4095 SSB Jawans to be Promoted
On 2nd March, Union Home Ministry approved promotions of 4095 Constables in SSB to Head Constables. SSB is a Border guarding Force with strength of 70, 000 strong women and men, manning Indo-Nepal & Indo Bhutan Borders day and night.
Fewer promotional aspects is one of the main grievance among the constabulary of SSB. This order will not only ease the issue of stagnation in promotions but also improve career prospects for new recruits in the Force.
With this move one Constable from each section will be promoted to rank of head constable increasing operational efficiency considerably. Relieving pressure off lower management of the force.
This petition was filed by SSB along with ITBP and Assam Rifles in 2013 requesting for promotion of one constable in each section to havaldar rank which was approved by Union Home Ministry and will be implemented with immediate effect.
