Retired Major General Rajpal Punia on February 27 (Wednesday) advised the youth to aim for the officer-rank jobs in Indian Army, instead of satisfying themselves with soldier and entry-level posts.

Indian Army Calling, a training organisation for aspirants of jobs in the defence sector, conducted an interactive session for students on getting officer-level jobs in the army, navy and air force.

Speaking as the chief guest, the retired Major General said that proper planning and guidance from experts would help youngsters to get top jobs in various wings such as engineering, medicine, telecom, communications and others in armed forces.

Indian Army Calling founder Basava Venkataramana urged Mr. Punia to use his good offices for the establishment of a Sainik School in Srikakulam district. He said 372 youngsters were selected for various posts with the professional training being given at the institution.
