The ‘CAPF Punarvaas’ portal launched by the Union Home Ministry will help retired personnel of the Central Armed Police Forces —such as the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and the Border Security Force (BSF)— looking to be re-employed find suitable jobs.
The interested retired personnel may upload their personal details on the Welfare and Rehabilitation Board (WARB) along with details of their areas of expertise and the location they would prefer to be employed in.
This portal is especially aimed to benefit retired CAPF and Assam Rifle personnel, who are looking for jobs post retirement, with private security agencies.
A portal is already running under the Private Security Agencies Regulation Act (PSARA) where private security agencies (PSAs) can register.
Now, the two portals have been connected, which makes it possible for PSAs to access information / data on the retired personnel who have applied on ‘CAPF Punarvaas’ through the PSARA website. That means, now, the job seekers and employers can find each other easily on a single platform.
The number of business establishments has grown, and so has the demand for security services. This, in turn, has led to the mushrooming of PSAS.
This initiative will make it possible for willing retired CAPF personnel to grab opportunities to be employed with PSAs and thus be rehabilitated.
Meanwhile, personnel who have retired after serving in the CAPFs are appealing to the Telangana government for reservation and age relaxation in police recruitment. Tamil Nadu is the only state to have agreed to age relaxation and reservation for retired CAPFs personnel till now.
