NYS Volunteer Recruitment
Recognizing the challenges some may face, NYS has expressed its concern for orphans who meet the eligibility requirements listed. Orphans are given special priority, provided they can present sufficient documentary evidence, such as parents’ death certificates or burial permits.
Persons with disabilities
In addition, the recruitment process encourages the participation of people with disabilities. These individuals are encouraged to present themselves for recruitment in their respective sub-districts and centers if they can withstand rigorous physical training.
The NYS statement strongly warns against corruption and emphasizes a zero-tolerance policy. Soliciting or offering monetary or other consideration for admission is considered a criminal offense leading to automatic disqualification and potential prosecution. Cases of this nature are urgently requested to be reported immediately to the General Manager on the above telephone number 020-2400129.
