ANSWER

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)


(a) & (b): As per information received from 77 Ministries/ Departments including their attached/ subordinate offices, the representation of SCs, STs and OBCs in the posts and services under the Central Government as on 01.01.2016 is 17.49%, 8.47% and 21.57% respectively.

The Ministry/Department-wise representation of SCs, STs and OBCs (in percentage) as on 01.01.2016 is given in the Annexure-I.

Representation of OBCs in the Central Government services is less as compared to the percentage of reservation for them because reservation of Other Backward Classes (OBC) started in September, 1993.

As per available information, representation of OBCs as on 1.1.2012 was 16.55% which has now increased to 21.57% as on 01.01.2016. Therefore, there is an increasing trend in the representation of OBCs in the posts and services of the Central Government.

(c): Out of the 79 administrative Ministries/Departments required to submit data, 77 Ministries/ Departments have submitted data on the representation of SCs, STs and OBCs as on 01.01.2016. As regards data as on 01.01.2017, 70 administrative Ministries/ Departments have submitted such data. The Ministries/Departments collect data from all their administrative controlled units spreading across the Country and submit consolidated data to the Department of Personnel and Training.

(d) to (f): Ten Ministries/Departments having more than 90% of the employees in Central Government including their Public Sector Banks/Financial Institutions, Central Public Sector Undertakings etc., reported 92,589 backlog vacancies for SCs, STs and OBCs which arose upto 31.12.2016. Out of these, 63,876 vacancies were filled up during the period 01.04.2012 to 31.12.2016 and 28,713 vacancies of SCs, STs and OBCs remained unfilled as on 01.01.2017. Ministry/Department-wise statement is given in the Annexure-II.

Department of Personnel & Training has issued instructions to all Ministries/Departments to constitute an in-house Committee to identify backlog reserved vacancies, study of the root cause of backlog reserved vacancies, initiation of measures to remove such factors and to fill up such vacancies through Special Recruitment Drive.
