CHANDIGARH: A huge respite to thousands of youngsters in the region who aspire to become defence officers, the Army authorities would start a special selection centre (North) from October 1 at Kapurthala Punjab. The centre would provisionally function for around three years from Kapurthala military station and thereafter it would be shifted to state of art 200-acre campus at Ropar (near Chandigarh), which is at present under construction.
As of now, the young aspirants from Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Chandigarh, and Jammu and Kashmir had to visit special selection centres at Bhopal, Allahabad and Bangalore to appear before the Special Selection Board (SSB) that selects officers for the armed forces. SSB has five-day-long specialized selection process, which includes psychological tests, interview and various other personality tests to find officers like qualities of a youth.
It was a long pending demand of Punjab to open a selection centre in the state. The development is also significant because Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Punjab are largest contributors to various officers.
Out of 1,237 cadets that passed out from the prestigious Indian Military Academy (IMA) Dehradun 2014 and commissioned as an Army officer, 278 were from Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab and Chandigarh. It constitutes around 23% of the total cadets who became officers last year.
Formal intimation about the functioning of provisional selection centre (north) in Punjab was made by Lt Gen K J Singh, Army commander Western Command, on Sunday a special meeting with Punjab chief minister Prakash Singh Badal.
“The establishment of the selection centre at Kapurthala until completion of main campus at Ropar will fulfill the long pending
” said Gen Singh.
