Post a Comment

The Delhi High Court recently ordered the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) to grant a one-time, three-year relaxation in the age limit for candidates applying for the position of head constable. The court stated that the delay in publishing the vacancy for the post, which occurred after a gap of six years, affected the prospects of candidates seeking appointment in the forces. The bench also criticized the authorities for their laxity in publishing the vacancy. The last date to apply for the head constable position is January 25, 2022 and the court has directed the CRPF and the Central Government to issue a corrigendum on or before that date allowing for the age relaxation.

Additionally, the court also emphasized the need for transparency and fairness in the recruitment process and urged the authorities to ensure that there is no discrimination or bias in the selection of candidates. This ruling is a positive step towards ensuring that candidates are given equal opportunities to apply and be considered for the position of head constable in the CRPF.


It is important to note that this age relaxation is only a one-time measure, and candidates should take advantage of this opportunity to apply for the position if they are otherwise eligible. There are a total of 1458 vacancies for the positions of Assistant Sub Inspector and Head Constable in the CRPF, and interested candidates can apply online at crpf.gov.in. This includes 143 vacancies for Assistant Sub Inspector Steno and 1458 posts for Ministerial Constable.


Furthermore, the court also highlighted that this ruling could have a positive impact on the diversity of the CRPF, as it may open up the opportunity for a wider pool of candidates who may have been previously excluded due to their age. This age relaxation can also benefit candidates who may have faced personal or professional setbacks that have hindered their ability to apply for the position in the past. It can also be beneficial for candidates who may have experience and skills that would be an asset to the CRPF, but had not yet reached the age limit for the head constable position.


It's also important for the candidates to check their eligibility for the post such as Educational Qualification, Age, Physical standards and other criteria before applying for the post.


Now conclusion, the ruling by the Delhi High Court to grant a one-time, three-year relaxation in the age limit for candidates applying for the position of head constable in the CRPF is a positive step towards ensuring that candidates are given equal opportunities to apply and be considered for the position. It can also have a positive impact on the diversity of the CRPF and it can be beneficial for the candidates who have faced personal or professional setbacks. It's also important for the candidates to check their eligibility for the post before applying for the position.
