    The age relaxation for Ex-servicemen for the Superintendent (General) is 5 years or 5 years(after deducting no. of years of military service). Kindly confirm.

    • Hi Thomas,
      The notification doesn’t say anything clearly about this, it does mention that deduction of no. of years of Military service would be applicable for the Junior Superintendent post (page no. 6 of the notification) but not for the Superintendent (General) post. However, in another explanation given below the table of the age relaxation, the notification says- “For Ex-Serviceman the Upper Age limit for the postcode 6 (here it has included postcode 6 as well, unlike in the table above ) to 9 shall be relaxed as on last date of receipt of application by allowing the deduction of length of actual Military Service from his actual age and the resultant age should not exceed the maximum age limit prescribed for the Post by more than 3 years”. So, the notification says to things at two places. We would suggest you to contact CWC for the final clarification.

  7. Hi Sir .For the post Superintendent (General) whether PGDM is accepted.

    • Hi Ajay,
      PGDM won’t be accepted. You can go through Point:3 of page 5 of the notification for your reference.
