No home leave for passing out IMA cadets, will join Army straight from the academy

In a break from convention because of the conditions emerging out of the progressing Covid-19 circumstance, the cluster of 333 Gentlemen Cadets (GCs) that will drop from the Indian Military Academy (IMA) this Saturday after the passing out procession (POP) won't get leave to meet their families as they should join their batallions directly from the foundation. The choice to not offer a mid-term reprieve to the recently comissioned officials has been taken to shield the officials and their relatives from conceivable Covid-19 contamination 

Consistently, the new officials, in the wake of dropping from IMA, used to return home leave before joining their individual contingent. 

This leave differed from case to case and from contingent to brigade and the term as a rule went from seven days to a month. "This time, the funneling will be finished by educators, officials and their spouses," Lt Col Amit Dagar, IMA's advertising official, said. 

To redress, the Army has made expand plans for a live broadcast of the occasion on some TV channels and furthermore via web-based networking media in a similar way as is being accomplished for the Republic Day Parade and the Army Day Parade. Uncommon records have been opened on well known internet based life stages and these are in effect generally circled. 

The POP for the spring term is booked to be held at Dehradun on June 13 and the Chief of the Army Staff, General Manoj Mukund Naravane, is relied upon to be the looking into official.
