UPSC to recruit Rehabilitation Officer and other posts, details here

The Lok Sabha was informed that 91 persons selected through the civil services examination in 2021 could not be assigned to government positions.

Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) administers the civil services test annually to select officers for the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS), Indian Police Service (IPS), and other positions. Until December 7, 2022, 91 of the 748 individuals recommended by the UPSC based on the civil services examination-2021 (CSE) could not be assigned to any service.

33% of BTech seats vacant in 2021-22; engineering college approved seats drop

This was due to factors such as limited preference, the results of a medical examination, an unsuccessful claim of reserved category, and candidates withdrawing their candidacies in accordance with the CSE Rules-2021, according to a written response from the union minister of state for personnel, Jitendra Singh.

Six applicants nominated for CSE-2021 whose parents worked for state public sector undertakings have been categorised as belonging to the other backward classes (OBCs) (creamy layer), he said. His remark was in response to a question on “whether any OBC candidates have not been allotted service based on the absence of equivalency for posts held by their parents in state public sector undertakings, in order to determine their non-creamy layer status.”

The report of the expert committee established by the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment to evaluate concerns linked to creamy layer equality among the socially and educationally backward classes (SEBCs) is under review, according to the minister.
