Subject : Re-launch of Special Recruitment Drive for filling up backlog reserved vacancies of the Persons with Disability.
A Special Recruitment Drive was launched in November 2009 to fill up the backlog reserved vacancies of persons with disabilities as existing on 15-11-2009. While launching the Drive, it was stipulated that all the backlog vacancies will be filled by 15-07-2010. 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 30th 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 of persons with disability which have not been filled up till now.
3. 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. Meanwhile progress reopen 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.
