IN ORDER to monitor recruitment of women in government, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has directed all ministries and departments to submit a consolidated report including attached or subordinate offices on the total number of posts and employees group-wise and gender-wise as on March 31, 2009 latest by August 31, 2009. Indicating that it would be an annual process, the department has further said that the consolidated annual position as on March 31 of every year may also be furnished thereafter by May 30 of that year. In fact, the government has initiated steps to ensure better representation of women members on various committees or boards concerned with the selection to posts in Central government and also to monitor the trend in recruitment of women. DoPT has further written to the secretaries of all ministries/departments of government of India to instruct all appointing authorities to scrupulously observe that selection committees should compulsorily have one woman member for making recruitment to 10 or more vacancies. Even if vacancies against which selection is to be made is less than 10, efforts should be made in finding a woman officer for inclusion in such committees or Boards, the directive said. It further said that in the event of such an officer not being available in the ministry or department itself, there is no objection to nominating lady officer from any other office at the same station.
