Beware of Touts:

  • 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. An 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 go for recruitment, have self-belief. Anyone offering a guarantee of recruitment must be reported to the police or the rally officials immediately. Over a period Army has identified many methods a tout adopts to lure candidates. They are given below for you to ward off any such offers.
  • Likely Victim: Before a tout target 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 a 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 a lot of strictness this time”.
  • 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-serviceman or any other identity. Mind you, he will want you (candidate) to notice this and then he capitalizes on this handshake.
  • Telling Candidates False Indicators: Tout will misleadingly say “wear this colored vest (baniyan)/Shorts, I’ve told the people concerned. They won’t ask you anything but will know that you are my man.” or “When you go for the interview of the Director Recruiting, say ‘Namaste’ or touch his feet. He will understand.”
  • No one but only you can make it through the recruitment process if you have the qualification and capability. Don’t lose your parent’s hard-earned money to unscrupulous touts.
