The highest recommendation was made by RRB with 1,16,391. SSC and UPSC recommended 13,995 and 4,399 respectively, according to the written reply.

The reply also stated that RRB, SSC, Ministry of Defence, and Postal Service Board are already in the process of recruiting 3,10,832 people to fill the vacant positions, out of this, 27,652 will be filled for defence civilians.

The reply also mentioned that recently all the departments and the ministries were requested to take time-bound actions in order to fill in the vacant posts in various departments and their respective attached/ subordinate offices. The reply said, “To reduce the recruitment cycle, recruiting agencies have switched over to computer based online test, interview for non-gazetted posts has been discontinued and a provisional appointment is being made pending verification of antecedents of the candidates”.
