The Haryana government has decided to award an additional 5% points to candidates for Group C who have no family members for government office.
However, the special incentive for applicants domiciled in Haryana, including orphans and widows, under “socio-economic criteria” will be accompanied by an income rider. To obtain this advantage, the candidate’s annual family income, including that from agriculture, must not exceed Rs 1.8 lakh.
Weighting by HSSC or any government agency should only be given once in a lifetime. Sanjeev Kaushal, Chief Secretary
A notification issued by Chief Secretary Sanjeev Kaushal pointed out that the Common Eligibility Test (CET) to be conducted by the Haryana Personnel Selection Commission (HSSC) will score 95 percent, while 5 percent One hundred marks will be awarded on the basis of the “socio-economic criteria” and experience.
The allowance will also be available for a widow or the first / second child when the father has died before reaching the age of 42. The first / second child would also receive an allowance if the father dies before the child turns 15.
In the case of male applicants, the term âfamilyâ will include father, mother, wife, single brother and sons. Likewise, for single candidates, the family designates the father, mother and single brothers.
In the case of a married applicant, family would mean husband, stepfather, stepmother, single stepbrother and sons. For a divorced candidate, this would include single father, mother, brothers and sons.
