Who We Are

The academy started its journey from a scratch and carried its forward march under the able leadership of Gen Bikram Singh, Brig JS Kanwar Col. DP Vashist, Col Kuldip Singh(VSM) and all other venerated veterans who relentlessly strived to bring the institute on to a firm platform. From the inception the academy strived for the upliftment of the young generation of the country, including those belonging to the state of Himachal Pradesh. Since the national interests are supreme along with the state's interests, it was imperative for the academy to chart out its course of action in line with this laudable concept. therefore, academy set out for itself an aim to find the ways and means, through which it could offer its services. The best was to target the unemployment, a seriously growing cause of unrest among our young population. The academy took upon itself an onerous task and gave a battle cry against the unemployment.

With this end in view the academy drew out its short and long term strategy. There were two important areas where immediate attention was to be focused: (a) Infrastructure (b) Strategy.


By the end of November, 2021 our trainees who entered different branches of Armed Forces, Para-Military Forces and Police Forces have gone up to 6805 (6633 Boys & 172 Girls). These are the figures of those trainees who have physically reported in the Academy before their departure to various training centres for training. There is a large number of those who never inform us due to lack of time when they are required to join at the earliest by completing formalities. Yet we are sure that many have not come back to us to inform. We on behalf of our Academy like to impress upon all the trainees and their parents and wards to please inform us about their induction in the Defence forces. We make this request with the idea that while preparing our Roll of Honour in the Academy, all of our selected trainees find their place on this Honour Roll which is published from time to time.
