Common Examination to Recruit Constables in Paramilitary Forces



SSC Common Exam

As part of reform in the police recruitment process at the Centre, the government has – for the first time — decided to conduct a ‘common examination’ to recruit constables in paramilitary forces. The first such examination will be held in May-June to recruit over 54,000 constables and the entire process will be completed in six to nine months. Under the common examination system, a total of 49,070 constables (general duty) will be recruited for BSF, CISF, CRPF and SSB whereas an additional over 5,000 will be recruited for ITBP and Assam Rifles.

“Candidates of border districts and naxalite/militancy affected areas in different states including Jammu and Kashmir will get separate reservation in the recruitment,” said a ministry of personnel official, adding the move will help bring youths of such areas into the mainstream. Unlike the earlier system where respective paramilitary forces used to recruit constables on their own, the ‘common examination’ will be conducted by the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) at different centres across the country.
