The government is inviting all students from Delhi University (DU), Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Delhi Technological University (DTU), Netaji Subhash Institute of Technology (NSIT), Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) and Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU) to join the Commonwealth Games workforce and volunteer to serve thousands of visitors coming from all over the world to India. The students are invited to join the "Delhi United" campaign aimed at enrolling volunteers for 2010 Commonwealth Games.
"The visitors will be interested in knowing Delhi's rich history and culture. To make their task easier and make them feel at home, we need self-motivated, helpful, energetic and confident people," said an official press release from the Government.
In order to be easily accessible to students the Directorate of Information and Publicity has provided them with a platform to register themselves by visiting the nearest university or college registration centre with four coloured photographs (size 45mm X 35 mm).
The prestigious event is also getting a helping hand from the National Cadet Corps (NCC) which is preparing approximately 5000 cadets from various schools and colleges of the Capital to serve the nation.
NCC Director General, Lt General R. K. Karwal, lauded the volunteering services offered by the cadets on the eve of its 61st anniversary. He anticipated a prominent role of the NCC during the CWG as it did for the Asiad Games.
"We are continuously thriving towards contributing to the forthcoming grand event and are ready to provide the organizing committee as many cadets as they require. The committee is continuously in touch with us to fit our cadets in their plan. Their training mainly involves traffic control, crowd management and disaster management. They did a commendable job during the Sarojini Nagar blasts," said Lt. Gen Karwal.
