11th Raising Day Of Andaman Nicobar Tri-Services Command

It was in the aftermath of the Kargil Operations and on the recommendation of the Group of Ministers, that the ANC was raised as the first Unified Command comprising the Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard. Lt Gen NC Marwah, AVSM is presently the Commander-in-Chief, Andaman & Nicobar Command (CINCAN).

Over the past ten years, the Command has achieved strategic coherence and a high level of operational efficiency, both in joint operations and in rescue and relief operations, in this Southeastern frontier of the country. Increased surveillance efforts, welfare measures and promoting the Andaman as the springboard of India's future policies, have been the hallmark of ANC's activities in the years gone by.

The ‘11th Raising Day’ marked various events. The day began with a ‘Ceremonial Parade’ comprising platoons from all four Components of the Joint Command. On display were the Army BMPs, Ships dressed overall and a flypast by the Chetaks, Mi-8s and Dornier aircraft. The activities of the day also included a Barakhana with the defence personnel’s and their families at Military Station, Birchgunj.
