Thus the universities will prepare a detailed list of present vacancies and position filled as per the decision.
Talking with Prahaar, Balasaheb Salve, Vice President, MFUKTO, said, “Earlier the subject based reservation policy was observed thus the vacant positions were filled under open category showing unavailability of the posts. But better late than never, the government has taken an important decision. Thus the backward cadres are happy about the decision,” he said.
