As on 1.3.2001

Group A

90905(2.89)
Group B
151727(4.35)
202262(6.42)
Group C
2227233(63.87)
2856615(90.69)#
Group D
1034826(29.68)

#Erstwhile Group D posts have been categorized as Group C after implementation of 6th CPC.

It will be seen that the number of Group C and erstwhile Group D employees has marginally gone down in percentage terms. Posts are created as per functional requirements and requirement of posts is assessed periodically by cadre reviews and work measurement studies.
