Aug 23, 2013 12:40 IST

The Union Government on 21 August 2013 decided to set up a committee to analyse the reasons behind the huge backlog in vacancies under reserved categories.

A 20-member committee headed by the Secretary, Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment, will suggest steps to enhance the employability of reserved category candidates.

The committee members are from various Central Government Ministries, including Ministry of Home Affairs, Department of Personnel & Training, Ministry of Human Resource Development, Ministry of Railways, and the Union Public Service Commission and the Railway Recruitment Board. The committee will submit its report within three months.

An analysis of data and consultation with various Ministries indicated that lack of finishing skills or interview skills, less availability of professionally qualified persons, less identification of posts for persons with disabilities, dearth of professionally qualified persons, especially in hearing-impaired category of disability, were some of the reasons for less number of SCs, STs, OBCs and persons with disabilities in the Government sector.
