Is it end of reservation? Supreme Court order: Nearly 10,000 dalit govt employees may be demoted in Karnataka

Is it a signal of ending quota based reservation in India? The Supreme Court order: Nearly 10,000 dalit govt employees may be demoted in Karnataka.

On February 9, the Supreme Court had struck down the consequential seniority in promotions awarded by the Karnataka government for SC/ST employees since 1978. It fixed a three-month period for demoting those promoted under the reserved category. The government can file an appeal within the period.

Karnataka State Employees Association president BP Manje Gowda said 7,000-10,000 officials and employees may be moved to lower ranks, considering 18% of the posts in each of the 65 departments have been reserved for SCsSTs.

In reply to the order Congress government is getting ready to challenge the order. One minister said, We are in a sensitive and tricky situation. If we fail to stand by the dalits, they will brand our party anti-dalit, which could have a huge impact on our election prospects.And if we decide to fight for them, the other backward and upward communities will view us with contempt.
