The number of candidates registering for joining the Indian Army has tripled. Out of the registering candidates, a larger number of them have passed the physical test and medical tests in the last two recruitment rallies.
In a recruitment rally conducted at Likabali in the month of February 2018, approximately 2400 candidates appeared for the tests, out of which 850 were selected after physical and medical tests. But in written tests, the candidates of the State did not do well at all. Still a big batch of 173 candidates was finally selected.
In Jairampur Rally, which was conducted from May 10 to May 13, a total of 4253 candidates applied, out of which 1196 candidates have been selected after physical test. The details of final selection are still awaited.
Mishra stated, “In the past two rallies, Indian Army units and Army personnel have provided big support for our Arunachali youth.”
At the initiative of Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig (Retired) BD Mishra, many Army units have provided accommodation, food, training and medical check up to the candidates from the State in different cantonments. For this, the people of Arunachal Pradesh have high appreciation for the Indian Army.
The Governor has conveyed his appreciation to Army Recruiting Office, Jorhat, Indian Army units stationed in various parts of the State and Districts Administration for motivating and sending candidates for the rally. He said that this joint effort will further strengthen the national security on the borders of Arunachal Pradesh against China.
The Governor also expressed his gratitude to the Union Defence Minister and Chief of Army Staff for their compassionate and generous gesture for the recruitment rallies.
The Arunachal Governor has been trying for more pre-recruitment rallies and training to facilitate more candidates from the State in joining the Indian Army. He said any youth with matriculation can appear for the recruitment in general duty category and State administration will provide the candidates all assistance to compete for the recruitment.
The Governor has appealed to the people, particularly the Gaon Burhas, Panchayat members, public leaders and government officials to continue their efforts and encourage the youth of the State to join the armed forces, which is decidedly one of the best career. “Army offers the best life ambience to the soldiers,” he said.
