Filling of backlog vacancies of SC/ST

Filling up of vacancies, including backlog reserved vacancies, is a continuous process.

Government is aware that there are backlog reserved vacancies in various Departments / Ministries.

As per information received from Ministries / Departments, 48,034 backlog reserved vacancies for Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes were filled up during the Special Recruitment Drive held for filling up of backlog reserved vacancies which concluded on 31.3.2012. As reported by various Departments/Ministries, 19,676 backlog reserved vacancies were also filled up during the period April, 2012 to December, 2014.

The Government constituted a Committee in July, 2013 under the Chairmanship of Secretary, Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment to make an in depth analysis of the reasons for backlog of filling up of reserved vacancies and suggest measures to enhance the employability of reserved category candidates. Based on the Report submitted by the Committee, action points namely constitution of in-house committee to identify backlog reserved vacancies, to study the reasons for non-filling up of backlog reserved vacancies, review of educational qualifications, conducting Special Recruitment Drive and pre-recruitment training programmes, wherever required, have been finalized and communicated to the Ministries /Departments to make concerted and continuous effort to reduce the backlog reserved vacancies.

Since action is under process for filling up of backlog reserved vacancies, the question of action against officers for not filling up the backlog may not arise at present.

This was stated by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office, Dr. Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question by Smt. Jharna Das Baidya in the Rajya Sabha today.
