Sub: Brochure on Reservation for the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes In Services.
The undersigned is directed to say that an updated Brochure on Reservation for the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes in Services of the Government of India has been posted on this Department’s website www.persmin.nic.in.
2. It may be recalled that the Government had introduced post based reservation vide this Departments OM No. 36012/2/96-Estt(Res) dated 2.7.1997. The OM, however, did not prescribe formats of registers for maintaining reservation on the basis of revised instructions, which have now been prescribed by the Brochure. Part I of the Brochure contains all the provisions on the subject, including reservation registers / reservation roster registers, in a simple and easy to understand style and is complete in itself. Nevertheless, relevant Office Memoranda in Part II thereof may be referred to in case of any doubt.
