Centre concedes to KTR’s demand on CAPF recruitment test

Following the notification asking the Central Armed Police Force (CAPF) exam aspirants to choose either English or Hindi as the medium, Minister K T Rama Rao has asked the Union Home Minister Amit Shah to consider conducting the CAPF constable recruitment test in regional languages. Conceding to KTR’s request, the centre agreed to conduct the exam in regional languages.

The Centre has agreed to conduct all the central government recruitment tests in Telugu, Assami, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi, Malayalam, Kannada, Tamil, Oriya, Urdu, Punjabi, Manipuri and Konkani from January 1, 2024.

Mr Rama Rao argued that it was gross injustice to conduct the central government examinations only in Hindi and is against the spirit of the Constitution in his letter to the Union Home Minister. On November 18, 2020, chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao too wrote a letter to the central government in this regard, the minister reminded.
