Reservation for Ex-Servicemen

Reservation for Ex-Servicemen

There is no provision for earmarking of posts exclusively for ex- servicemen therefore the data on the actual number of reserved posts and unfilled vacancies earmarked for the Ex-servicemen are not maintained. However, percentagewise reservations ranging from 10 to 24.5% of the total available vacancies in Group C & D posts in Government jobs and Public Sector Undertakings have been provided for the willing and eligible Ex- servicemen.

It is the responsibility of concerned organization to fill the vacant posts. However the government endeavours to explore every possible avenue for increasing employment opportunities for the Ex-servicemen through various initiatives including trainings and awareness programmes. Moreover, the State Governments have also been advised to fill up the vacancies reserved for Ex-servicemen expeditiously. Since the Department of Ex-servicemen Welfare has no mandate to monitor the job reservations for Ex-servicemen, the matter has been taken up with Cabinet Secretariat in consultation with Department of Personnel & Training to empower Department of Ex-servicemen Welfare to monitor the same through appropriate changes in relevant rules.

This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Shri MM Pallam Raju in a written reply to Shri Ananth Kumar and Shri Devji M. Patel in Lok Sabha.

  11. DINESH says

    Why Govt does not consider to give age relaxation up to the extent of service in Armed Forces for exam conducted by UPSC. Where as it is giving reservation in CPFO for Asst Comdt. post. Hardly any ex -service remain eligible for this post due to Age. Most of the personnel retired at the age of 40 . So govt should consider to give them age relaxation in these services also (without reservation).

    IBPS is conducting exam for Bank PO which is not classified to any group and it is non- gazetted post but age relaxation to extent of service is not given. where as in Clerical cadre it is given that is also a non-gazetted post.

    As per order issued (CCS&P) rules amendment on 05 Oct 2012.

    Is there any solution for this.
