Restriction on direct recruitment-
There is a restriction on direct recruitment to the extent that it should not exceed 3% of the total cadre strength.
The authority to relax the condition rests with DoPT. It has now been decided to do away with this restriction. The Cadre Controlling Authorities are, however, advised not to resort to any bulk recruitment as it would create a bulge in the structure leading to stagnation at later stage. This may be kept in view while projecting recruitment planning.
