 Most of the central public sector undertakings (PSUs) have failed to comply with recommendations pertaining to caste-based reservation such as keeping reservation rosters and filling of backlog vacancies meant for SCs and OBCs.

The National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC), which took review meetings with several PSUs, has found anomalies in areas like reservation rosters, non-filling of backlog vacancies meant for SCs and OBCs and appointment of liaison officers. NCSC asked the department of public enterprises (DPE) to instruct central PSUs to implement the recommendations. 
 
Madhukar Gupta, additional secretary in the DPE, ministry of heavy industry and public enterprises has advised the officers of PSUs to follow the guidelines devised by the department of personnel, public grievances and pensions and training (DoPT) in letter and practice. Gupta inaugurated a two-day workshop for the liaison officers of CPSEs regarding “Implementation of Reservation Policy in CPSEs” in Delhi.
 
In view of concerns raised by NCSC, it was decided to organise a training programme on the subject matter of 'Implementation of Reservation Policy in CPSEs' through Institute of Secretariat Training & Management (ISTM), an autonomous body under DoPT.
