A senior official from Indian Army recently announced that the Army Recruitment Office has decided to conduct a recruitment rally at Yavatmal, Maharashtra. The recruitment rally is scheduled to begin from January 6, 2017 and it will end by January 17, 2017.
ARO Director Col. Sudhir Singh said that the response they received after starting the online application submission process for the recruitment rally was overwhelming. He also added that approximately 2500 young candidates have already registered online in order to participate in the recruitment rally.
The Indian Army is recruiting candidates for four different categories in the recruitment rally, including Soldier Technical, Soldier General, Soldier Storekeeper, and Soldier Clerk. Col. Singh further added that the recruitment rally for the above posts will be conducted with the support of Yavatmal district administration. The arrangements for the recruitment rally were finalized after a recent meeting between the Yavatmal District Collector Sachindra Pratap Singh and the ARO.
The officials have selected the District Sport Stadium, Yavatmal, as the venue for the recruitment rally. Candidates from Yavatmal, Akola, Chandrapur, Gadchiroli, Gondia, Bhandara, Amravati, Washim, Wardha, and Nagpur districts can apply for this recruitment rally. The Indian Army recruitment wing has made arrangements to accommodate the candidates participating in the rally. The candidates will be accommodated in college buildings and marriage halls, which are located in the close vicinity of the venue.
Col. Singh added that recruitment officials would initially conduct a test in order to check if any candidate has consumed or used performance enhancing drugs. He said that this would be a major task for the recruitment officers, although he assured that the results of this test would be made available immediately. The candidates, who do not pass this test, will be ruled out and they will not be eligible to continue.
The previous recruitment rally, which was conducted at Bhandara last year, was highly successful and it brought positive response from the residents of Maharashtra. This urged the Army officials to conduct another recruitment rally to find eligible and interested candidates from the state.
Approximately 37825 candidates appeared for the recruitment rally last year, and around 660 candidates managed to successfully clear all three tests conducted by the recruitment officials. Successful candidates were then selected by the Indian Army for various posts, as per the recruitment notice.
