The education ministry told the Parliament that of the overall figure, 549 reserved posts are vacant because universities declared “none found suitable during the last five years”. Five central universities have cited this reason for vacant reserved posts, including Jawaharlal Nehru University and the University of Hyderabad.

According to data shared in the Parliament, Banaras Hindu University (BHU) has the highest number of vacant teacher positions, across categories, at 576 – 108 for Dalits, 81 for tribal candidates, 311 for OBC, 53 for economically weaker sections, and 23 for PWD.
