Chandigarh, November 18

As a prelude to the passing out parade for the autumn term 2020 at the Indian Military Academy (IMA), Dehradun, the ‘pipping ceremony’ of three gentlemen cadets from Vietnam was held at the academy on Wednesday.

The ceremony was conducted a few days ahead of the scheduled passing out parade at the request of the Embassy of Vietnam in Delhi so that all Vietnamese trainees across Indian Army training establishments could return to their country together on completion of their respective training under the Vande Bharat Mission.

The cadets were pipped, that is pinning the badges of ranks on their epaulettes on being commissioned as officers on culmination of training, by the IMA Commandant, Lt Gen Harinder Singh, in the academy’s historic Chetwode Building.

These Vietnamese cadets are part of the 208 foreign trainees from 11 friendly countries currently undergoing training at the IMA despite Covid constraints. Vietnam has traditionally maintained strong ties with India and these efforts are part of military diplomacy efforts towards further strengthening this strong partnership.
