In terms of provision contained in para 204.9 of IREM VOL, formulation of panels for Group ‘B’ posts through Selections should consist of employees who have qualified in the said Selection and it should correspond to the number of vacancies for which the Selection was held. Similarly, in the case of Panels formed through LDCEs, names of candidates are arranged in the order of merit on the basis of total marks secured by them in commensuration with the number of vacancies.
