CRPF asks for blueprint of police recruitment from states

Published: May 12,2009

New Delhi, May 12 The CRPF is now in the process of revamping its recruitment procedure after CBI arrested some of its senior officers, including an Inspector General, for alleged corruption in the recruitment for the ranks of the newly formed specialised anti-naxal force - COBRA.

According to sources in the largest paramilitary force of the country, the CRPF has now asked for a blueprint of police recruitment procedure being followed by various states.

The force has already received responses from about five states while others have promised to do so after the General Election.

Sources said that as per one school of though within the force, the entire recruitment procedure could be cut short by removing the mandatory interview before the final selection.

However, others believe that interview cannot be dispensed with as the seniors get a chance to check whether the personnel shortlisted are really seriously worth selection or not.

Sources said the force is waiting for more responses and hopes to come out with a new recruitment policy in the next three months.

" Some of the states who have responded with their blueprint including southern states do not have interview level and the application process is online,"sources said.
