Naval Selection Board, Visakhapatnam is the newest selection center of Indian Navy which interviews candidates who have applied for Navy as the first preference. Being the newest selection board, the board works hard to set its reputation and stature. So you can expect a little lower selection rate from this board as compared to the others. However the potential candidates need not to worry as this won’t hurt their performance much.
Visakhapatnam (nicknamed Vizag) is the largest city, both in terms of area and population of Andhra Pradesh. It is located on the coast of Bay of Bengal in the north eastern region of the state. Visakhapatnam’s history stretches back to the 6th century B.C.E., and the city finds mention in ancient texts, such as the 4th century B.C.E. writings of Pāṇini and Katyayana.
Control over the city fluctuated between the Chola Dynasty of Tamil Nadu and the Gajapati Kingdom of Odisha until its conquest by the Vijayanagara Empire in the 15th century. European powers eventually set up trading interests in the city, and Visakhapatnam came under French rule at the end of the 18th century.
