“If the promotion of scheduled caste, scheduled tribe, or general class employees is disrupted, the department concerned may make further promotion without the permission of the finance department,” he said.

The minister said that the promotion of the state government employees has been stalled since 2015 as a case is pending in the Supreme court regarding the issue. He also said with the promotion to higher posts, employment opportunities will be created in the lower ranks.

“The opinion of the advocate general and the departments of law, finance, scheduled castes, and scheduled tribes were taken before formulating the new promotion policy to avoid all legal complications,” the state law minister added.
