Over 10 per cent of the force will be kept reserved. Officials have asked each department to fill up the details of their representatives in a software. 

“We have written to 40 departments including Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad municipal corporations. The departments are supposed to respond in two days and if they fail to do so, we can take action against the departments,” added an official from the District Administration Department.
