The Indian Army is going to conduct a recruitment drive at the Rajeev Gandhi Stadium in Rohtak city from August 03 to 12, 2018, for candidates from Rohtak, Panipat, Jhajjar, and Sonipat. Interested candidates from these four Haryana cities can apply for posts of Soldier (General Duty), and Soldier (Store Keeper Technical), or Soldier (Clerk) through Army’s official website to take part in the recruitment rally.
The last date of submitting the online application is slated for July 18. So, if you meet the eligibility criteria, and are ready to serve the nation, apply for the Soldier posts on time to partake in the Open Bharti Rally. Joining Indian Army is an aspiration for youth of a certain age bracket.
