Subject: Re-launch of Special Recruitment Drive for filling up backlog reserved vacancies for Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes.
A Special Recruitment Drive was launched in November, 2008 to fill up the backlog reserved vacancies of SCs, STs and OBCs as existing on 1.11.2008. While launching the Drive, it was stipulated that all the backlog vacancies will be filled by 30.6.2009. It was, however, noted that progress of the Drive till that date was not satisfactory. Therefore, the period of the Drive was last extended upto 30 th June 2011.
2. On expiry of 30th June, 2011, the Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions reviewed the achievements of the Drive once again and found that a large number of backlog vacancies were still to be filled up. He desired that the Drive should be re-launched to fill up the remaining backlog vacancies by the end of this financial year. It has, therefore, been decided to re-launch the Drive to fill up the backlog reserved vacancies which have not been filled up till now.
3. All the Ministries/Depaihnents are requested to make concerted efforts to ensure that the remaining backlog reserved vacancies of SCs, STs and OBCs are filled up by 31st March 2012. Meanwhile progress report of the Drive as on 30.6.2011 may be sent to this Department immediately so that the Cabinet may be informed of the present status of achievement of the Drive.
