CAPF Constable GD exam to be held in 13 regional languages: Home Ministry

New Delhi: The Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has announced that it will conduct the examination for constables (general duty) for the Central Armed Police Force (CAPF) in 13 regional languages in addition to Hindi and English on Saturday. After this decision, now the questions in the examination will also be asked in Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi, Malayalam, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Odia, Urdu, Punjabi, Manipuri, and Konkani. This new format of language will be implemented in January 2024.

Actually, the Ministry of Home Affairs has taken this step to promote the participation of local youth in CAPFs and to encourage regional languages. With this decision, lakhs of candidates will be able to give exams in their mother tongue and regional language. Along with this, their chances of selection will also increase. Let us tell you that Constable GD is one of the major exams conducted by the SSC. Every year, lakhs of people give this exam.

There has been a dispute over language in Tamil Nadu.

Let us tell you that Tamil Nadu CM MK Stalin had objected to the non-inclusion of Tamil in the digital exam for recruitment in the CRPF (a part of the CAPF exam). He had also accused the government of discrimination in a letter to Union Home Minister Amit Shah. He wrote in the letter that making only English and Hindi compulsory is one-sided. This decision prevents many candidates from Tamil Nadu from appearing for the exam. This will violate their constitutional rights.
