CAPF’s constable recruitment test to be held in 13 regional languages | India News

NEW DELHI: Lakhs of aspirants from non-Hindi speaking states who wish to join the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) as constables, will no longer be hindered by the language barrier, with the Constable (General Duty) recruitment test for CAPFs to be held in 13 regional languages, in addition to Hindi and English, starting this year.
For the first time, the question papers for the Constable (GD) examination for recruitment of constables in the Central forces like CRPF, BSF, ITBP and CISF etc, will be set not only in Hindi and English but also in Indian regional languages like Assamese, Bengali, Gujarat, Marathi, Malayalam, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Odia, Urdu, Punjabi, Manipuri and Konkani.
The first Constable (GD) examination for CAPFs in 15 languages — to be conducted by Staff Selection Commission (SSC) from February 20 to March 7, 2024 — will see 48 lakh candidates attempting it across 128 cities.
A senior government officer told TOI that the move — an initiative of home minister Amit Shah to increase the participation of local youth in CAPFs and to promote regional languages — is bound to help rural youths who despite being competent, are at a disadvantage vis a vis their city-educated competitors, due to lack of good command over English and Hindi. “Offering this exam in 15 languages will improve the regional candidates’ selection prospects and offer them equal opportunity at employment, while also increasing the exam’s reach among candidates from across the country,” said an officer.
Constable GD Examination is one of the flagship examinations conducted by SSC in which lakhs of youths from all over the country participate. The home ministry had last year signed an MoU with SSC to facilitate conduct of the examination in the above mentioned 13 regional languages, in addition to Hindi and English.
