      Hello Rashid…
      First… You’ve commented on the wrong topic.

      However, the induction/training is only for few hours. You are to come with 1400 for id card, placement letter, and your training materials, and perhaps with two passport photographs. You should be able to return back to your state, same day after the induction.

      Good luck
