The Indian Army has mooted a proposal to hold online written test for recruiting jawans in the force to maintain transparency in the recruitment processes. By the end of this year, trial of online written test will be conducted at the Lucknow and Uttarakhand recruitment offices. If the trial is successful, the format will be applied pan –India in the 2013-14 recruitment process. The approval for making the recruitment process high-tech was given a go-ahead recently here. To get rid of any kind of glitch, master software has also been prepared at the Lucknow headquarters.
According to sources, the Pune wing of the Army is conducting the online test for the recruitment of the jawans. The Army has inducted the highest male recruitment population (RMP) of 17. 3 per cent from Uttar Pradesh. However, the youth hailing from villages are not much adapted to computers. A thousand questions will be loaded on the computer with the help of the master software. About 60 applicants in Lucknow and 30 applicants at other nine recruitment centres in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand will be able to appear for the online test. Each applicant’s question paper would be different from the other on the computer.
