  • Army chief Rawat conferred Nepal Army General honorary rank

On his first foreign visit after assuming office, Chief of Army Staff, General Bipin Rawat is on a visit to Nepal and Bangladesh from March 28 to April 2.

Government of India is taking a concerted effort to nurture good ties with neighbours and several high level visits to these countries at regular interval has only helped India to cement ties with its neighbours.

General Rawat was conferred the title of "Honorary General of the Nepal Army" by HE Smt Bidya Devi Bhandari in a grand ceremony at the Sheetal Niwas today. The national defence forces of India and Nepal have a tradition of conferring such titles to chiefs of their armies since 1950. Gen Chhetri was conferred a similar honour by President Pranab Mukherjee in February 2016.

Commending the role of the Nepal Army in global peacekeeping operations, Rawat said India wants to see a prosperous, peaceful and developed Nepal.


He is also to visit the Indian Army's pension camp in Pokhara and go on a pilgrimage to Muktinath and Pashupatinath.

Gen Rawat then paid a courtesy call on Khand and discussed various aspects of military ties between India and Nepal.

The Indian Army has presented seven horses to the Nepal Army, media reports said on Wednesday. The delegation will interact with the president and the prime minister of Bangladesh and the senior military leadership.

Chief of Staff of Nepal Army Purna Chandra Thapa received Rawat in Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu on Tuesday.
