IMA Passing Out Parade December 2015: 469 Cadets Inducted Into The Indian Army As Officers

A total of 469 cadets were inducted into the Indian army as officers in Uttarakhand's capital city Dehradun after a passing-out parade at the prestigious Indian Military Academy

The historic and imposing Chetwode Building of the Indian Military Academy (IMA) was the perfect backdrop to the spellbinding passing out parade of 519 gentlemen cadets of the 137 Regular and 120th Training Graduate (TG) Courses, who were the cynosure of all eyes on Saturday morning. While 469 of the cadets were commissioned in the Indian army, fifty were foreign cadets from countries like Afghanistan, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Mauritius, Seychelles and Sri Lanka.

Over 2,000 people had gathered at the venue much before the parade began. The last night drizzle had made the air nippy and there was a distinct chill which however slowly dispersed as the sun came out.

For most people though, their eyes were riveted on the majestic Chetwode Building named after Philip Chetwode, commander-in-chief of Indian forces who delivered a stirring address at the inauguration of the academy in 1932, a part of which has now become the IMA credo. Even before the parade started, the audience could hear the loud roar of the cadets, practicing at the far end of the academy.

The parade began soon after the arrival of the reviewing officer, army chief, General Dalbir Singh, who arrived on a four-horse carriage, originally belonging to the Maharaja of Patiala, which was gifted by the erstwhile royal family to the academy.

Speaking on the occasion, Gen Singh, said that he was transported back in time to 42 years ago, when as a gentleman cadet, he had participated in a similar passing out parade while graduating from the academy. “This is a very important day in your lives as you join the Indian Army and take the pledge of serving the country,” the Army chief said, advising the cadets to “lead by example.” He also quoted from the IMA credo to emphasize the responsibility which each officer had: “The safety, honour and welfare of your country come first, always and every time. The honour, welfare and comfort of the men you command come next. Your own ease, comfort and safety come last, always and every time.

The majestic parade came to an end after each of the cadets had taken the ‘antim pag’, the final step inside the Chetwode Building symbolising their induction as officers in the Indian Army. A highlight of the parade was the fly past of three choppers that dropped flowers on the venue from the air which lent a festive touch to the entire atmosphere.
Although the reviewing officer changes every year, there are some aspects of the parade which are standard and are looked forward to by all the attendees. Amongst them, the helicopter fly past with the showering of petals on the cadets as they move towards the 'antim pag' and again a fly past with the flags of army, navy and air force, as the last cadet takes the final step, are moments that are etched in the minds of visitors. 
So far IMA has trained 57854 officers

The Indian Military Academy held its 136th Regular Course passing out parade in Dehradun on Saturday.Hundreds of civilians and armymen gathered to witness the spring term passing out parade (POP) of the Indian Military Academy (IMA) in front of the famous magnificent Chetwode building under a blue summer sky, Decked up in army uniforms, 687 gentlemen cadets (GCs) took the "final step" and marched with discipline and perfect synchronization .687 Gentlemen cadets including 71 foreign cadets from 11 friendly nations - 44 from Afghanistan, 12 from Tazakistan, four from Bhutan, one each from Maldives, Lesotho, Fiji, Kazakhstan, two from Seychelles, Nigeria and Tanzania - joined the passing out brigade at the drill square.

The Chief of Naval Staff Admiral RK Dhowan was the Reviewing Officer at the Parade.He reviewed the parade as the GCs marched with pride and elan. While congratulating the newly-commissioned officers on successful completion of their training at IMA, Dhowan said, "IMA is a unique institute and valour and wisdom have always been its motto. The young cadets should remember that the word 'impossible' should never exist in their dictionary and they should serve the nation fearlessly with pride in their hearts." 

The naval chief added, "Commitment, courage, compassion, credibility and integrity, if followed, will pave a strong future for these young gentleman cadets." 

The reviewing officer also emphasized upon the need to remain updated on contemporary and futuristic strategies, tactics, weapon systems and equipment and urged cadets to equip themselves with the required personal, social, psychological and intellectual traits to meet the ever-evolving security challenges of the country.

Also present were anxious parents, wardens and guardians who witnessed this memorable moment in the life of every cadet as they crossed the Chetwood threshold to become officers of the Army.

It was a memorable day for young officers as well as the culmination of hard work, determination and training eventually saw their dream come true.

After the POP, the piping ceremony (in which parents remove the shoulder flaps to commission the cadets as officers) was held and the celebrations ended with the newly-commissioned officers taking an oath to safeguard the nation at all costs and excitedly doing push-ups on the ground and wishing each other.
