Bundi (Rajasthan): Aspirants aiming to serve in the Indian Army will no longer have to undergo paper-based examinations as the force has introduced online tests to ensure transparency in recruitment process.

"For the first time in the state, CBT is going to be introduced for the entrance test," Deputy Director General Recruiting (Rajasthan), Brigadier Rakesh Kant Sharma, told media.

The CBT pattern would also be implemented for the entrance tests of other posts in the army, Brig Sharma said, adding that "it would stop human interference in selection".
