Yogi govt to Union MoS: Quota seats not turning ‘unreserved’, no interview rejection as ‘not suitable’

Responding to Union Minister of State (MoS) Anupriya Patel’s letter urging UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to end the practice of the reservation seats meant for SC, ST and OBC candidates becoming “unreserved” in government recruitment process, the Adityanath government has sent a detailed reply to her, stating that the quota posts remaining vacant after the selection process are not converted to unreserved posts and are carried forward to the next recruitment process.

Anupriya Patel is also the national president of the Apna Dal (Soneylal), which is a key ally of the ruling BJP in UP.

Before responding to Anupriya’s letter, the BJP-led NDA dispensation in UP collected detailed reports from different government bodies including the Commissions and the departments engaged the recruitment process. Based on these reports, the UP government’s Department of Appointment and Personnel sent a response to the Union MoS late Friday night.

In the reply, Additional Chief Secretary of Department of Appointment and Personnel Devesh Chaturvedi has cited such reports received from official entities where appointments are done directly though interviews.

“The government in its response has informed the MoS about the factual situation,” Chaturvedi told The Indian Express.

As per his letter, the UP Public Service Commission has informed the government that the interview process uses coding on the basis of which the name, reservation, category and age of the candidates remain undisclosed and that such personal information are not made available to the interview board.

Also, the interview board does not mention “not suitable”, the letter stated. Instead, it mentions the grading which is converted into marks to be noted in the mark-sheets.
