Carry forward of physically handicapped seat by cutting 01 ur seat from final result

The total vacancies for post were 12 and due to vertical reservation, 07 seats were reserved for STs, SCs, OBCs, and EWS and 05 seats was for UR category. 01 seat was reserved for horizontal reservation for PWd candidate.
and after examination, no suitable candidate was found to fill 01 PWd seat.
Therefore employer deducted 1 seat from UR category and made it backlog for next recruitment and gave selection only on 04 UR seats.

Is it the correct way of giving reservation to PWD candidate?

14.1 Reservation for backward classes of citizens (SCs, STs and OBCs) is called 'vertical' reservation and the reservation for categories such as PwBDs and ex-servicemen is called' horizontal' reservation. Horizontal reservation cuts across vertical reservation (in what is called interlocking reservation) and persons selected/promoted against the quota for PwBDs have to be placed in the appropriate category viz. SC/ST/OBC/Unreserved^depending upon the category to which they belong in the foster meant for reservation ofscs/STs/OBCs. To illustrate, if in a given year, there are two vacancies reserved for the PwBDs, and out of two PwBDs promoted, one belongs to Scheduled Caste and the other belongs to Unreserved, the SC candidate with benehmark disability shall be adjusted against the SC point in the reservation roster and the Unreserved candidate with benchmark disability against the unreserved point in the relevant roster. In ease none of the vacancies falls on point reserved for the SCs, the candidate under benchmark disability belonging to SC shall be adjusted in futureagainst the next available vacancy reserved for SC.

14.2 Since the PwBDs have to be placed in the appropriate category, viz. SC/ST/OBC/Unreserved in the roster meant for reservation of SCs/STs/OBCs, the application form (in respect of Departmental examination for promotion) for the post should require the candidates applying under the quota reserved for PwBDs to indicate whether they belong to SC/ST/OBC or unreserved.

Sir am not getting my answer, I have read the particular letter.

If any vacancy reserved for any category of disability cannot be filled due to non-availability of a suitable person with that disability or, for any other sufficient reason, such vacancy shall not be filled and shall be carried forward as a 'backlog reserved vacancy' to the subsequent recruitment year.

It is not known if SSC is having its own recruitment rules, but as per DOPT letter the reply given by me earlier is the ruling,.

T. Kalaiselvan, Advocate (Advocate)     13 April 2024

Even though both are central government organisations, they both are governed by their own regulations and rules hence you will find them to be different from each other
