It was made clear to the institutes that these posts could only be filled by them on the basis that the commitment involved could be met from their existing resources and within the allocated budget. It is a matter for institutes to make the final decisions on the implementation of the programmes approved, including the filling of sanctioned posts and the management of the resources of the institutes generally.
