Hope for young men

Borengajuli Army Camp under XIV Dogra Regiment in collaboration with the Bhergaon District Committee Youth, BPF jointly undertook an initiative to motivate and guide the young men to join the Army and Assam Rifles recently.

As part of the initiative the units established Help Desks at Bhergaon, Borengajuli, Kochubil, Tangla, Khoirabarii and Kailaigaon to provide single window information on recruitment procedures into the defence services.

Information pertaining to the eligibility conditions, selection parameters, conduct of the recruitment process and entrance examinations is provided to the aspirants. These young men are also given a free medical checkup and are thereafter given sustained guidance and training to prepare them for the recruitment.

These initiatives, a first of their kind in the district have generated tremendous confidence, enthusiasm and interest in the people to join the defence services and are in consonance with the primary interest of the Army and Assam Rifles in assisting the youth of the area to become useful citizens of the nation in this erstwhile militancy affected district.
