Reservation Policy COMPENDIUM – DOPT Order

Issue of instructions on Reservation for the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes in services under the Government of India

Reservation Policy – DOPT Order

      DOPT has clearly stated in this OM, “some appointing authorities are continuing to implement such outdated and non-existent instructions. Keeping all these aspects in view this Department has decided to issue consolidated instructions on Reservation for the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes in supersession of all the existing instructions on the subject. The proposal is not to change any aspect of policy on the subject but only to consolidate all the instructions and present them in easy to understand form/language.

A draft OM has been prepared which covers all the aspects of reservation policy as existing at present. However, before issuing the proposed OM, it has been decided to put it in public domain and invite comments on it. If any person feels that the proposed OM does not include any of the existing instruction or any instruction included in the proposed OM is not in consonance with the existing instructions, may point out the same and send his comments to the undersigned by 12th July, 2010.”

We have reproduced full text of the both OMs and main headlines of the Reservation Policy.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

   Subject:   Issue of instructions on Reservation for the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes in services under the Government of India.

***

      The undersigned is directed to say that instructions on Reservation for the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes in services under the Government of India are contained in various OMs issued from time to time by the Ministry of Home Affairs and this Department. Some of the instructions so issued have become outdated and are not in operation at present. It has, however, been observed that some appointing authorities are continuing to implement such outdated and non-existent instructions. Keeping all these aspects in view this Department has decided to issue consolidated instructions on Reservation for the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes in supersession of all the existing instructions on the subject. The proposal is not to change any aspect of policy on the subject but only to consolidate all the instructions and present them in easy to understand form/language. A draft OM has been prepared which covers all the aspects of reservation policy as existing at present. However, before issuing the proposed OM, it has been decided to put it in public domain and invite comments on it. If any person feels that the proposed OM does not include any of the existing instruction or any instruction included in the proposed OM is not in consonance with the existing instructions, may point out the same and send his comments to the undersigned by 12th July, 2010.

DRAFT OM

Subject: Instructions on Reservation for the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other
Backward Classes in services under the Government of India.

***

The undersigned is directed to say that it has been brought to the notice of the Government
that there is lot of confusion amongst appointing authorities and others about the policy on
Reservation for the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes in services
under the Government of India. It has also been observed that though a number of instructions
issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs and this Department on the subject have become
outdated and are no more in operation, some Ministries/Departments etc. continue to follow such
non-existent instructions. It has, therefore, been decided to issue, in supersession of all Office
Memoranda on the subject issued so far, instructions on Reservation for the Scheduled Castes,
Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes in Services as given in Appendix to this OM.
2. All Ministries/Departments are requested to bring the contents of this OM to the notice of
all concerned.
