TURA, Mar 18 2017: In a bid to empower the future cops for the upcoming police recruitment written examination scheduled for March 24-31 and April 1 next, the district and police administration of South West Garo Hills on Saturday organised a day-long drill to instilled sense of confidence while enhancing capacity building.
At least 300 candidates from the district, who have cleared the physical endurance test, were engaged in a day-long drill where they were given tips, do’s and don’ts and correct ways of filling up optical mark recognition (OMR) sheets.
The candidates were also given lessons on English, Mathematics and General Knowledge.
In Meghalaya, under the Chief Minister’s Career Guidance and Counseling programme, capacity building measures are adopted to empower students, candidates appearing for various examinations.
For the past two years, students from Garo hills have been successfully appearing for different examinations with confidence, as they are being skilled and equipped with knowledge.
Last year, 60 candidates from Garo hills had qualified for Indian Army.
This year, 17 new police stations are being established in the state and about 1700 personnels are being recruited in special force – 10 and the state police.
“Response from the participanst was excellent and we hope that the candidates from the district will appear in the examination with great enthusiasm. We look forward to a positive outcome,” said Ramesh Singh, SP of the district said.
