Parachute Regiment Policy

GENERAL
1. The Parachute Regiment consisting of
PARA and PARA (SF) battalions is the elite volunteer force of the Indian Army. Because of its specified role, the regiment needs to be kept at optimum level of operational efficiency and physical fitness. Towards this end, this specially selected manpower should be comparatively young, physically fit and mentally robust, intelligent, innovative and highly motivated so as to successfully accomplish the assigned operational tasks.

MANNING POLICY

Officers

2. Pre Commission. Volunteer GCs from IMA/OTA will be commissioned at the scale of two officers per battalion per year. These officers will be allotted a parent regiment by MS Branch.

3. Post Commission. Officers from all Arms and Services can volunteer for the Parachute Regiment subject to them having less than five years service on the day they volunteer, being in medical category SHAPE-I and being graded `EXCELLENT’ in BPET. These officers will retain their affiliated to their Regiment/Corps (as parent regiment).

PBOR

4. Keeping in view of terrain specific locations of the PARA and PARA (SF) battalions, each battalion has allotted with a fixed class composition. PARA and PARA (SF) battalions will be maintained at 95% to 100% of their authorized strength.

5. Recruitment. Recruitment to the Parachute Regiment will be carried out under the aegis of Parachute Regiment Training Centre (PRTC) with assistance from Recruiting Directorate, wherever required. In addition, volunteers from Arms/Services will also be permitted to join the Regiment. AG Branch/MP Dte (MP-3) would release recruiting vacancies accordingly.

6. Recruit Management. On completion of basic military training (BMT) at PRTC, individuals will be allotted a parent Inf Regiment by Infantry Dte under intimation to AG’s Branch/MP Dte (MP-3). The young soldiers will then be dispatched to respective battalions to undergo probation and final selection.

Individuals found unfit will be posted to their parent regiment after obtaining sanction of Comdt PRTC. Though there is no restriction on the number of personnel rejected by PARA and PARA (SF) battalions, sanction of DG Inf will need to be taken if the rejection rate during probation for the regiment exceeds 20% of young soldiers joining PARA and PARA (SF) battalions from PRTC annually.

Volunteers

7. All ranks from other Arms/Services can continue to volunteer to join Parachute Regiment, including PARA (SF) battalions, as hither-to-fore. Specimen application form is given at Appendix.

8. Officers. Officers will forward their application in duplicate to MS Branch (MS-2) duly countersigned by Commanding Officer with recommendation of higher HQ (one up). The application of volunteer officers including those from AMC will NOT be withheld at any level, even though the officers in the chain may not recommend the same.

9. PBOR. Applications will be submitted in duplicate duly signed by the Commanding Officer to the parent Record Office together with IAFZ-958 and IAFF-3013 (Conduct Sheet). An advance copy will also be forwarded to the Inf Dte (Inf-7) by the concerned unit. Applications will not be withheld by units for any reason, though Commanding Officer has the prerogative of `NOT RECOMMENDING’ an individual. The concerned Record Offices (for OR only) will forward applications to PARA Records, together with supporting documents, requesting PARA Records to intimate the PARA/PARA (SF) battalion and the date on which the volunteer is required to report for probation.

10. Probation. All ranks (Officers and PBOR) Volunteering for the Parachute Regiment will undergo probation in respective units, as under :-

(a) PARA Bns : 90 days

(b) PARA (SF) Bns : 180 days to include continuation training.

All ranks who do not qualify in probation will be reverted to their parent regiment.

11. Parachute Jump Training. On successful completion of probation, all ranks will undergo Para Basic course at PTS, Air Force, Agra, on successful completion of which they will be permanently absorbed in the Parachute Regiment. All ranks who do not volunteer to jump will be reverted to their parent Regiments.

12. Permanent Absorption. On successful completion of probation, the PARA/ PARA (SF) battalions will take action for permanent absorption of the individual through Record Office, The Parachute Regiment. All individual documents will accordingly be forwarded by unit/Record Office concerned to the Parachute Regiment Record Office.

RETURN TO PARENT ARM / CORPS

13. Unsuitable for Parachute Duties. While serving in the PARA Regt, PBOR may be reverted to their parent Regts/ Corps through their Record Offices. Some of the reasons for an indl being found unsuitable for PARA/PARA (SF) duties are as under :-

(a) Becomes a Non Parachute volunteer after completing five years of service in PARA/ PARA (SF) battalions.

(b) Becomes a permanent low medical category (LMC) and the strength of such LMC personnel exceeds 4% of the held strength.

(c) His return to the parent unit is justifiable in organisational interest under the provisions of AI 46/74 as under :-

(i) Physical deterioration through age.

(ii) Nerve strain.

(iii) Injury of such nature so as to make a man unfit for service as a Paratroooper.

14. On return to Parent Unit. Individuals being returned to parent unit will retain the seniority of the last substantive rank. Individuals on return to parent unit will undergo promotion cadres in the parent unit. Passing promotion cadre in the PARA/PARA (SF) units does not exempt an individual from the unit promotion cadres. An individual is permitted to be tested three times for promotion to the next rank as per the orders on the subject. However, if an individual has appeared and passed his promotion cadre in PARA/PARA (SF) battalion, it will not be deemed as a chance when he returns to his parent unit.

15. Disposal of LMCs. Due to the type of tasks being undertaken by PARA/PARA (SF) battalions, there is a likelihood of a higher percentage of individuals becoming permanent low medical categories. PARA/PARA (SF) units will remain permanent low medical categories (LMC) upto 4% of authorized strength, who may be adjusted in the unit in sheltered appointments, in PRTC and on ERE. Balance LMC personnel will be reverted to parent Arm/Corps.
