As per Gauhati High Court ruling, "NO PERSON CAN CLAIM FOR PROMOTION UNDER RESERVED QUOTA IF HE/SHE HAS ALREADY BEEN APOINTED UNDER THE SAID QUOTA".
No person from reserved category can use his/her quota twice for the same job purpose(appointment and promotion).

If the exercise of collecting and analyzing quantifiable data showing backwardness of the class and inadequacy in representation of that class in services is not done then the government cannot give promotion to anyone on the basis of reservation. If such an exercise is done, reservation in promotion would be fully valid. See M. Nagraj, Suraj Bhan Meena and U.P. Power Corporation (All SC decisions).
