Citizens' army celebrates 69th raising day
Udhampur, October 09 (Scoop News)-The Territorial Army (TA) also known as the Citizens' Army, celebrated its Raising Day on 9th October 18 at Udhampur. It was on this day in 1949, under the first Governor General Shri Rajagopalachari that the Territorial Army was raised. It was conceived as an opportunity for civilians to serve in uniform, fulfilling a desire of many to become 'citizen-soldiers'.

The Territorial Army has evolved over the years, enhancing its role to include ecological tasks and very recently in 'National Mission Clean Ganga'. Operationally, the TA units of Jammu and Kashmir have contributed in providing safe and secure environment for civilians in areas where they are deployed.

On the 69th Raising Day, Lieutenant General Ranbir Singh, Northern Army Commander, complimented all members of the TA fraternity for their devotion towards duty and indomitable spirit while working under trying and difficult conditions. He acknowledged their tremendous contribution in maintaining the sanctity of the nation's borders and fighting terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir. He also exhorted them to uphold the high traditions of Northern Command in all future endeavours.
