Youths with tattoos on their body will not be eligible for recruitment in Indian Army.



Bundi: Youths with tattoos on their body will not be eligible for recruitment in Indian Army.

Speaking to reporters here, Colonel Vijay Sawant, Director of Recruitment Cell, Army Cantonment, Kota said the army recruitment rule, enforced since December 2011, disqualifies youths with tattoos on the body on medical ground.

The youths with tattoos may have been infected with AIDS/HIV or Hepatitis B virus as needles are used in the process, he said while announcing that the recruitment process would start from May 19 to 27 at Bundi district headquarter.

He noted that in many instances non-hygienic needles are used for making tattoo by untrained artisans.

Candidates from nine districts of Rajasthan ? Jhalawar, Baran, Pratapgarh, Bundi, Kota, Chittorgarh, Ajamer, Bhilwara and Rajsmand can apply for qualifying competitive events for the posts of general solider, solider nursing, solider technician and solider clerk.
