Calling the deduction in vacancies a scam, students called campaign to re-add 587 posts.

Based on reports, RSMSSB Board prepared a list of total 12,319 candidates (Gen 4943, OBC 1866, SC 1841, ST 1531 and MBC 537) in selection. Whereas, the advertised vacancies including of General & OBC were 12,906.
