Once the candidate has been given his/her first available preference, he/she will not be considered for the other options.

The reserved vacancies will be filled up separately from amongst the eligible SCs, STs, OBCs, and PH candidates who are lower in merit than the last general candidate on merit list of unreserved category but otherwise found suitable for appointment by relaxed standard.
