The Ministry of Home Affairs has announced a significant change in the recruitment process for constables in the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs). In a recent statement, the Ministry revealed that the constable General Duty examination will now be conducted in 13 regional languages, including Hindi and English.
According to the Ministry, this decision is aimed at enhancing the participation of local youth in the CAPFs and fostering the use of regional languages. The examination, scheduled to take place from February 20th to March 7th this year, will accommodate approximately 48 lakh candidates across 128 cities nationwide.
This initiative, the Ministry emphasized, opens doors for youth from diverse linguistic backgrounds to pursue careers in the nation’s service. The inclusion of regional languages such as Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi, Malayalam, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Odia, Urdu, Punjabi, Manipuri, and Konkani alongside Hindi and English aims to provide equal opportunities to aspiring candidates across the country.
