Army would follow a revised pattern for recruiting soldiers in different categories through Army recruitment rallies under which only those candidates who qualify a written exam would be called for further tests, a senior officer said.

Maj Gen J K Marwal, officiating DG (Recruitment) Army Headquarters, said that the proposal was under consideration at the government-level.

It has been proposed that the written examination will be held first and qualified candidates would be called for further tests.

“This will be a major change in the recruitment process which will reduce administrative arrangements and requirements. It will be more convenient,” he told reporters on the sidelines of an Army recruitment rally here.

He said that Jaipur, Ambala and Chennai Zones have been selected for the pilot project under the proposed system.

The written test is presently held after the candidate clears physical fitness test and medical tests. Marwal said that the entire recruitment system is online which has no chances of any irregularities and candidates should also be aware of the fact that no one can help them in getting recruited in the Army except themselves.

He also interacted with the candidates who turned up in large number to participate in the recruitment rally at CISF ground in Amber area located on the outskirts of the city.
