According to the reports, Lt Gen K J S Dhillon on Saturday stated that the recruitment drive scheduled to be held in the first week of October is being conducted to fill in 3,000 vacancies.

The first recruitment will start on 3-4 October. Prior to that, 15 days of training will be imparted so that the boys can compete and get recruited. We are working on some more vacancies and will announce in the future,” he told reporters in Srinagar.
Dhillon also stated that young children from the Valley were taken for a tour to Delhi, Ajmer Sharif and Jaipur so that they get exposure to developments in technology and other spheres.
