Reservation in promotions is not a fundamental right : SC

“The state governments are not bound to make a reservation and even the courts can’t issue a mandamus directing States to provide reservation,” said the bench of Supreme Court comprising Justices L. Nageswara Rao and Hemant Gupta.

The apex court further said,  “As per the law laid down by this Court, there is no doubt that the State Government is not bound to make reservations.

The state government is not in any obligation and it has the absolute discretion to decide whether or not to provide for reservation in jobs or reservations in promotions the Supreme court judgment said.

There is no fundamental right which inheres in an individual to claim reservation in promotions.
