Nearly 698 candidates took part on the second day of the ongoing recruitment drive for border battalions for Jammu and Kashmir police in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district.
On 3rd July the Jammu and Kashmir Police started a weeklong recruitment drive to fill around 1350 constable posts of two border battalions, one each for the Jammu and Srinagar region.
SD Singh Jamwal, Chairman Police Recruitment Board said that the recruitment process was started for the youth of border area as their employment has been hit due to cross border shelling.
“The idea to recruit youth from border areas was given by central teams who visited these areas following an uptick in shelling along LOC and International Border in 2018. They are the ones who face the brunt of cross border shelling,” he said
He added the notification for the jobs was issued in March 2019, but the recruitment process got delayed because of COVID-19. “This phase is for Kashmir division. People living in areas falling under 0-10 kilometers of LoC and IB have been called for recruitment,” he said.
He urged the youth to actively participate in these rallies as more jobs would be created soon. “The recruitment process will continue. After this, 800 sub-inspector posts will be filled and new battalions will be created,” he said.
