    We can guide you on the legal aspect only once you can apprise us of the reason/grounds due to which you are not being considered for the promotion.


    We would suggest that you demand a reason in writing for denying you the promotion as you meet the set criteria. 


    Once you are given a reason in writing, thereafter, we would first suggest you to make representations to the Company to consider your promotion. If the same is rejected, then you can file a civil suit for declaration that you are entitled to promotion as per the Office criteria.


    Kindly contact us for any further details and action.
