There is a demand for reservation in respect of SC & ST candidates in promotion. OBC demand vvill not be far behind.VVith reservation at the time of entrance this demand may appear to be too much. Those vvho demand reservation base their argument on the selection on basis of 'merit' that discriminates against the SC & ST candidates.
My contention is that as merit determination in the government department is a highly flavved process and in majority of cases so called merit based promotion does not add to total efficiency and may actually reduce it. So it is time that government shifts to seniority based promotion. This vvill also reduce corruption as it ill take avvay from the politician the tool of favouring their pet bureaucrats on 'alleged' grounds of merit
