After HC’s stick Meghalaya Cabinet approves roster system to ensure reservation

The state government had already put in place a roster system for implementing the 4% reservation for People with Disabilities (PwDs) in the state.

The Meghalaya Cabinet on Tuesday approved the roster system for implementation of the reservation policy in ‘letter and spirit’.

Informing this after chairing the meeting, Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma said that the government has finally approved the roster system to ensure that the reservation policy is implemented in letter and spirit.

CM Sangma further stated the state government had already put in place a roster system for implementing the 4% reservation for People with Disabilities (PwDs) in the state.

The decision was taken in compliance with the order of the Meghalaya High Court, which had stayed all recruitment processes of the state government due to the absence of a roster system in the state.

Meanwhile, hearing a petition on April 5, a bench headed by Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee described the absence of a roster system as a “deplorable state of affairs”, which leaves open possibilities of nepotism and arbitrariness, and worse forms of subversions.

Asked as to when the process of job recruitment will re-start, Sangma said the state government will submit its affidavit before the Meghalaya High Court during the hearing to be held today.

Notably, the court hearing said that further recruitment processes for all posts in the State will remain in the sense that no further appointments will be made until the roster system is put in place.
