"The Army chief directed the formations to ensure readiness and be prepared to decisively deal with emerging challenges that may develop," said the Army PRO.
The Brigade is a fully airborne brigade and is a decisive force multiplier, he said.
During 1971 operations, airborne operations by the Para Brigade accelerated the momentum of operations leading to surrender of Pakistan Armed Forces in Dacca (Bangladesh), he added.
The Army chief also complimented the Brigade for maintaining the highest standards of training, operational readiness, morale and motivation and exemplary synergy with the Indian Air Force.
He also interacted with all ranks, reviewed their operational preparedness and specialist training, added Colonel Vaishnava.
