In case all posts in State Government reserved for EWS are not filled up by candidates belonging to the EWS category during the recruitment process due to a shortage of eligible candidates, the balance posts will be filled up from candidates of the unreserved category.

For any year, if vacancy earmarked for EWS cannot be filled up due to non-availability of a suitable candidate belonging to EWS, such vacancies for that particular recruitment year shall not be carried forward to the next recruitment year as backlog.
