PROGRESSIVE GROUP TAST
PROGRESSIVE GROUP TASK (PGT)
• This is first outdoor task. You must be very attentive during the briefing
given by the G.T.O.
• Remember that outdoor tasks in SSB are NOT about PHYSICAL
STRENGTH, it is all about your MENTAL ABILITY.
• PGT has four stage task, one after the other which are progressive in
their degree of difficulty.
1. There are some rules to be followed, such as the ground between the
start and finish line is out of bounds other rules are:-
(a) GROUP RULE
(b) RULE OF DISTANCE
(c) RULE OF INFINITY
(d) RULE OF RIGIDITY
(e) RULE OF COLOUR
• Following above rules the candidates have to complete the task in a
specific time frame
(a) The idea is to find the fastest route, as a group, over the obstacles
fixed on ground between the start and finish line.
• For performing the task some helping material are given like
WOODDEN PLANK (PHATTA), WOODDEN POLE (BALLI) and
ROPE. A load is also given which has to be carefully carried by the
group collectively while doing the task.
• The group may also be given a ONE TIME MOVABLE DRUM OR
The time given for this is usually 40-45 minutes depending on the G.T.O and also based on the difficulty of the task. When one task is finished the group has to move to the next Task. So the group has to finish the tasks at a stretch.
No leader is nominated and the whole group is allowed to participate in this. The person who is having analyzing capability, who is able to apply his basic physics (such as fulcrum, cantilever) in real life, would feel comfortable to finish these tasks. Also he will be able to show his leadership qualities
The obstacles are painted in three colors namely:-
White:- The candidate ,the load and the helping materials can touch the
obstacle at this region.
Blue:- Only the candidate can touch the obstacle in this region and not
the helping materials and the load.
Red:- The candidate, the load and helping material should not touch the
obstacles in this region
Important Tips For P.G.T:-
a) Never look at the G.T.O while doing the tasks.
b) Understand the structures in front of you and see how best you can use it
to your advantage
c) Give workable ideas to the group if you don’t have any idea just help the
idea given by others.
d) Avoid violating the rules during the tasks, and in case you violate the rule,
just do correction yourself.
e) Always be an active participant in the group and be cooperative
f) Consider others ideas if they are better than yours.
