DIMAPUR — The attestation parade of 300 hundred recruits was held at the parade ground of the Assam Rifles Training Centre and School (ARTC and S), Shokhuvi, on Saturday.

The attestation parade marked the completion of 56 weeks of gruelling training in battle craft, weapon handling, jungle lane shooting and specialisation in counter insurgency operations, a defence release stated.

“This attestation parade was unique for the fact that it had only technical entry recruits of Operator Radio Line (ORL) trade and the parade was led by Maj Rishabh Rana, an officer of Technical Entry Scheme (TES) who has done B Tech in mechanical engineering and is posted at the ARTC and S,” the release informed.

The attestation parade was reviewed by the Major General Suresh Kumar Bhambhu, Sena Medal, Inspector General Assam Rifles (East) in the presence of Colonel Rajiv Chaudhary, Officiating Commandant of ARTC and S and other senior officers of the Indian Army and the Assam Rifles.

Addressing the recruits, the reviewing officer highlighted the rich history and legacy of the Assam Rifles as the oldest paramilitary force of the country. He mentioned that Assam Rifles is responsible for border security, counter insurgency and maintaining law and order in Northeast India.

Bhambhu emphasised the huge responsibility being bestowed upon the shoulders of newly attested riflemen as the sentinels of the North East. He called on the newly attested recruits to serve the nation with all sincerity besides asking them to keep pace with technology.

He also stated that as technical trade soldiers, their job was even more challenging given that their job responsibility is over and above that of general duty trained military soldier.

He further congratulated the passed out recruits and their parents on successful completion of training and wished them success and happiness in all their future endeavours.

The newly passed out rifleman will now join their respective units in all frontline duties.

After the passing out parade, the reviewing officer personally met the overall best recruit operator radio line P Shashi Kumar, best recruit in information and technology recruit operator radio line Kunal Bol, best recruit in radio communication recruit operator radio line Akash Lakra and best recruit in line communication recruit operator radio line Kunal Mahto.
