Chandigarh, December 31

The Haryana Government has decided to award 5 per cent extra marks to Group C post aspirants who have no family member in government job.

However, the special incentive for the Haryana-domiciled candidates, including orphans and widows, under the “socio-economic criteria” will come with an income rider. To get this benefit, the candidate’s annual family income, including that from agriculture, should not exceed Rs 1.8 lakh.

‘One chance’

The weightage by the HSSC or any government agency shall be given only once in a lifetime. Sanjeev Kaushal, Chief Secretary

A notification issued by Chief Secretary Sanjeev Kaushal highlighted that the common eligibility test (CET) to be conducted by the Haryana Staff Selection Commission (HSSC) shall carry 95 per cent marks, while 5 per cent marks will be awarded on the basis of the “socio-economic criteria” and experience.

The benefit will also be available to a widow or the first/second child when the father had died before attaining the age of 42 years. The first/second child would also get benefit in case the father died before the child attaining the age of 15 years.

In case of male candidates, term “family” will include father, mother, wife, unmarried brother and sons. Similarly, for unmarried female applicants, family means father, mother and unmarried brothers.

In case of a married applicant, family would mean husband, father-in-law, mother-in-law, unmarried brother-in-law and sons. For a divorced female candidate, it would include father, mother, unmarried brothers and sons.

Keeping in view their socio-economic backwardness, the benefit would also be extended to members of de-notified tribes (Vimukti Jatis and Tapriwas Jatis) that are not included in Scheduled Castes or Backward Classes categories.

Meanwhile, Haryana candidates will be awarded 0.5 per cent weightage for each year or part thereof exceeding six months of experience on the same or higher posts in any government department.
