No proposal for giving reservation in Government jobs in the ratio of population
While answering to a question in Lok Sabha on 9th July 2014, Minister of DoPT Shri DR.Jitendra Singh said in a written form as follows…
Department of Personnel and Training is the nodal department for formulating policies, inter-alia, on reservation in services for Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes. It is for each Ministry/Department to implement the orders of reservation policy scrupulously. Complaints from individuals regarding non-implementation of reservation policy are forwarded to the concerned Ministries/Departments for appropriate action.
Moreover, Liaison Officers have been appointed in all the Ministries/Departments and offices under the control of Heads of Departments to ensure due compliance of reservation policy. Instructions also exist that Scheduled castes/ Scheduled Tribes employees can directly submit their complaints to National Commission for Scheduled Castes and National Commission for Scheduled Tribes, as the case may be.
As per decision of the Supreme Court, total reservation for Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes cannot exceed the limit of 50%.
