As per the government norms, if a newly created post remains vacant for “more than two/ three years,” it is ‘deemed abolished’. To prevent that from happening, several measures are being taken, according to the ministry. “To reduce the recruitment cycle, recruiting agencies have switched over to computer-based online tests, interview for non-gazetted posts has been discontinued and provisional appointment is being made pending verification of antecedents of the candidates,” the Parliament was informed.
