"There was a recruitment rally at INS Hamla, Malad, this morning for senior secondary recruits. We were expecting a good response from volunteers," an official said.
"The response was overwhelming and crowd control created a bit of confusion in the early hours today, which was subsequently handled very efficiently by the local police and Navy officials," he said.
The recruitment drive is going on smoothly now," the official added.
