You have to express your idea and thoughts so that others can understand.  Doesn’t matter if expressive language is Hindi or English . If one expressed fake behaviour in profound English ,his efficiency is not going to work. So its important to be natural and communicate well.
Speaking in English is an attribute that an officer should have but that is only one quality. SSB is not about one quality, there are so many qualities that they will try to seek in you.


You should start preparing for better spoken English. It is a quality that you need to develop. Being an officer in armed forces, often you will get chance to interact with foreign nationals and you need to communicate well. Since you will be representing your country, you can’t afford to let your country down in any aspect, especially as pity as spoken English. Fluency in English is not a OLQ but Effective communication is.
