Dehradun, Dec 11, (PTI) :

As many as 534 cadets passed out from the prestigious Indian Military Academy today following the ceremonious Passing Out Parade reviewed by Army Chief General V K Singh.

A total of 518 cadets became officers of the Indian Army, while 12 others joined paramilitary force Assam Rifles. Four cadets who passed out today are from neighbouring country Bhutan.

The maximum number of officers passing out this time was from Uttar Pradesh at 102 followed by Uttarakhand with 58 and Haryana with 47.

Earlier, Gen Singh inspected a guard of honour by the cadets as army helicopters showered petals from the sky following which the pipping ceremony was held.


It was a proud moment for Gajender Kumawat, who received the coveted Sword of Honour for being the best all-round cadet. Kumawat, hailing from Madhya Pradesh, is the first person in his family to join the Indian Army.

Jaidev Dangi was awarded the gold medal for standing first in  the order of merit in the regular course.
