India has a long history of military service
India has a long history of military service. The Indian Army was first established in the 18th century as the East India Company’s army to protect its commercial interests and to expand the British Empire in South Asia. It later became an independent force during World War II when it took on British forces in Burma (now known as Myanmar). The Indian Army is currently one of the largest standing armies in Asia; however, it still faces challenges such as limited funding and recruitment issues due to low pay rates compared with other countries’ armies such as China or Russia.
The Army has undergone many reorganizations since its foundation in 1947
The first Army Corps of Engineers was formed in the same year, with the formation of three divisions and one brigade each. The Indian Army Corps of Signals was also organized at this time and became operational on 1 December 1948. This corps consisted of a Headquarters Signal Regiment, three brigades: an Armoured (Arm) Brigade, Mechanized Infantry (Mai) Brigade and Infantry (Inf) Brigade; four independent regiments: Signals Regiment (Sig), Mechanical Transport Regiment(Trak), Engineers Stores Depot(Esd), Ordnance Sub Depot(Odd).
The present-day Army has three components – Armoured Corps, Field Artillery Corps (FAC) and Infantry Corps
The Armoured Corps is responsible for armoured fighting vehicles, tanks, armoured personnel carriers and other land-based combat vehicles. It is further subdivided into two wings – the Eastern Regional Command which includes Assam and Nagaland states; while the Western Regional Command comprises Jammu & Kashmir state as well as Himachal Pradesh & Uttaranchal regions.
The Field Artillery Corps (FAC) provides artillery support to the Indian Army during operations or defence preparations against external threats such as insurgency or terrorism. It also undertakes tasks related to field maintenance such as ammunition supply etc., but does not conduct offensive operations like direct fire support provided by BMRCs/FRUs/SFs etc., unless specifically tasked so by higher command authority after careful consideration of available resources available within their respective areas of operation.
The Corps Headquarters i.e. the Armoured Corps Centre and Field Artillery Centre are based at Delhi in National Capital Region (NCR)
The Army Day is a national holiday in India and other countries. It commemorates the formation of the Indian Army by combining and uniting various British Indian forces on 15th August 1947, as part of the Partition process.
The celebrations associated with this day include parades and ceremonies at various locations across India. In some places, there are also cultural programs such as plays or concerts which celebrate army history as well as showcase recent achievements made by soldiers in their fields of expertise.

The regiment currently consists of two commando battalions – 1st Commando Battalion (1 Cdo Bn) & 2nd Commando Battalion (2 Cdo Bn).

The Indian Army is an integral part of the defence system of India, which was established on August 11, 1757. The Indian Army has played a pivotal role in safeguarding our nation’s sovereignty, integrity and territorial integrity; defending public order; maintaining peace at home and abroad; protecting lives and properties; preventing crime against women with special emphasis on women’s safety under law by ensuring that all those who commit crimes against women are brought to book.
The army has always been the protector of democracy as well as an instrument for achieving economic progress through national development plans like “Garibi Hatao” (Eradicate Poverty), “Namami Gange” (Clean Ganga) etc., which have been successfully implemented over the last few decades. In addition to this role played by armed forces in protecting national interests at international level also contributes significantly towards global peace & security through its actions against terrorism in different parts across globe including Afghanistan after 9/11 attack on US soil which had threatened world peace & security due to lackadaisical approach towards tackling terrorism problem faced by nations involved therein since then onwards following 9/11 attack suffered by Americans resulted into creation new alliances between various countries around world especially USA seeking participation from third parties like China Pakistan Japan Russia etc., but most importantly none other than India itself where country’s foreign policy makers saw need based upon strategic interests rather than domestic politics alone motivating them towards reaching out towards such neighbors who were willing participate peacefully while simultaneously forming strategic partnerships with these nations under umbrella organization called Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).
