How is the reservation for Persons with Disabilities computed?
The following ruling regarding computation of disabilities in regard to the reservation for persons with disabilities applies to every exam whether it’s a Staff Selection Commission (SSC) exam like the Combined Graduate Level (CGL) Exam, the Combined Higher Secondary (10+2) Level (CHSL) Exam or any exam like the Civil Services Exam (IAS Exam) conducted by UPSC.
How is the reservation for persons with disabilities computed?
Reservation for persons with disabilities in case of Group-C posts shall be computed on the basis of total number of vacancies occurring in all Group-C posts in the establishment, although the recruitment of the persons with disabilities would only be in the posts identified suitable for them.
The number of vacancies to be reserved for the persons with disabilities in case of direct recruitment to Group ‘C’ posts in an establishment shall be computed by taking into account the total number of vacancies arising in Group ‘C’ posts for being filled by direct recruitment in a recruitment year both in the identified and non-identified posts under the establishment.
Since reservation is limited to identified posts only and number of vacancies reserved is computed on the basis of total vacancies (in identified posts as well as unidentified posts), it is possible that number of persons appointed by reservation in an identified post may exceed 3 per cent.
But reservation for persons with disabilities in Group ‘A’ posts shall be computed on the basis of vacancies occurring in direct recruitment quota in all the identified Group ‘A’ posts in the establishment. The same method of computation applies for Group ‘B’ posts.
