The Patna High Court on Tuesday set aside a government order relating to promotion of employees belonging to Schedule Castes and Schedule Tribes in government jobs.
Justice V Nath pronounced the judgement on the writ petition of one Sushil Kuar Singh.
Justice Nath quashed the order of 2014 after finding that it was not in conformity with a Supreme Court judgement in M Nagaraj case in 2006.
The 2006 order of the apex court had defined condition for providing reservation in promotion in government jobs on caste line.
