It is absolutely essential in all cases to have the recruits stripped while carrying out

medical examination. Due regard be paid to privacy and decency. It is not sufficient

that the clothing be only partially removed. An underwear may be permitted except

when the examination is being carried out involving private parts. Every part of the

body must be examined and if a recruit does not submit to this even after persuasion,

he will be rejected. Permanent body tattoos are only permitted on inner face of

forearms i.e. from inside of elbow to the wrist and on the reverse side of palm/ back

in the matter shall be final. Permanent body tattoos on any other part of the body is

Responsibility for physical fitness

3

The examining Medical Board is responsible for checking the physical fitness of the

recruits, the likelihood of their physical development and for their identification marks.

cause rejection. In the case of fit recruits the Board will make the necessary entry on

the enrolment form, the wording used being Fit-category GREF-I and return it to the

enrolling officer. The signature of the examining Medical Officer on the enrolment

form will be accepted as equivalent to a declaration that he has personally examined

the recruit in question according to the existing instructions and that the recruit has no

blemish or defect except those noted on the enrolment form. Remarks relating to any

defects in the recruit will be endorsed in the medical examiner’s own handwriting.

When there are no distinctive marks this must be stated.

5

Any failure of officers concerned to give attention to the preparation and maintenance

are carefully and accurately made at the time of examination.
