(c):    Instructions exist that timely action be taken for filling up of vacancies and that even anticipated vacancies be included in the proposal being sent for appointment.

Government is making all efforts to fill up backlog reserved vacancies.   Instructions have been issued that if sufficient number of SC/ST candidates do not become available to fill up vacancies reserved for them in the first attempt of recruitment, a second attempt should be made for recruiting suitable candidates belonging to the concerned category in the same Recruitment year or as early as possible before the next recruitment.  Special Recruitment Drives are launched from time to time for filling up of the backlog vacancies.  More than 60,000 backlog vacancies of SCs and STs were filled during the last Special Recruitment Drive(SRD).

Another drive was launched in 2008 which has concluded on 31.3.2012.  The Ministries /Departments have been requested to send the final progress report of the Drive.  This was for the first time SRD was launched to fill up backlog vacancies reserved for OBCs also. The drive has concluded on 31.03.2012. As per information received so far, more than 43,000 reserved backlog vacancies have been filled up.
