This paper provides a corrigendum to resolve a couple of minor issues in the algorithm presented in Sarkar et al. (Real-Time Syst., 2011). The first issue relates to the postponement of execution of a task when its own ‘deadline of postponement’ have not been crossed. The second issue concerns the updation of certain scheduler data structures.
