VISAKHAPATNAM: The Naval Selection Board (NSB) for the induction of trainees into the officer cadre of the Indian Navy was inaugurated by Vice Admiral Bimal Verma, Chief of Staff, Eastern Naval Command, here Monday. With three boards currently operational at Coimbatore, Bangalore and Bhopal, the fourth NSB of the Navy, operating presently from the Navashakti Nagar, is expected to reduce the shortfall in induction of officers into the force and also motivate more youth from the local populace to take to the white uniform.

While the Board has started operations in earnest with the selection of 10+2 technical trainees entry batch, a Government sanction is likely to see to the establishment of the first full-fledged Naval Selection Centre, comprising three Boards and operating from the Port City in the near future.

The Naval Selection Board, Visakhapatnam, is presided by Commodore AS Baghel, a senior assessor with over four years of experience as President of the NSB at Coimbatore.
