The Border Security Force (BSF) has opened at least 18 facilitation centres at several places in four Maoist-hit districts in Odisha for helping local youths get recruitment in central armed para-military forces (CAPF).
The centres have been opened in Koraput, Malkangiri, Rayagada and Nabarangpur districts, a BSF statement said today.
Generally, youths from the remote areas do not get a chance to compete with the mainstream for employment despite their talent and eligibility. It is also due to lack of awareness about the application process, it said.
The BSF camps in these remote areas would ignite a hope amongst the local and tribal youths for a job in CAPF to serve the nation and fulfil their dreams, the statement said.
The centres would assist the youths in preparing for the competitive examinations and also help them in the application process, besides creating general awareness in schools and colleges and distributing pamphlets about the recruitment, it said.(PTI).
