DISBURSEMENT OF SALARY/WAGES/PENSION TO THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES IN THE STATE OF KERALA FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST, 2018 ON ACCOUNT OF ONAM FESTIVAL.(Click here to view)

CENTRAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS SIT OVER 24 LAKH VACANCIES AMID DEBATE OVER JOB DROUGHT

In time of a raging debate over jobless growth, nearly 24 lakh posts are lying vacant with the central and state governments, data compiled from answers to various questions in Parliament show.
A Rajya Sabha question answered on February 8 shows that the largest chunk is the over 10 lakh vacant positions for teachers in elementary (9 lakh) and secondary schools (1.1 lakh).

Apart from the vacancies in the centrally sponsored Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, which provides assistance to states and Union territories to maintain the desired pupil-teacher ratio under right to education norms, the bulk of these vacancies are in the domain of the states and Union territory administrations.
A Lok Sabha question answered on March 27 quoting figures from the Bureau of Police Research & Development stated that there are 4.4 lakh vacancies in civil and district armed police.

The same source showed that an additional 90,000-odd positions vacant in state armed police, taking the total vacancy in police forces to 5.4 lakh across the country.

Law and order being a state subject, these positions are primarily under the state governments.


Railways has 2.5L vacancies among non-gazetted staff
Incidentally, among major economies, India has one of the lowest police-to-population ratios. This is often held to be a major factor in larger law-and-justice issues like pendency of cases and lower conviction rates because of slapdash investigations done by overburdened police. It is not surprising that the judiciary, with crores of pending cases, is also running well below full strength. A Lok Sabha question answered on July 18 points at over 5,800 vacancies in courts.

Answers to Rajya Sabha questions on March 14 and 19 and a Lok Sabha question on April 4 showed that there are over 1.2 lakh vacant positions in the defence services and paramilitary forces. Over 61,000 of these are in paramilitary forces while the aggregate figure for the three defence forces is over 62,000.

Then there are 2.5 lakh vacant posts among non-gazetted staff in the railways, the answer to a Rajya Sabha question on March 16 revealed. It, however, stated that two notifications have been issued in February to fill more than 89,000 of these vacancies.

A Lok Sabha question answered on March 28 points at over 54,000 vacancies in the postal department, another major government employer.

The health sector is another casualty of vacancies in sanctioned positions. A Rajya Sabha question answered on February 6 shows that there are about 1.5 lakh vacancies in these centres. About 16,000 are of doctors or specialists while others include nursing staff.

NO PROPOSAL FOR REMOVAL OF CREAMY LAYER FOR OBCS

            The Government has implemented the ‘creamy layer’ concept in pursuance of the Hon’ble Supreme Court’s order in the case of Indra Sawhney and others etc. vs. Union of India and others [(Civil) No. 930/1990]. At present, there is no proposal in the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment for removal of Creamy Layer.

            The Government has constituted a Commission on 2nd October, 2017 under article 340 of the Constitution to examine the sub-categorization of Other Backward Classes. The Commission commenced functioning with effect from 11.10.2017 i.e. the date of assumption of charge by the Chairperson. There has been no delay in constituting the panel.

            Certain States including Andhra Pradesh and Telangana have introduced sub-categorization within Other Backward Classes reservation quota. The sub-categorization adopted by these States is being studied by the Commission for Other Backward Classes to examine the issues of sub-categorization of Other Backward Classes in the Central List.

            This information was given by Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment Shri Krishan Pal Gurjar in a written reply in Rajya Sabha today.
