The Department of Personnel and Training (DOPT) had launched a Special Recruitment Drive in November 2009 to fill up the backlog reserved vacancies of persons with disabilities and it was stipulated that all the backlog vacancies will be filled by 15.7.2010. As the progress of the Drive till that date was not satisfactory, the period of the Drive was extended upto 30th June 2011.
Now, the Hon. Minister of State for Personnel, has reviewed the Drive once again and found that a large number of backlog vacancies were still to be filled up. He directed that the Drive should be re-launched to fill up the remaining backlog vacancies by the end of this financial year. Therefore, the DOPT has decided to re-launch the Drive to fill up the backlog reserved vacancies of persons with disability which have not been filled up till now. All the Ministries/Departments are requested to make concerted efforts to ensure that the remaining backlog reserved vacancies of persons with disabilities are filled up by 31st march, 2012.
