Group-wise estimated number of vacant posts of regular Central Government Civilian Employees as on 01.03.2012 is as follows:-
Erstwhile Group D posts have been categorized as Group C after implementation of 6th CPC.
No such decision has been taken by the Government to reduce certain percentage of posts annually. As per the Office Memorandum issued by the Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) on 18.09.2013 on ‘Expenditure Management – Economy measures and rationalization of Expenditure’, posts that have remained vacant for more than a year are not to be revived except under very rare and unavoidable circumstances and after seeking clearance of Department of Expenditure. Individual Ministries/Departments have to take necessary action to fill up vacant posts in their Departments.
