As per the extant policy, three per cent (3%) of the vacancies in case of direct recruitment to Group A,B and C; and three per cent (3%) of vacancies in case of promotion in Group C posts in which direct recruitment, if any, does not exceed 75%, is reserved for persons with disabilities of which one per cent (1%) each is reserved for persons suffering from (i) blindness or low vision, (ii) hearing impairment and (iii) locomotor disability or cerebral palsy, in the posts identified for each disability.
Promotions to the higher grades are made as per provision of the relevant Recruitment Rules. In some of the Recruitment Rules, provisions exist for promotion either on the basis of seniority in service or through Limited Departmental Competitive Exams. The candidates, who do not qualify the Limited Departmental Competitive Examination are promoted on the basis of their inter-se-seniority in the feeder grade.
However, in cases where the departmental promotion test is the only mode of promotion, proposal to give promotion on the basis of the seniority or merit in service alone is not under consideration.
