Reservation system has been a part of India for a long period of time. Even during the king’s rule privileges were provided to certain kind of category of people. And ever since then with the pass of time this system is being followed through one or other mode. After Independence, this system was inserted in our Constitution of India where certain rights are provided for the weaker section of the society which includes Schedule Caste and Schedule Tribes. This paper focuses on the evolution of these rights and the amendments that were brought. The main issue that has been dealt in this paper is that whether reservation can be provided in regard with promotion in the jobs and also whether the right provided under the constitution is a fundamental right or not?
