When a person born with one or more extra fingers or toes, he/ she is said to be suffering from “Polydactyly”
“Polydactyly” in simple words means ‘many fingers’ and is congenital physical mutilation in humans and animals which generally results in extra growth of fingers and toes.
The presence of polydactyly varies from person to person. It may appear as:
- Small, raised lump of extra tissues, containing no bones.
- Partially formed finger or toe containing some bones but no joints.
- Fully functioning finger or toe with tissues, bones and joints.
Is it a rejection in Indian Armed Forces?
The presence of an extra sixth finger or toe is a very common congenital malformation. This condition is called hexadactyly.
Hexadactyly in itself can be innocuous, absolutely harmless and very easily remedied, when the hexadactyly is an isolated finding and the baby is otherwise entirely normal.
According to astrology, people with 6 fingers are very lucky and in some hands the little finger has the sixth finger and in some hands it is near the thumb. It is believed that according to palmistry, people who have 6 fingers in their hands are very lucky and such a person is more profitable.
But this assumption stands wrong when it comes to Indian Armed Forces.
Yes, defence aspirants having 6 fingers or toes stand unfortunate as this is a case of permanent rejection in medical test.
Generally, such a case of extra growth of finger does not have any negative implications or any kind of hindrances in doing the daily work. But, in the case of armed forces, it is taken very seriously and such cases are given downright permanent rejection.
Reasons behind rejection are military clothing as well as the equipment. Some of them are gloves, footwear etc.
Such candidates who desire to join Indian Armed Forces can go for a surgical operation to get the extra growth of the finger or toe removed. After the operation, it should be made sure the no such mark of surgery should be visible.
Hence, it can be concluded that such an issue is a sure shot rejection in the Indian Armed Forces, but if treated can convert the rejection into a selection.
