New Delhi, July 5(ANI): The Centre has approved a revised scheme for recruitment of constables in Central Para Military Forces. The new scheme aims at making the process of recruitment more objective and maximizing the use of technology in recruitment.
The application form will now be designed centrally in the OMR sheet so that it can be scrutinized promptly through computer. The Physical Efficiency Test will now be only qualifying in nature and will not carry any marks. The written test will consist of OMR - based objective type multiple-choice questions. The Question papers will be set centrally. Interview will be discontinued. A website will be opened along with a help line and a complaint line, giving telephone numbers and SMS-based assistance.
No officer against whom departmental proceedings for major penalty is pending will be associated with the recruitment process. Similarly, an officer against whom charges of bungling in previous recruitment have been proved will not be associated with the recruitment process for the next five years. No officer belonging to the state in which the recruitment is being done will be a member of any recruitment board for that state. The biometric methods will be used at all stages of recruitment.
Constabulary forms the major component of Central Police Forces. In 2008, about 18000 vacancies of constables were filled in various Central Police Forces. (ANI)
