Office of Director-General, Assam Rifles, has released the official notification announcing 1230 vacancies in Group B and C posts. According to the notification, candidates who have successfully passed Class 10 and 12 are eligible to apply for this recruitment drive. Now that the recruitment notice has already been issued, the registration process is scheduled to begin on September 11, 2021. Candidates who are interested in the recruitment drive must complete all the online registration formalities on the official website assamrifles.gov.in. The last date to submit the application form and pay the prescribed application fee is October 25, 2021.
Assam Rifles is a reputed and highly-respected paramilitary arm of the Indian Army. The recruitment process for Group B & C posts will take place in four exam stages – 1. Physical Efficiency Test (PET) 2. Online written exam, 3. Trade or skill test, 4. Detailed Medical Examination (DME).
According to the notification, the written and physical exams will be held from December 01, 2021. Candidates who pass the first two exams will be shortlisted to appear for the medical examination. For recruitment posts like a clerk and personal assistant, the trade or skill test will be held before the medical examination. This test will not award marks to any candidate but will only declare them pass or fail.
After the medical examination, officials from the Assam Rifles will release the Group B & C 2021 merit list. Shortlisted candidates will be instructed to join the Training Centre and instructions for the same will be issued based on the merit list. The list will be prepared based on the trade and category-wise distribution of vacancies allotted to different states and UTs. Candidates must bear in mind that the final selection process will be done based on the merit list position and the availability of vacancies under each post.
Candidates who get inducted into the Assam Rifles through the Group B & C 2021 recruitment drive will be paid their salaries along with permitted allowances in accordance with permissible pay scales. The official notification does not make a mention of this and hence, candidates may get to know their pay scales only after final selection.
As of now, the total number of vacancies for the Assam Rifles Group B & C 2021 recruitment process is 1230. The recruitment drive is being conducted for inducting tradesmen and tradeswomen into the paramilitary arm of the Indian Army. Interested candidates can apply for a variety of posts such as staff nurse, clerk, personal assistant, radio mechanic, armourer, etc, subject to eligibility criteria.
