NOIDA: Yadav Singh along with 83 others officials of Noida Authority have been demoted on Tuesday in view of the Supreme Court’s order refraining caste based promotions.   

Singh, the suspended former engineer-in-chief of the three Authorities in Gautam Budh Nagar the Noida authority has sent the revert order to the officials and the list will be sent to the Chief Secreatery Alok Ranjan Uttar Pradesh government.

Former engineer-in-chief now holds the post of senior- project- manager.However the details of the officers to take place of the vacant posts will be worked out in the meeting to be held in state capital Lucknow on September 3.     A senior officer at Noida Authority said “83 officials have been reverted to designations they held before November 15, 1997, in Noida authority. The promotions will be made very soon on the merits basis.” 

The move follows a Supreme Court verdict in April 2012 when it had upheld the Allahabad high court's decision to scrap the policy of reservations in promotions introduced by the Mayawati government. The Allahabad high court on January 4, 2011, had dubbed it "unconstitutional" and struck it down following at least 50 petitions by employees' associations from across the state.

In cognizance of the directions of the apex court, the Uttar Pradesh government had earlier this month approved a proposal to withdraw the promotion of all government employees who had been elevated under the 'controversial' reservation in promotion policy.

Thereafter, the state government had issued a government order (GO) on August 24 to draw up a list of gazetted officers as well as B and C-class employees who were promoted through the reservation provisions after November 15, 1997, and before April 28, 2012.

A committee had then been put into place in Noida and Greater Noida to scrutinize the files of all SC/ST employees who had taken advantage of reservation in promotion during the said period. The promotions that they received in the last 18 years were studied and the notches they are to be brought down from their current posts verified and designations notified.
