Chandigarh, December 1
On a recruitment sortie, the IAF is landing in educational institutes. It has so far identified 13 cities, including Chandigarh, for carrying out fast-track selections (FTS) in these institutions.

In Chandigarh, the IAF has set up a centre at Chandigarh Engineering College (CEC) in Landran, near Mohali, for the purpose of picking up engineers for recruitment as commissioned officers in the aeronautical engineering branch from professional colleges across Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh.

It will be holding a three-day FTS session in the college from December 3. If queries are an indicator, over 1,000 students from colleges across this region are expected to take part. Although the last date for submission of applications is over, those who could not apply will be allowed to appear.

The course is scheduled to begin in July next year. Engineering degree holders, including girls, with at least 60 per cent aggregate, along with final year students, are eligible to apply.

Only final year students with 55 per cent aggregate up to the sixth semester in electronics, telecommunications, electrical, instrumentation, computer science/ engineering and communications or any combination of these subjects would be eligible. They should be born between July 2, 1979, and July 1, 1989.

Giving details, CEC Chairman Satnam Singh Sandhu said for recruitment through the FTS, the students would have to undergo an engineering knowledge test comprising two multiple choice question papers of general engineering and one other.
