Summary: Why Indian government's eligibility criteria sucks...
How do you want our policemen look?
1. Like an actor?
2. Tall and chesty?
3. Ability to match dots and dots to solve puzzle?
If that's your preference, then our government's criteria rocks, otherwise it sucks. Look at the eligibility chart published by Tamil Nadu police. It may look sane for those who're already swallowed by the crazy system. Otherwise, it's extremely crazy. I don't know, if Veerappan had necessary chest; but he really rocked every chesty policemen! In the world of pistols, are these things really matters--especially the height??
And, the "age". Why can't they fix the retirement age to 35 then? In other words, why the "criteria" is only for the "entry"?
Someone told me that they ask puzzles and "joining dots" type of questions in IPS examinations. Are they going to solve puzzle or crimes?
