          Sir reservations in military shall not be accepted on any account. This issue is directly related with nations security.One who is capable ,after taking several test he may be given entry in military. Then who so ever he may be of any cast and creed.If sc,St people are up to the mark then obviously they may be posted. Only because they are ST or SC and if they does not suit for military performance they shall be straight away defected. Because this issue is sensitive and deals with Nations security.Jai Hind.Ram Deshpande Narayanguda Hyderabad.
