Assam Rifles Training Centre and School (ARTC&S) celebrated its 52nd Raising Day with great fervour. The day started with a “Mandir parade” addressed by religious teachers of all major religions of the country, followed by a ‘Special Sainik Sammelan” and later by a Barakhana. According to a defence release, Brig D Anbu, SM, DIG, Commandant Assam Rifles Training Centre & School addressed all ranks of the Centre while speaking at the Special Sainik Sammelan wished all ranks a very happy and prosperous new year. The Commandant exhorted all ranks to put in their best efforts in maintaining the institution as one of the best training Centres of the country. Emphasising that the Centre in the last 51 years, had achieved a lot in terms of expansion of infrastructure, providing need based training to young recruits and trained soldiers, he said that in the New Year, the centre have to look ahead and further improve our standards. “The task ahead is enormous and it would take time and effort to make the Centre a model training centre. Each individual is required to contribute with his might towards improving the ambience, infrastructure and training facilities in the Centre”, he added. The Commandant further said that about ten thousand personnel of the Force undergo training at the Centre every year including recruits, trained soldiers and officers, and added “We are required to set very high standards in training, turn out and discipline. Since this will have a direct bearing on the standard of our troops, this necessitates us to be proactive and improve our standards further by keeping pace with time and technology”. On conclusion of the Sainik Sammelan, Brig Anbu presented the ‘Commandant’s Banner’ jointly to Lakhimpur Training Battalion and Sukhovi Training Battalion as these both battalions secured equal points in the events organised during 2009.
