The Sashastra Seema Bal, under the Ministry of Home Affairs, often invites applications for relevant positions. The lowest ranking for an officer under the SSB is Sub Inspector (SI). For SI, a direct recruitment procedure is used. Candidates are chosen based on their performance in the test and physical efficiency. Obtaining two stars on the shoulder and becoming an SI requires completing a demanding 48-week training programme.
The soldiers’ stars are placed on their shoulders during the convocation ceremony, which takes place only after 48 weeks of intense training. The Centralised Training Centre SSB CTC SSB Srinagar hosted the passing out parade recently. SSB hired 11 new Ace Inspectors following a demanding 48-week training programme. For the sake of national security, they will now be in command of several stations in Naxal-affected areas, including the border between Nepal and Bhutan.
The chosen soldiers have extensive training lasting 48 weeks, during which they learn a variety of military techniques. In addition, they receive training in shooting, hand-to-hand combat, and rescue operations. In addition, their mental fortitude is enhanced for effectively leading their BOP and making the best choice at the appropriate moment. According to SI Annu Kumari, a lot of difficulties arise early in the training process; however, if you master time management skills right away, you may solve half of your problems.
If you have the desire to serve your country or wear the uniform, SI Pawan Preet says you will need to put in a lot of work since there are numerous obstacles to overcome. According to Pawanpreet, there are difficulties during the hiring process as well as more difficulties when starting work and serving after hiring; however, training is the first step towards overcoming these difficulties. The soldier gains mental and physical power during this training period. SMB Numerous outdoor exercises are also conducted during the training, according to SI Sumit.
These activities mostly involve living and surviving in the woods without the use of any sort of logistics. In addition, there is law and order upkeep, dealings, internal training, firing, combat training, and sports.
Sumit, who became SI after 48 weeks of training in SSB, says that the way of working in SSB is different from other paramilitary forces. Along with combat training for any hostile attack, attention is also given to the welfare and protection of the civilians living on the border.
