As part of the PET which is conducted for candidates who qualify in the PWT, men have to qualify in the 1,600 metres run within a maximum time of 7 minutes 15 seconds. However, for ex-servicemen, the maximum time is 9 minutes 30 seconds. Women candidates must qualify in the 800 metres run within a maximum time of 5 minutes 20 seconds.
The police job aspirants qualifying in the run event should meet the physical measurements. Those who are declared qualified in the physical measurements will have to undergo long jump and shot put events.

For some posts, the final selection is based on the merit secured in the final written exam (paper III and IV) and the PET and for a few other posts, the selection is done considering the candidate’s performance in the final written exam (paper-III and IV).
