No independent assessment has been done. However, for the purpose of improving number of recruitments of ESMs, advisories have been issued, from time to time, to all concerned Department/CPSUs/Banks/State Governments for conducting special drive to fill up backlog of vacancies reserved for ESM and for adoption of relaxed standards of qualifications for their recruitment. Liaison Officers have also been appointed in various Departments/PSUs/Banks to ensure implementation of reservation policy for ESM.
