    MHA wants women with 'well-
    developed chest' in BSF!

    The Ministry of Home Affairs while
    inviting applications for group ‘C’
    posts of paramedics in the Border
    Security Force (BSF) in female
    category, mentioned that candidates
    need to have “well-developed chests”.
    Taking note of this language, a
    parliamentary panel here on Thursday
    expressed “utmost displeasure”,
    saying such irrational language for
    female candidates was “unwarranted”.
    The panel, headed by P Karunakaran
    said the language in the
    advertisement issued by the BSF was
    also “derogatory” in nature.
    It was only when the parliamentary
    committee on subordinate legislation
    expressed displeasure at such a rule
    as calling females with well-developed
    chests, the home ministry acted swiftly
    to remove the minimum requirement
    of the chest size for the female
    candidates.
    In a report tabled in Lok Sabha, the
    panel said the ministry wrote back that
    the issue was examined in
    consultation with the BSF and it has
    been decided to delete the words
    “since there should be no minimum
    requirement for chest for female
    candidates.”
    The ministry also informed the
    committee that it also decided to carry
    out a general review of the
    recruitment rules of all central para
    military forces and to replace such
    words with “Not Applicable” in case of
    the female candidates.
    The parliamentary committee
    recommended that the requisite
    amendment in the rules be carried
    out at the earliest and apprise it of the
    action taken. It also stressed that the
    general review of the recruitment rules
    for the paramilitary forces be also
    undertaken without delay “to remove
    infirmities including the usage of
    words which are
    derogatory in nature,
    especially in relation to female
    candidates.”
