A unit in army is self dependent, it does not need help from other units for any task. It is like a society that is self sustaining, and is totally efficient in carrying out any task on its own. Each unit has its own equipment, vehicles, gardens etc. And there are almost 1200 people in each unit. To maintain everything, a unit needs special people, and that is where tradesman comes into play.

Tradesmen are one of the most important part of army, they ensure the smooth and proper functioning of a unit. And each year they recruit number of people for different trades.

Following are the trades that one can apply for : chef, hair dresser, store hand,  animal store holders, ferrier, pioneers, postal, steward, artisan (wood), artisan (painter), artisan (tailor), artisan (metallurgy), artisan (musician), equipment repairer, kennel man, washer man, mess keeper, house keeper.

Soldier Tradesman Eligibility Criteria

To get recruited as a soldier tradesman, a candidate has to satisfy certain requirements that are necessary. Below is the important eligibility criteria, read them all and then check if you match all the requirements. And if there is any eligibility that you do not fulfil, then you should know that you will not be able to apply. And if somehow you do, then you will be disqualified on the day of rally.

Educational Qualifications

The educational criteria for soldier tradesman is simple. A candidate who is applying for tradesman should be at least 10th pass (except for mess keeper and house keeper), or must have done ITI from a recognised college or institute.

Candidates who are applying for house keeper or mess keeper, they can be just 8th simple pass from a recognised education board.

Age Limit

The applicant must not be less than 17½ years old and neither more than 23 years old.

Minimum age = 17½ years
Maximum age = 23 years

Note :- The age of the candidate will be calculated from the birth date (as per documents) till the day of bharti.

Physical eligibility (height, weight, chest)

A candidate must satisfy the following physical standards in order to get eligible to participate in the rally or bharti :

States Height (in cm) Weight (in Kg) Chest (in cm)

It is very important to fulfil the above given standards of height, weight and chest for any candidate to be eligible to apply for soldier tradesman. The following concessions will be given to candidates having special certificate.

Certificate Height (in cm) Weight (in Kg) Chest (in cm)
Sports certificate 2 5 3
Relation certificate 2 2 1
applicants from poor areas none 2 none

To be able to avail the concession, the candidate must produce the original and valid documents or certificate. If a candidate fails to show the appropriate documents, then he will not be given the benefits.

Medical eligibility for soldier tradesman

To ensure that a candidate is medically fit, army has set up some medical standards that everyone has to fulfill before getting recruited. Following are the main posts of medical standards.

  1. Good physical and mental health with a robust physique. Not only a candidate should be fit externally, but he should also be in a healthy state of mind.
  2. He should have at least 14 dental points.
  3. He should have a 6/6, and binocular vision in both the eyes.
  4. The applicant should be free from any diseases.
  5. He should have a normal hearing range in both the ears.

Note: If you went or want to go under operation, then it should be at least 6 months old. Also, the operation should not cause any problem to you other wise you will be disqualified in the medical round. Make sure you carry the original operation report with you to be on a safer side.

So these are the eligibility criteria that one needs to fulfil to get recruited. If you lack any of the given criteria, then I am sorry to say that you are not fit to apply for soldier tradesman. And if you do satisfy all the criteria, then you should definitely know the selection procedure involved in recruiting a soldier tradesman.

Soldier Tradesman Selection Procedure

The soldier tradesman process is bit complicated as compared to other trades, because it involves extra aptitude test (for some trades). But all the other stages are same as other trades. Following is the process :

Indian army selection procedure

Preparing Documents

This goes without saying that you need to have all your documents right and ready, even if there is no recruitment for some time. You can apply for any government job if you have your documents all set.

So, do not wait for the right time to come, and be ready for with your documents. In rally many of the candidates are rejected for not having proper documents. Imagine you practised so hard for the bharti, and when it’s time to put that hard work to some use, you get kicked off just because not having some piece of papers right.

This will be very heart breaking, so save yourself from some regret and start preparing your documents right now. Following are the documents that you will need on the bharti ground.

