This centre started operating in October in the Uttara Kannada, Dakshina Kannada, and Udupi districts. This programme will fulfil the desires of the economically disadvantaged community. There was no free facility for this community’s residents to join the military or police forces. The neighbourhood lacks the financial resources to pay for training. The welfare department for underprivileged communities oversees the opening of the institutions.

The training would last for four months and end in February 2023. Each centre has the capacity to train 100 people. The most candidates possible have registered for these centres in the three coastal districts.

The minister for underprivileged groups, Kota Srinivas Poojary, is responsible for this ambitious scheme. Veera Rani Abbakka in Dakshina Kannada (DK), Koti Chennaya in Udupi, and Hinja Nayak in Uttara Kannada are the names of the centres.
These centres provide all the theoretical and practical training needed to join the military. The trainers are active-duty and retired military personnel. Theory, physical fitness, and martial arts are also taught from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. There is no charge for food, lodging, or education. Similar facilities are being planned for Belagavi and Koppal as well.

Officer for DK’s backward communities, Rashmi S. R., stated:
“The BCM department has established a pre-military training centre for underprivileged communities.” In Mangaluru, the centre is functioning near KPT. “This training will be helpful for youth who aspire to join the military through the Agnipath Scheme and other military recruitment.”
