speaking in the assembly, Khattar said the next hearing of the cases related to this matter in the Supreme Court is scheduled for August 17.
After the Supreme Court's decision is announced, he stated that all procedures pertaining to this matter will be finished and put into effect within three months.
On the final day of the monsoon session, during question time, the chief minister was responding to a query from MLA Bishambhar Singh addressing the state's reservation for SC advancement.
He said that the state administration had consulted LR to determine whether reservations for promotions may be made before the Supreme Court's ruling. He claimed that the LR had recommended the state government to wait for the Supreme Court's ruling.
The chief minister claimed that the government had also consulted the advocate general for guidance on this issue.
Khattar told the House that the promotion of SC employees (Class-I and Class-II) in Haryana will undoubtedly follow the well-known pattern of the Central government.
