242 Fresh recruits inducted into JAKLI
Srinagar:  242 fresh recruits were today inducted into Army's Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry (JAKLI) regiment at a passing out parade here on Saturday, 5th March 2016, with a top Army officer expressing satisfaction over the turn out of locals in the recruitment rallies. 

The recruits, hailing from different parts of the state, were inducted into the regiment after 11 months rigorous training in various activities including tactics, firing, physical fitness and mental robustness, at the Rangreth regimental centre on the outskirts of the city. 
"This was the 103rd recruit course of the JAKLI Regiment Centre and a total of 242 recruits participated in the parade and became brave-hearts of Indian Army and the regiment," General Officer Commanding (GOC) of Srinagar-based Chinar Corps, Lt Gen Satish Dua said. 

Lt Gen Dua, who took over as the Colonel of the JAKLI Regiment last month, said the number of local youth joining the Army has been "definitely" increasing. 

Last year two Territorial Army battalions were raised here and in Jammu which was not there earlier, he said.
