However, such candidates can avail of the benefit of reservation as ex-serviceman for subsequent employment if he/ she immediately after joining civil employment, gives self-declaration/ undertaking to the concerned employer about the date-wise details of application for various vacancies for which he/ she had applied for before joining the initial civil employment as mentioned in the OM No: 36034/1/2014-Estt (Res) dated 14.08.2014 issued by DoP&T.

Such candidates must also acquire the status of an ex-serviceman within the stipulated period of one year from the closing date of receipt of application (i.e. 25-11-2019).

Explanation: An 'ex-serviceman' means a person:

  • who has served in any rank whether as a combatant or non-combatant in the Regular Army, Navy and Air Force of the Indian Union, and
  • Who either has been retired or relieved or discharged from such service whether at his own request or being relieved by the employer after earning his or her pension; or
  • Who has been relieved from such service on medical grounds attributable to military service or circumstances beyond his control and awarded medical or other disability pension; or
  • Who has been released from such service as a result of reduction in establishment;

Or

  • Who has been released from such service after completing the specific period of engagement, otherwise than at his own request, or by way of dismissal, or discharge on account of misconduct or inefficiency and has been given a gratuity; and includes personnel of the Territorial Army, namely, pension holders for continuous embodied service or broken spells of qualifying service;

 

or

 

  • Personnel of the Army Postal Service who are part of Regular Army and retired from the Army Postal Service without reversion to their parent service with pension, or are released from the Army Postal service on medical grounds attributable to or aggravated by military service or circumstance beyond their control and awarded medical or other disability pension;

  • A Matriculate Ex-Serviceman (which includes an Ex-Serviceman, who has obtained the Indian Army Special Certificate of education or corresponding certificate in the Navy or the Air Force), who has put in not less than 15 years of service with the Armed Forces of the Union shall be considered eligible for appointment to the reserved vacancies for ESM in Group “C” posts. Thus, those non-graduate Ex-Servicemen who have not completed 15 years of service as on the closing date for receipt of applications (i.e. 25-11-2019) or would not complete 15 years of service within one year from the closing date of receipt of applications (i.e. 25-11-2019) are not eligible to apply for this examination. Such ESM are not eligible for Group „B‟ posts.

Age relaxation/ ESM reservation is not admissible to sons, daughters and dependents of Ex-Servicemen. Therefore such candidates should not indicate their category as ex-servicemen.

  • Candidates who wish to be considered against reserved vacancies or seek age-relaxation must submit requisite certificate from the competent authority, in the prescribed format when such certificates are sought by concerned Regional/ Sub Regional Offices at the time of Skill Test/ Document Verification. Otherwise, their claim for SC/ ST/ OBC/ EWS/ PwD/ ESM category will not be entertained and their candidature/ application will be considered under unreserved (UR) category. The formats of the certificates are annexed with the Notice of this Examination. The certificate of disability issued under the Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act, 1995 (1 of 1996) will also be valid. Certificates in any other format will not be accepted.
  • A person seeking appointment on the basis of reservation to OBCs must ensure that he/ she possesses the caste/ community certificate and does not fall in creamy layer on the crucial date. The crucial date for this purpose will be the closing date for receipt of online application i.e. 25-11-2019.

 

  • Candidates may also note that in respect of the above, their candidature will remain provisional till the veracity of the concerned document is verified by the Appointing Authority. Candidates are cautioned that they will be debarred from the examination conducted by the Commission in case they fraudulently claim SC/ ST/ OBC/ EWS/ PwD/ ESM status or avail any other benefit.
