PASSION OF J&K YOUTH TO JOIN FORCES RESULTS IN ASTOUNDING SUCCESS OF THE ARMY RECRUITMENT RALLY AT REASI



Udhampur (J&K) : 09 SEP 2019


The Army Recruitment Rally at Reasi witnessed a massive response from the enthusiastic youth of J&K. Over 29,000 youth from the hilly and remote areas of the Districts of Doda, Kishtwar, Rajouri, Poonch, Udhampur, Ramban and Reasi turned up for the Recruitment Rally from 03 to 09 Sep 19 organised at Subsidiary Training Centre (STC) of J&K Police at Talwara, Reasi.

The notification for this recruitment drive had been issued around three months ago but the last date for the on-line registration was extended till 23 Aug 19. The extension was placed to avoid inconveniences to aspiring candidates owing to curbs and restrictions placed on Internet and other channels of communication post 05 Aug 19. The registration kept flooding till the last date and over 29,000 aspiring youths from J&K registered themselves.

The candidates were screened for their physical fitness, medical examination and documentation at the rally site and the successful candidates will undergo written test on 26 Oct 19. Selected candidates will then be inducted into various arms and services of the Army. This recruitment rally and similar initiatives across J&K will go a long way in meeting the aspirations of the youths of the hinterland and remote areas, who wish to join the Army, serve the nation and carve out a brighter future for themselves and their families. The candidates who appeared in the recruitment drive were not only driven by passion but have expressed desire to selflessly serve their motherland if, given an opportunity. "It was a passion, dream and goal since my childhood to join the Armed Forces. That's the reason I am here," said a candidate.

The rally has been a huge success in terms of the willingness seen amongst the candidates, who turned up in large numbers from remotest parts of the region after abrogation of the Article 370 and Article 35A and Internal Security situation in J&K for past month. The youth aged between 17 and 23 years reached the selection venue in huge numbers despite the inclement weather and difficult hilly terrain. The enthusiasm and spirit of the candidates clearly reflects their desire for personal progression while placing faith in Government and the Indian Army.

The recruitment drive will provide employment to the youth of region who are looking forward to a secure future. The Recruitment Rally received an over whelming response from the youth of Jammu & Kashmir and support from civil administration for smooth conduct of the event. The youth thanked the Indian Army for its initiative for youth employment and also expressed their gratitude to the support provided by the Indian Army.
