Territorial Army Result will be published on Aug 31 onwards

Hello Friends!! I hope all of you are waiting for Territorial Army exam results which was conducted in the last month. The results was to be declared by August 18 but due to some unknown reasons the result might have been postponed to August 31. So, you need to wait few more days to get your results. There could be many reasons for the postponement of results and one of the reason may be high number of applications than expected. You will be receiving a mail from respective head quarters regarding your selection and you can also get a call from head quarter.

As there were many applicants this year for written exam than compared to last year there could be delay in correcting the OMR sheets of the candidates so this might be the reason behind postponing the exam result to August 31.

All the selected candidates in the written exam will get an e-mail with subject “PIB-Call Letter” or “Call Up Notice For PIB” or they may also receive a call from respective head quarters on August 31.

Keep your mobile switched on and do not ignore any calls as the call will come from Landline number.

Good Luck !

Woman can also join and serve in Territorial Army: Centre to HC next hearing on Sept 22

Women can join and serve in Territorial Army (TA), in its railway engineer regiments, and will also be considered for honorary commissions, the Centre has told the Delhi High Court.
The government has made the submission in an affidavit filed before a bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal which is hearing a PIL seeking recruitment of women in TA, which is the second line of defence after the regular army.

The bench will hear the matter on September 22.

TA is an organisation of volunteers who receive military training in order to be mobilised for the country's defence in case of an emergency.
The Centre has said there is no discrimination in the selection procedure, eligibility criteria and terms of service of women candidates or officers in TA.

"The women officers in TA have been promoted to the rank of Brigadier, which is the highest rank applicable to TA officers," the affidavit said.

With regard to TA's 2015 recruitment advertisement, which mentioned only gainfully employed men and not women, the affidavit has said the advertisement was for grant of commission in infantry units of TA.

It has also said that recruitment of men in infantry units of TA is a policy decision taken as per the Territorial Army Act and the policy can be amended only if the law was amended.
With regard to the honorary commissions given to some politicians, celebrities and sportspersons, the government has said such people receive no financial benefit nor do they perform any military duties or command troops. Instead they act as "brand ambassadors" of the army to motivate the youth to join the armed forces.
This provision was initially applicable to male citizens only, but the TA Directorate decided to amend the policy and as on date, both men and women can be considered for grant of honorary commissions, the affidavit said.

The government has sought dismissal of the PIL, filed by law student Kush Kalra, saying his contention that women were not being allowed to join the TA was incorrect.
In his reply to the government’s affidavit, Kalra said, “In the prospectus, which is obtained under RTI by the petitioner, on page 9 and 10 the Eminent Personalities of Territorial Army are provided and there is no mention of any female in the list, which on the face puts down the claim of respondents that women can join Territorial Army.

“In every advertisement for recruitment to Territorial Army, the Directorate of Territorial Army has mentioned that ‘Only Male Citizens of India’ can apply for the post of officer in Territorial Army,” he has said.

In his plea, filed through advocate Jyotika Kalra, the law student has alleged “institutionalised discrimination” by the TA on the ground that women were allegedly not recruited into the organisation.