  1. Class 10th passing certificate and mark sheet. For candidates applying on 8th base, mark sheet of 8th class with stamp and signature of principal of the school.
  2. Domicile or Residence Certificate with photograph issued by the authorised signatory of the State Government / Tehsildar / SDM.
  3. Caste Certificate with photograph.
  4. Religion Certificate
  5. Character certificate issued by the school principal.
  6. Character certificate (not less than 6 months old) with photograph issued by village sarpanch, municipal corporation or police.
  7. Aadhar card and 20 recent passport size coloured photos.

Candidates should carry original and at least 2 photocopies of the above mentioned documents. Also, if any candidate has certificates like NCC, relation etc. then he should bring them too (original).

Now you have the list of documents that are important to apply for soldier tradesman. So, you can get started with document preparation.

Online Registration

Gone are the days when you just needed to reach the bharti ground to participate in the rally. Army has introduced the online registration process before participating in the rally. Now, a candidate will have to first register himself online through army official website before participating in the bharti.

See also : Army online registration process.

Visit to register yourself online. Before you start applying, make sure that you apply through a good internet speed. Also, keep your documents with you, and do not make any mistake while filling the form. Once the form is submitted, then the users will not be able to change any information, so cross check your form at least 2 to 3 times.

See “Army online application” for more details about online application process.

Physical Fitness Test (PFT)

This is where the real deal start, the very first phase of rally or bharti. In physical fitness test your physical abilities will be checked. There will be multiple rounds in physical test which a candidate will have to pass to get to the next phase. Following is a step by step procedure of soldier tradesman bharti :

Initial stages

Please note that candidates will have to carry the indemnity bond with them, else they will not be allowed to participate in the rally.

An indemnity bond is an assurance by you to army that, if any thing happens to you during the rally, it will not be the responsibility of army, and you will not ask for any compensation.

In the initial stages of the bharti, first the documents of the participants are checked, if there is any fault in the documents of any candidate then he is not allowed to proceed and is disqualified right at the starting. So, it is very important to keep the documents (along with admit card) properly ready.

The next round of initial stage is height and weight measurement. In this round, height of each and every candidate is measured, and if someone is under heighten or does not have the right weight, then he is disqualified from the rally. So, it will be useless to participate in the rally for someone who does not satisfy the physical eligibility.

Running test for endurance

Running test is the hardest of all tests, because in this test, a candidate have to run 1600 meters (1.6 km) in a group, which makes it extremely difficult to run because of the congested space. And to add the pressure even more, you are given time constrains, which will just make it even harder.

One can not get through the racing part of the rally without hard practice. If it is not too late for you, then you should start practicing for the race right from today. See our article “how to prepare for army” to get the complete guideline on how you should start preparing for the army bharti.

These are the details about the race  :

Upto 5 mins 40 secs – 60 Marks (Group I)

From 5 mins 41 secs to 6 mins 20 sec – 48 Marks (Group II)

More than 6 min 20 sec – fail (disqualified)

Please note that from 1 April 2017, the rules of 1.6 km racing will be changed.

Pull up test for strength

Right after finishing the race, qualified participants will go for pull up on beam (under grip). Doing pull ups right after running, is quite difficult. So, don’t even think for a second that you can do pull ups without practice. If you are not in practice, then believe me! doing even 3 pulls will feel like climbing mountains. And 3 pull ups will surely not get you through.

Here’s the details of pull ups :

6 pull ups = 16 marks

7 pull ups = 21 marks

8 pull ups = 27 marks

9 pull ups = 33 marks

10 pull ups = 40 marks

To get your name in the merit list, it’s important to score as much marks as possible in PFT. So, try to get that excellent by doing 10 pull ups.

Chest measurement :- After the pull round, the chest of candidates is measured. The chest of a candidate should be well developed and and at least 5 cm increase in chest should be there after expansion.

9 Feet ditch for courage

Once, the candidates pass the chest measurement round, then they will have to cross a 9 feet long ditch. This test is done to test the courage of a candidate. There are no marks given for this test, you just have to qualify this round. Normally very few fail in this test, but just to be on a safer side, practice long jumps to get through this round smoothly.

Zig-zag balance for agility

This round will test the agility of candidates. In this round you will be made to walk on narrow zig-zag stands or ropes. candidates will need too clear this without falling. And by the way if you are wondering what agility mean, it’s the ability to do difficult things swiftly with complete focus.

Again, no marks are awarded for this round, you just need to qualify this round.

