Indian Army’s Jammu Kashmir Light Infantry (JKLI) seems to be a big and lucrative option for Kashmir youths. About 260 young boys from Jammu and Kashmir joined the Indian army according to recent reports.

The Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry (JAK LI) is an infantry regiment of the Indian Army. The regimental center is in Srinagar’s Airport Complex at Avantipur with a winter setup near Jammu. Its regimental insignia consists of a pair of crossed rifles. The regiment mostly consists of volunteers from the state of Jammu & Kashmir. 50% of the regiment’s troops are Muslims while the rest represent other ethnic groups from the state.

The youth were inducted in the battalion after completing the one-year course of JKLI battalion at Regimental Centre in Srinagar’s Rengrath. They joined the army with an aim of devoting their lives in service of their nation.

During their passing out parade, the young soldiers inspired one and all as their voice echoed in the Valley. Their passing out parade, depicting graduation of recruits and their transformation into young soldiers, was reviewed by Major General MK Das, Colonel of the regiment, JKLI. The event was attended by the parents and relatives of the young soldiers along with a number of civil and military dignitaries.
