Online Registration Is Mandatory
The officials said that online registration is mandatory for the aspirants to appear for the recruitment rally and the further procedure. Earlier, the candidates could just walk into the recruitment rallies, undergo the tests and get selected.
After the online application, there will be a Common Entrance Examination (CEE). This will be online based. Those who pass the CEE will get an admit card to participate in the rally.
Indian Army Recruitment Office decided to switch to the online registration procedure in tune with the Digital India initiative. The new system will take full effect from 1 April 2016. The officials hope that the online registration process would make the screening procedure more effective and reduce the burden on the administration. Furthermore, it would ensure that only enthusiastic candidates would turn up for the recruitment rally.
Until now, anyone could walk into the Army recruitment rallies and undergo the screening. As a result, thousands of eligible and ineligible candidates showed up for the screening. The Army officials had a really tough time on the administration of the entire screening process.
In online registration, the personal email ID of the candidates would be considered the basic parameter for the verification process.