Aptitude test

This is an extra test that is organised only for tradesman category. Since, a candidate will be selected for a particular trade, therefore, to make sure that a candidate do know about the applied trade, this test is conducted.

Make sure that you are fully prepared for this test and do your best, because out of the total marks that you will score in this test, 40% will be added to the final merit list. i.e 40% marks of this test will add in final merit list. So, this test is very crucial, and you need to be prepared for it.

Medical test

Running and medical test are the two rounds where most of the candidates are disqualified. Even a slightest problem in your mental and physical health can become the cause of disqualification. So, to be sure, each and every applicant should make sure that they are medically fit for to participate in the rally.

Consult to expert doctor and take routine checkups to make sure everything is OK.

Common Entrance Exam (CEE)

Written exam is the final hurdle of recruitment. Out of total marks that you will score in written exam, 30% will be added in the final merit list. The written exam will carry a total 100 marks and 50 questions will be asked. The paper will be divided in 3 subjects, general knowledge, general science and maths.

Gk will carry highest number of question i.e 20 questions, whereas general science and maths will carry 15 questions each. Each question will be of 2 marks. 1 hour time will be given to finish the exam, and a candidate will need to score at least 32 marks to be declared as pass. For more details please see “soldier tradesman syllabus and paper pattern”.

See also : Soldier Tradesman Sample Papers And Previous Year Papers

Note : passing the written exam does not mean that your name will be there in the merit list. It just mean that you are qualified for the merit list round.

Making of merit list

If your name is there in the merit list, it means that you have successfully cleared all the test, and are now recruited as tradesman. The details of merit list are as follows :

30% PFT + 30% CEE + 40% aptitude = merit list

suppose you get 70 marks in PFT (physical fitness test), then 30% of 70 marks will be 21. So, this mean that in your final merit list 21 marks will be added. Likewise, if you get 70 in CEE (common entrance exam) then 21 marks will be added. And, if you get 70 marks in aptitude, then 40% of 70 will be 28, and 28 marks will be added in the final merit list.

So, in the final merit list, your marks will be 78 out of 100.

Note : merit list is never fix, suppose all the candidates in your group have scored above 80 in merit list, then it will be set accordingly, and if you have got 78, then your name will not be in the merit list.

So, this is how the final merit list is made.

Dispatch for training

Now when you are selected for the job, then you will get a call letter in which there will be all the details about training. A candidate has to go under 9 months of hard training. The starting 6 months will be regular training like other trades, then a 30 days break is given. After break, the remaining 3 months training is carried on in which candidates will be trained for their particular trades.

Note : you will not be considered as full fledged army personnel until you complete your training.

So, this is the whole soldier tradesman selection procedure. Hope, this article cleared your doubts. But, if you still have any, then feel free to ask via comments.

All the best!

  40. Jay Hind sir. Mai army me bharti hona chahta hu. Lekin GD me 21 saal tk age honi chahiye aur meri age 21 saal is 1/11/2017 ke bharti ke baad 17 tarikh ko puri hoti hai to kya main GD ke liye apply kar sakta hu ya phir exam ke liye koi problem hogi. Please replay sir.

    1. Hi Sanjay.
      As per the Indian army rules your age is calculated from your birth date(as per your documents) till the date of the bharti and not the date when you filled the application form. So, if you are going to be 21 years old after the date of the bharti then you will not face any problem and you can prepare for the written exam.

  41. Hello Sir. Mai 10th pass hu but meri percentage km hai only 43%. Toh kya me GD ya Tradesman ke liye apply kr sakta hu.

    1. Hi Dilip.
      For soldier GD the eligibility criteria is SSLC / Matric with 45% marks in aggregate and 33% in each subject. No percentage considered in case candidate has passed with higher qualification ie 10+2 and above. While for tradesman it is 10th Simple Pass/ ITI (except Syce, Mess Keeper and House Keeper-who may be 8th Simple Pass). As, you have mentioned that in 10th you scored 43% so you do not fulfill the criteria for GD post hence you cannot apply for it but for tradesmen post you are eligible.

  42. Sir mera age bahrti rally jis din hoga us din 21 year 20 day ho jaega lekin form bharne ke samay 21 year se kam age hai kya mai gd ke lie form bhar sakta hu. Please btao.
