UP Cabinet clears longstanding reservation for sportspersons in govt jobs
The Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh government has accepted the longstanding demand for reservation to sportspersons in the state government jobs. Sportspersons can now be recruited directly on Group B posts, while a 2 percent horizontal reservation in seats will also be given.
The proposal for allowing a quota to sportsperson in government jobs has been cleared by the state cabinet.
As per the decision, 24 posts of Group B from various departments are being taken out of the purview of the public service commission. These seats will be offered directly to sportspersons on the basis of their performance at the international level and participation in renowned sports competitions. The rules for this will be drafted separately.
Similarly, for those not covered under Group B rules, a 2 percent reservation within reserved categories will also be made in Group C posts and the recruiting agency will work out the rules for this.
The government will allow an out-of-turn promotion, twice in the career if any sportsperson within the system wins a medal which will be applicable for Group C employees and once for Group B recruits.
The cabinet also approved the UP Police (Skilled Player) Recruitment and Out of Turn Promotion Rules, 2021 for recruitment and out-of-turn promotion of sportspersons in the police.
