SANDEEP 5 started this petition to Indian Air Force and

AFCAT exams conducted by IAF for selecting airforce officers, AFCAT happens twice a year, there are 3 branches in IAF to serve- flying, ground duty technical & ground duty non technical.

for AFCAT 1 2021, IAF released notification last year but this time they changed guidelines and made 10+2 mandatory for ground duty nontechnical branch along with graduation with 60%(earlier this rule wasn't there) to fill AFCAT form. By this change thousands of 10+3+graduation aspirants willing to appear for AFCAT couldn't fill its form.

Now again application are invited for AFCAT 2 2021 with the same disastrous rule.

what will students who did 3yrs diploma engg. after 10th then completed their engineering graduation will do ? Are they less qualified than 10+2 system students ? They also studied 1  extra year as compared to 10+2 system students, but now they face such ill rules to give exams.

There is no justified reason to make 10+2 compulsory for ground duty, 3yrs diploma course after 10th is considered equivalent to 10+2 system by government. Also universities grant lateral admission to these students in degree courses after completing their diploma after 10th.

This system is not present in Indian army, they allow both 10+2 & 10+3 students to appear for technical and non technical entries, then why IAF has included it ?

Why IAF is doing this discrimination by not allowing 10+3 candidates, it's against right to equality, right to employment and right to equal opportunities, every year thousands of student take this path and do diploma after 10th then graduation, this rule is taking away their chance to serve their country when there is already shortage of officers in Indian armed forces.

Hence this changed guidelines should be repealed at earliest, AFCAT guidelines should be restored as was till AFCAT 2 2020. As the AFCAT 2 2021 applications is going on so 10+3 students should be allowed at earliest so that they can focus on their AFCAT exam.
