Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and OBCs and Persons with
Disabilities. This is following a review of the vacancy position in
these categories by the Union Minister of State for Personnel, Public
Grievances & Pension, Shri V. Narayansamy recently. All
Ministries/Departments have been directed to fill up all the vacant
posts in these categories by March 31, 2012.
The Government has been concerned about non-filling up of large number
of backlog vacancies reserved for SCs/STs/OBCs/PWDs. Therefore, two
Special Recruitment Drives – one for SCs, STs and OBCs another for PWDs
were launched in 2008 and 2009 respectively. The Drives enabled various
offices to fill up about 26750 backlog vacancies but large number of
such vacancies are remaining to be filled up.
