Observing that a job in the armed forces would give immense satisfaction besides providing livelihood, Collector Neetu Prasad on Tuesday called upon the youngsters to join the forces to serve the nation.

Formally inaugurating the army recruitment rally that began on Monday at the District Sports Authority stadium here, Ms. Neetu said employment opportunities were aplenty in the Indian Army right now and the ongoing recruitment rallies were providing direct access to the job aspirants to approach the recruiting authorities.

Stating that the candidates need not spend money at any point of the recruitment process to get the placement, Ms. Neetu said the entire procedure was going on in a transparent manner and only right persons would be selected for the posts. She advised the aspirants not to go by the propaganda of agents and touts and encourage them by way of offering bribes.

Referring to the arrangements made by the district administration for the week-long rally, Ms. Neetu said food and drinking water were being provided to the aspirants at the venue.

Meals packets were being provided at subsidised price with the financial support from the Rice Millers Association, she said. She said that on an average about 5,000 candidates a day would attend the rally, for whom physical fitness and medical tests were being conducted by the recruiting authorities as per the schedule.

Additional Joint Collector B. Rama Rao said officials were posted at different wings to ensure smooth conduct of the rally. Army recruiting officer P. Singh said 1,323 candidates were selected for the rally after the certificate verification on the first day, for whom medical tests would be conducted after conducting the physical fitness tests. He advised the candidates to bring their original certificates along with three attested copies of each and 12 passport size photographs.
