Gen Pande exhorts NDA Cadets to further spirit of jointness in service

New Delhi, May 24 (UNI) Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Manoj Pande on Friday, while encouraging the NDA cadets to further the spirit of jointness as they grow in service, emphasised about the revolution in military affairs which are mostly driven by technology.
The Army Chief reviewed the passing out parade of 146th course of National Defence Academy at Khetarpal Parade Ground, NDA, Khadakwasla.
He congratulated the passing out course cadets, medal winners and the Champion Squadron for their hard work and overwhelming performances. General Pande also conveyed his sincere gratitude to the proud parents for sending their motivated wards to join the Armed Forces.

A total of 1,265 cadets participated in the parade of which 337 cadets were from the passing out course. This included 199 Army Cadets, 38 Naval Cadets and 100 Air Force cadets including 19 cadets from Friendly Foreign Countries including Bhutan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Myanmar and Maldives, an official statement said here.

A contingent of 24 female cadets, presently in their third and fourth term of training also took part in the parade.

The 146th course was inducted in June 2021 and after completion of three years of rigorous military training, the cadets passed out in a grand ceremonial event. The cadets will now join their respective Pre-Commissioning Training Academics.

Battalion Cadet Captain (BCC) Shobhit Gupta won the President's Gold Medal for standing first in the overall order of merit, Academy Cadet Adjutant (ACA) Manik Tarun won the President's Silver Medal for securing second position in the overall order of merit and BCC Anni Nehra won the President's Bronze Medal for claiming third position in the overall order of merit.

In a solemn ceremony at the Hut of Remembrance, NDA which followed this Passing Out Parade, the Army Chief paid homage to the brave hearts whose names are etched in the hallowed precincts.

The Hut of Remembrance was constructed by the cadets of 10th to 17th Course NDA and has since then been a symbol of bravery, courage and selfless services. The walls of this hallowed memorial recite the sagas of undaunted courage, valour and innumerable sacrifices made by the alumnus of National Defence Academy over the last 75 years.
