Post Report - KATHMANDU, June 8

Citing the escalating Maoist insurgency in Nepal, the Indian Government has reduced its around eight recruitment camps across the country to only one in Sunsari district. "The Indian Army Pension Camp, Dharan has been forced to adjust slight changes by reducing its around eight recruitment camps to only one in Dharan due to the ongoing Maoist insurgency," the National News Agency (RSS) reports from Itahari Municipality of Sunsari.

The recruitment shall take place in three phases this year on August 1, October 17 and December 1 only in Dharan and Itahari of Sunsari this year. Earlier, the recruitment camps used to be opened at Taplejung, Ilam, Tehrathum, Dhankuta, Gaighat, Okhaldunga, Solukhumbu and Diktel districts, RSS reports. Indian Army Major Amit Kumar Chatterjee has been quoted in the report as saying that there are around 60,000 Nepalis presently serving in the Indian Army and the number of those already retired stands at around 130,000.

As per the earlier set schedules, around 600 Nepalis were to be recruited in the Indian Army this year. The well-known Nepali Gurkha soldiers, who have fought various wars bravely across the globe, used to be recruited as per a tri-partite treaty only in the British Army during the British colonial rule over India. Later, the Gurkha contingents were broken down between British and Indian governments after India became independent. Joining the Indian and British Gurkha army has remained a popular trend, mostly among the youth in the villages, and has also remained one of the major sources of income to the country. Major Chatterjee has been further quoted as saying that there were 24,000 applicants for 80 vacant seats in the Indian Army for Gurkhas last year.
