Now, 58 posts will be reserved for Scheduled Castes (SC).

"Today I have wonderful news to share with you. We have introduced 58 additional posts for the SC community in the Punjab Attorney General's Office. The hiring process will be completely transparent and will not include any recommendations," CM Bhagwant Mann said in a roughly translated tweet.
