I have just learnt from a very high level reliable source in Maharashtra Govt that there are over 250 vacancies in Forest Dept for contractual engagement (for 2 years at a time renewable till retirement age) for a salary of Rs. 12000/- in position of Forest Guards. These vacancies are reserved for ex-Army personnel and the salary will be in addition to their pension. The positions are open in a few specific places, namely, Yawal in Jalgaon, Chandrapur in Tadoba, and Melghat in Amravati.
In addition, 44 post are reserved for permanent for ST ex-Armymen for absorption as Govt servants till their retirement.
I request this info be circulated amongst concerned army ESM and volunteers be invited to apply. Ads, it is learnt, have already appeared in newspapers.
