Lucknow: Army will now hold separate recruitment rallies at Agra and Jhansi and not club it with the one at Mainpuri, an official said on Wednesday.

"Agra and Jhansi districts are major districts with a large number of recruitable male population and hence we want them to be tested at a separate exam rather than clubbing them with the Mainpuri rally," a spokesman said.
