# Why IBPS decreased number of seats for UR Candidates in PO III

This post is written by Pardeep Kumar, it may or may not reflect +BankExamsToday views.

I am writing this article to show how IBPS has reduced the number of seats for unreserved category in IBPS PO 3.

Total vacancy declared by IBPS on 1/4/2014 including PWD seats.
• SC - 3208
• ST - 1827
• OBC - 5799
• General - 10846
Thus total seats in PO 3 = 21680.
UR = 10846/21680 = 50.03%
SC + ST + OBC = 10834 = 49.97%

Out of which (208+390+458=1056) are PWD seats. HI, VI and OC are not separate vacancies .

Thus seats left for non PWD = 21680-1056=20624.

As per rule 50.03% seats for UR and 49.97% for SC, ST and OBC. Thus ideal number of allotments in each category should have been excluding PWD.

SC + ST + OBC = 10306
Unreserved = 10318

But actual allotment figures are excluding PWD

SC - 3183
ST - 1824
OBC - 5667
UR - 9950
(3183+1824+5667+9950)=20624.
(10674+9950)

Actual number of PWD seats taken from each category

SC = 3208-3183 = 25
ST = 1827-1824 = 3
OBC = 5799-5667 =132
UR = 10846-9950 = 896

Thus PWD breakup= 25 SC + 3 ST +132 OBC + 896 UR
Out of 1056 PWD seats only (208+247+58)513 got filled.Thus now only 543 PWD seats are empty

Thus instead of 10318 Unreserved candidates got only 9950. Difference of 368 seats.

Thus biggest difference is observed in unreserved category. It is because 896/1056 PWD seats taken from Unreserved category. Similar thing happened in clerk.80%-85% PWD seats taken from unreserved.

Thus effective reservation increased to 10674/20624=51.76 instead of 49.5.

Thus instead of 10318 UR got only 9950. 368 is a big figure. 368 less allotments for already crowded Unreserved category.
