    Hi ,

    Sorry if this subject has been raised before. I am sick and tired of Government websites. In the age when China and USA war against their rivals in cyberspace, Indian Armed Forces have useless defunct websites which are of no help to a human belonging to 21st century.

    When I was below 25 years old I had access to internet and Yahoo and searched for any and all information to enlist in Short Service Commission but failed to find a single useful reliable piece of information.

    I am now 34 years old and see posts and news about recruitment in Reserve Army (Territorial Army) and fail to find a single link or phone number or postal address or email address where I can send my resume or beg to send my resume.

    I don't need this shit. I qualify for Resident Visa of Canada and other developed nations. Yet my patriotism is spit upon by Indian Government websites and listed landline phone numbers.

    I hope this forum has some answers regarding any one human or one department where I can just send my bio-data and expect that they find me useful enough to respond to my query.

    1. Qualifications: M.Phil, MA Psychology, M.Com Management, B.Com, Microsoft Certified Professional, 2nd dan Karate
    2. Experience: 6 years with Reliance, 2 years with Capgemini, a year with Blue Star Infotech and Accenture. Running own epublishing company since 2008 till now
    3. Lifetime Member of Indian Association for Occupational Health, and Indian Association of Clinical Psychologists
    4. Wish to be a member of Territorial Army
    5. No disabilities. 20:20 vision. Athletic body, height 175 cm, weight 82 kilos
    6. Just someone tell me one simple way or TEN SIMPLE STEPS to being noticed by Territorial Army of India.

    7. Alternatively, I would like to be in a Foreign Legion of Britain or any Commonwealth Developed Nation if you know the procedure.

    Best Wishes,
    UD

    So recruitment is once a year ? Why am I not surprised. If it was run like a corporation then there would be talented people there and less corruption in defence deals.

    Even IGNOU now has admission twice a year. Private Institutes train students in IT throughout the year with admissions every month.

    I guess I will stick to my MNC job instead of dreaming of adventure with these pencil pushers.

    It has been quite a few months now

    1. No reply to my emails at the given email contacts
    2. No reply to snail postal mail sent with Self Addressed Stamp Envelope to them
    3. Phone numbers are either of unused telephones or otherwise unattended

    Does anyone have a link or news on the second phase of TA recruitment. Any advertisements noticed by anyone?

    4. Is anyone here a member of the Western Army Quarters in Mumbai or Pune? Can you help me with valid contact name and numbers for Recruitment Office.

    Best Wishes,
    Ujjwal Dey

    How to Join Territorial Army of India

    The Territorial Army (TA) provide excellent opportunities for employed young men to join the Indian army and earn the glorious uniform.

Not only this Territorial Army brings you lots of other opportunities, in short it provides you an adventurous life with your regular job.

    What is Territorial Army India?

    This is an excellent opportunity given by Government of India to young men who are well settled in their professional life.

    That is a great brochure but entirely useless.

    The links mentioned for the contact and download form are defunct since time immemorial.

    None of the websites have any information on TA Admissions or Contacts.

    Thanks for trying.
