SSB: Service Selection Board

SSB is created by the Defense Ministry of India to conduct the interview for recruiting officers in Indian soldiers. It is designed to test “officer like qualities” in the candidates.
An Service Selection Board (SSB) board comprises assessors who are officials in the Indian Armed Forces and have their specialization as Psychologist, Group Task Officer(GTO) and Interviewing Officer.
