Common FAQ related to SSB Center Allotment & SSB Dates:
Question 1: How to Change the SSB Center Allotted to you?
Answer: Well, earlier it was the SSB center that provides two dates to the candidate’s i.e. Primary date and secondary date (Absentee Date) when the candidate can report to the SSB center and undergo the SSB Selection Procedure. But the center allotment has never been select by the candidate. It is given by the Center. So, you can’t change the SSB Center.
Question 2: how to change SSB Dates?
Answer: After Indian Army has transformed their offline procedure to the online platform, they have allotted the SSB dates selection to the candidates. The Indian Army releases the notification about the time range in which selected candidates can select the SSB dates. However, due to the excessive count of SSB candidates, only one date selection is offered. The concept of Absentee is not present (basically for technical Entries).
Question 3: What if you don’t have the degree?
Answer: If you are not having your graduation degree, it’s important to either ask for a Provisional cum Character certificate that can be easily received by the respective college. During the documentation verification, you can show the Provisional Certificate. However, if possible prefer to get your degree along with all the other educational documents mentioned in the call-up letter.
Question 4: What about Traveling Allowance for SSB?
Answer: Well, with the increase in the number of entries, the format of traveling allowance for SSB has also been changed. The initial format of SSB traveling allowance was that a candidate was given TA for each entry, for the first time. This means that TA for SSB was given on the basis of Officer Entry. But now the provision has changed to Commission level. Now the TA is given to the candidate on the basis of permanent/short service commission, for the first time only.
