Reservation and other benefits available to ESM in SSC CGL?

Staff Selection Commission releases the notification of SSC CGL every year in which different posts are released for different departments of the Central Government. As we have told in our previous post about ESM Reservation in Government Jobs. But in SSC CGL there are different posts for different groups. Retired Persons from Defense do not get the benefit of Reservation Quota in all posts.

10% reservation is given to Defense Person only in Group C posts. Now let's talk about those posts in which ESM reservation can be obtained. Along with this, we will also tell you that according to the 7th pay commission, that post comes in which pay band.

Sub Inspector 25500 - 81100 ( Pay band - 4

All the posts given above are Group C posts. In which Retired Defense Person gets 10% reservation. For your information, let us tell you that this post is in different departments. For example, Tax Assistant is in both the CBDT and CBIC departments. That's why ESM gets reservation in all these posts, regardless of which ministry it is in.

Apart from this, ESM also gets other benefits. One of them is the relaxation in age limit. In these, the maximum age for some posts is 30 years and for some posts it is 27 years. Defense Person gets 3 years relaxation in age limit.

To calculate the age of Defense Person, his service is removed from his present age. The age left after that is considered his age. For example, if the present age of a defense person is 40 years. If he has served a total of 20 years, then his age is considered to be 40 – 20 = 20 years.

Relaxation of 3 years means that if the maximum age limit for a post is 30 years then the maximum age for ESM is 33 years. Now let's talk about those questions which are asked again and again.
