Quota for Scouts, Guides and NCC cadets in group ‘D’ posts
Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions in written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha...
There is no quota or bonus marks prescribed for recruitment of Scouts, Guides, NCC cadets and certificate holders of National Service Scheme (NSS) for recruitment to Group ‘D’ posts of Central Government.
There is no such proposal of fixing quota or bonus marks for NSS certificate holders, under consideration. However, a scheme exists in the Central Government for appointment of meritorious sports persons to Group ‘C’ and ‘D’ categories in the Civil Posts/Services.
Under this Scheme, the Ministries/Departments can appoint meritorious sports persons playing any of the 40 Games listed in the Scheme, to the extent of 5% of the direct recruitment vacancies to be filled in a year. This was stated by Shri Prithviraj Chavan, Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions in written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today.
