Special Relaxation For Nepalese Living in India To Join the Army

Published

on

The demand for height relaxation for applicants to the armed forces has been raised often by the local politicians in the past. Many experts in the field also state that this is a way of encouraging more youth to join the army. Lately, the Home Ministry has planned to relax the height limit for the Nepalese community residing in India who aspire to join the paramilitary forces.

Kiren Rijju, Minister of State, Home Ministry, in his last public address at the Haritalika Teej Mahotsav praised the Nepalese community for their contribution in the Indian culture. Their enormous support in preserving the remote cultures of the northeast has compelled the Home Ministry towards considering the Nepali community for an age relaxation in the field of the army.

While the Scheduled Tribes get a relaxation of a few centimeters in paramilitary forces, the minimum height for all candidates belonging to ST category is 162.5 centimeters for males and 150 centimeters for females. The minimum height for General Category candidates is 170 centimeters for males and 157 centimeters for females.

The minister said the relaxation in the height limit for Nepali candidates will also be the same as given to Scheduled Castes and Tribes in the paramilitary forces from now onwards.
