Recruitment in Armed Forces

Recruitment in Armed Forces

There is no proposal under consideration of the Government to introduce reservation for Scheduled Castes / Scheduled Tribes / Other Backward Classes for recruitment in the armed forces. Recruitment in the armed forces is based on merit and is open to all citizens irrespective of class, caste, community, region or religion. Nature of operational and administrative challenges under which the armed forces function precludes reservation for recruitment in the armed forces.

This information was given by Defence Minister Shri Manohar Parrikar in a written reply to Shri Tapas Paul in Lok Sabha today.
