As part of model code of conduct ahead of Assembly polls, the Election Commission has imposed a ban on filling vacant posts in government bodies till the completion of election process on December 24, 2012.
Statutory bodies like UPSC and GPSC have been exempted from the ban, EC sources said. The ban includes recruitment of around 8,800 candidates as Vidya Sahyak (para-teachers).
However, EC officials said that in special cases, government boards or corporations could send their proposals to the state Chief Electoral Officer who would forward it to the CEC for consideration. Ad hoc appointments will not be entertained, sources said.
