Jharkhand government has ordered state government job recruiting bodies not to include those reserved candidates name in general merit list who are getting benefits of reservation (age relaxation, more attempt etc) , despite these candidates getting equal marks to general candidates. A notification regarding this has been issued and it was implemented with immediate effect. It has been seen that many candidates despite appearing as a reserved candidates and getting benefits of reservation in the examinations, got selected in general category. For example, a reserved candidate got benefit of age relaxation, but got selected in general category, despite his age had crossed that of general category. Due to this trend many general category candidates failed in the competitive examinations. Seeing this trend, general candidates had approached state government to mend the law on the line of Central government. Central Government has already made notification in this regard. Although reserved category candidates had opposed general candidates demand, saying that they should be considered general category if they got equal marks. But state government supported general category candidates observation. So, now those candidates who will apply as a reserved candidates and get reservation benefits, will be considered only in reserved category merit list.
