As many as 404 recruits from J&K were inducted into the Army at a passing-out parade on the outskirts of the city on Saturday. This is the second batch of J&K youth that has been inducted into the Army after the abrogation of Article 370.

The passing-out parade was reviewed by the General Officer Commanding (GOC) of Srinagar-based Chinar Corps, Lt-Gen K J S Dhillon, and was attended by over 1,000 parents and relatives of young soldiers from the J&K, besides number of civil and military officers.

“404 young soldiers from Jammu and Kashmir were recruited into the Army’s Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry (JAKLI) regiment after completing one-year strenuous training,” an Army official said.

He said the passing-out parade of the soldiers, belonging to different areas of Jammu and Kashmir, was conducted at the regimental centre of JAKLI at Rangreth on the outskirts of the city here.

The Corps Commander congratulated the young soldiers for their immaculate parade and impressed upon selfless service towards the nation.

He praised them for coming forward to join the security forces and also highlighted the vital role played by their parents in motivating their wards to join the noble profession.

The recruits who distinguished themselves in varied facets of the training were also felicitated.
