The Supreme Court will expeditiously hear the Jarnail Singh vs Lachhmi Narain Gupta case on the question of whether the concept of ‘creamy layer’ should apply to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes job promotions following a request from the Union government. 

The case is at the heart of the issue of reservation in promotions. The expeditious hearings will bring relief to the government when Parliament reconvenes on March 2. The Centre has been under attack from the Opposition which has demanded clarity on the issue of reservation in promotions for SCs and STs.
