    • Vivek, you can use Hindi in ssb, if u can speak effectively. There is no restriction on to use hindi in ssb.

      • Firstly we divided team into two parts A,B… Team A will go to hill to save slided people Team B’s two memebers will go to jakhra village to inform people of jakhra village and two will go to “first aid” accident people and when their others members come with carts and people they will carry to hospital.. where they will meet ndr team to tell about the matter of karla hills..and also with help of pco they will inform railway authrotiy team to fish plate..

        • There is no need to inform railways about fish plates because it must be railway officials who had removed the fish plates because of maintenance and they will schedule trains accordingly. It is not said in question that any people or gang has removed the fish plates. So there is no need to worry about that.
