Mumbai, 26th December 2022: The recruitment process in Mumbai Fire Force, which has been stalled for the last few years, is now going to start in the new year itself. The recruitment process will be held in Bhavdevi Maidan in Dahisar West. The recruitment process has been stalled due to the lack of response to the tenders called for by the fire brigade.
The recruitment process for the posts in the Mumbai Fire Force has finally started after a long wait. The much-awaited advertisement for this recruitment will be released soon. The recruitment process will be held in Bhavdevi Maidan in Dahisar West, and its filming will also be done. The fire brigade had recently invited tenders for it but received an underwhelming response. Officials informed that efforts are being made to find a way out. In the meantime, the crackdown on Maratha reservation, layoffs and the stalled recruitment process in the fire brigade due to Corona has now stalled due to a different reason. The recruitment will be done in the same way as it was done earlier in 2017. The process includes a physical examination and medical examination of the candidates who have traditionally passed 12th. The recruitment advertisement will be issued after the contractor is fixed for preparation in Dahisar ground for recruitment.
The actual recruitment process will start after the release of the advertisement. After that, the process of candidate selection medical test will take two months. After that, the officials have estimated that it will take one year for the candidates to join, even if everything goes smoothly after completing the six-month training of the candidates in a phased manner. The Mumbai Fire Brigade has a manpower of around 3000 firemen, officers and drivers. 2,500 of them are firefighters. But the posts were largely vacant due to promotion or retirement. The fire brigade chief Sanjay Manjrekar informed us that this recruitment will be done for vacant posts.
As the age limit has been increased by two years in police recruitment due to layoffs, relaxation will also be given in this recruitment, and it has been given administrative approval recently, the officials said. So now the age limit for the open category will be 27 years instead of 25, and for reserved categories, the same limit will be 32 years instead of 30. Officials said that it will also be considered whether a waiting list can be made for the continuously vacant posts.
