The Border Security Force (BSF) has established a facilitation centre on its campus at Rajouri to extend help to unemployed youth of the district to register themselves online for various posts in the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) and National Investigation Agency (NIA).

In remote and far-off areas, no such facility is available and many times, the unemployed youth remain unaware about the vacancies in the CAPF.

Recently, the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) has announced 54,953 posts, including 7,646 posts for women, for recruitment of constables (general duty) in the CAPF, NIA, SSF and Rifleman (GD) in Assam Rifles.

The online submission of applications has already started from August 17 and the last date for the submission of applications is September 17 till 5 pm.

“The facilitation centre at the BSF sector headquarters has been established under the civic action programme.

The aim behind setting up the centre is to help aspirants from the district get registered for these posts,” a BSF spokesman said.
