HC Deb 26 July 1915 vol 73 c1935
18. Sir J. JARDINE

asked the Secretary for India as regards persons declared to have passed the examination for the Civil Service of India and permitted to spend the following year of probation in India and in military service with the regiment there, if he will state the period to be spent in such military service, and what pay and allowances are given in that period; and in what manner and after what examinations, if any, the officer is allowed to enter the Civil Service of India?


Selected candidates for the Indian Civil Service who have been allowed to proceed to India in military service are receiving the military pay and allowances of their rank. The duration of this military service must depend upon military necessities. They will be exempted from the usual final examination, but before entering upon their civil duties they must pass the lower standard examination in the principal vernacular language of their province and must qualify in riding.
