Effect of cadre restructuring on carry forward vacancy
February 20, 2013 at 5:48 pm #68514
What is the effect of restructuring of cadre strength on the carry forward vacancy of SC/ST under new recruitment rules?
Let me elaborate. As per the existing recruitment rules sanctioned strength of post of ‘Sr. Officer’ is 100. In this year (2013) 4 SC vacancies have remained unfilled by DPC because of nonavailability of the eligible officers from the feeder grade (‘Jr. Officer’). So, these 4 SC vacancies will be carried forward to the next year (2014), leaving scope for early filling up by the SC candidates who are presently working in the post of Jr. Officer and will be eligible for promotion in 2014. Now, in next year (2014) the cadre restructuring is done for all the posts of the department, including posts of Sr. Officer & Jr. Officer, sanctioned strength for each post is also changed, and NEW RECRUITMENT RULES are formed for each posts. In this situation what will be the fate of those 4 carry forward SC vacancies in the post of Sr. Officer in year 2014 under new RR and new sanctioned strength? Whether they will still be treated as ‘carry forward vacancies’ in new set up or be considered as current vacancies?February 22, 2013 at 4:20 pm #77011
In my opinion, after cadre restructuring and implementing of new recruitment rules, the carry forward reservation should not be taken into consideration.
Is it possible to take care of this while restructuring of cadre?February 22, 2013 at 6:58 pm #77014
Thanks to nemo for his valuable comments! I also think so. However, I have not seen any definite rules to resolve the issue. Carry forward vacancies are created with respect to a certain strength of a post under a RR. When the post strength has been changed and new RRs have come into force and control the promotion from feeder post, the old set up would have no existence!February 28, 2013 at 3:45 pm #77106
Following stipulations in the DOP&T’s OM No. 28011/6/76-Estt, Dated 24th June, 1978 imply that the carry forward vacancies would cease to continue and emerge as current vacancies for new cadre strength in the first year under new RR :
“A new roster will have to be started in the following cases:
(i) From the date the recruitment rules are notified in the gazette.
(ii) When there is an amendment to the Recruitment Rules which changes the percentage allotted for the various modes of recruitment.”
