Uttar Pradesh Sub Inspector recruitment 2019 will be conducted for 5,000 vacancies. A recent report suggests that the UP Police Recruitment and Promotion Board will release notification for UP SI 2019 in September. The written exam for Sub Inspector recruitment will be conducted in November, and thereafter physical test will be organized in February 2020.
The board plans to publish UP SI recruitment 2019 notification by the end of next month. Either by the end of November, or in the first few weeks of December, the board will conduct written exam for all applicants. Physical efficiency test consisting of running / race shall take place in the second month of next year. For organization of the recruitment process, UPPRPB is considering tenders from various agencies at the moment. The process is anticipated to complete this month.
One of the positive steps being taken in the UP SI recruitment 2019, if the reports are to be believed, is the addition of exam centers in Sonbhadra district. This step is being taken to make it easier for candidates from scheduled tribe category to appear in exam.
The board was unable to find suitable candidates from scheduled tribe category despite the category having suitable reservation last time. To ensure that access to exam centers is not an issue that deprives talented individuals from the police job, this time new exam centers will be introduced for them.
Besides exam center for written exam, venue for running/race will also be allocated in the same district. Steps such as these ensure proper representation from all categories and further the motive of inclusion for all in the police force; a necessary factor for ultimately having a better police force in the nation.
Another important change anticipated in UP SI 2019 recruitment will be the change in qualifying marks. It was reported last month that the minimum qualifying marks in written exam of Sub Inspector recruitment will be reduced from 50% to 35%.
This, qualifying marks, was another factor that the board suspected in having fewer suitable candidates in the selection process. The presence of negative marking in exam makes it difficult for candidates to score above 50%. In the state level cabinet meeting held last month, the proposal was presented to allow qualifying marks to be reduced to 35% in each paper, however 50% in overall aggregate would be required.
The last time that Uttar Pradesh Police recruited for the Sub Inspector post was in 2016, for which the processes concluded in 2018. In that recruitment, there were 3,000 vacancies of sub inspector. Candidates with graduation, between 21 to 28 years of age could apply. There was a written exam with four papers of 100 marks each. The papers were hindi, general knowledge, numerical and mental ability test, logical aptitude test.
