MHA announces 10 per cent reservation in CISF jobs for ex-Agniveers

New Delhi:

The Union home ministry has announced 10 per cent reservation for former Agniveers in vacancies in the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), a week after it notified a similar quota for them in the BSF.

The ministry also notified relaxation in the upper age limit depending on whether they are part of the first batch or subsequent batches of Agniveers.

The announcement was made through a notification after amending the rules made under the Central Industrial Security Force Act, 1968, (50 of 1968). “Ten per cent of the vacancies shall be reserved for ex-Agniveers,” the notification said.
