Are you shortlisted for SSB interview and want to know how to report to the SSB venue? Go on and find out where to report and whom to contact in order to appear in SSB interview.
SSB interview is must if you want to become an officer in Indian armed forces. No matter which service from Indian Air Force, Indian Navy and Indian Army you choose to join, you have to go through the Services Selection Board. You have to attend a written exam in order to get a call letter for SSB interview.
However, in few special cases, SSB will send call letters after shortlisting the candidates based on merit in their academics. So after you are short-listed for SSB interview, you will be asked to report at particular time and date by the SSB board. Most probably you will be asked to come on first day of SSB interview. Though the instructions are clearly mentioned in the SSB call letter, many students are still in doubt that where do they need to reach.
First reach MCO in order to go to SSB centreFirst of all check the city in which your SSB is scheduled. So after figuring out the city and state, make your reservations in advance so that you will have a comfortable journey. Also in the SSB call letter, it will be clearly mentioned that the candidates should report to the MCO at Railway station. Here many candidates will be confused when they hear MCO term as they are less likely to know what MCO is and where it will be located. MCO is located at major Indian railway stations to help defence personnel in India with their train journey.
Generally MCO is located in the first platform of Railway station. But it is always better to ask in enquiry counter at Railway station about the exact location of MCO office. At MCO representative of SSB centre will be waiting for you. So just go to them and they will guide you further to the SSB centre. Generally a military coach/bus will come to pick up all SSB candidates at Railway station. And once in the group, you will face no problems.
