Beware of Touts

  1. Please be Wary of Touts(Dalal). They cannot influence the recruiting procedure at all. They are liars and take advantage of your lack of knowledge of the recruiting procedure. Army recruiting is absolutely free, fair and totally merit based. Individual having the required qualifications and capability will get selected on his own steam. No one can change the procedure to push in undeserving candidates since the procedure has stringent checks and balances and mostly automated. Therefore when you come for recruitment, have self belief. Anyone offering guarantee of recruitment must be reported to police or the rally officials immediately. Over a period we have identified many methods a tout adopts to lure candidates. They are given below for you to ward off any such offers.
  2. Likely Victim. Before a tout targets a candidate, he checks the candidate thoroughly. Normally he selects boys who are physically fit with no medical problems and would in all probability be good in studies. Such candidates generally pass on their own steam. He gives false assurances and says "You just pass the run. I will get the rest of it done.” When a candidate passes, in such case, the tout will take the credit. If the candidate gets rejected, the tout returns the money or at least a major part of it with a lie that "some money, I can’t give back since I gave it to officials. However they have assured me that they will definitely do something next time, since there was lot of strictness this time”.
  3. Tricks To Acquire Candidates Trust. The tout will do anything to acquire the candidate’s faith so that they give him money easily e.g. in the middle of a recruitment rally, the tout will go up and make a deliberate effort to shake hands with recruiting personnel claiming to be an ex-servicemen or any other identity. Mind you, he will want you(candidate) to notice this and then he capitalizes on this hand shake.
  4. Telling Candidates False Indicators. Tout will misleadingly say "wear this coloured vest (baniyan)/Shorts, I’ve told the people concerned. They won’t ask you anything but will know that you are my man.” or
  5. "When you go for the interview of the Director Recruiting, say ‘Namaste’ or touch his feet. He will understand.”
  6. No one but only you can make it through the recruitment process, if you have the qualification and capability. Don’t lose your parents hard earned money to unscrupulous touts.
