The signing of the MoU marks a milestone in the ongoing efforts to mitigate risks and minimize casualties for Indian Army soldiers in the event of avalanche accidents, particularly in the challenging terrain of the Himalayan region.

By formalizing this partnership, both entities aim to streamline coordination, share resources, and leverage each other’s expertise to optimize rescue and relief efforts in the face of adversity.

The signing of the MoU underscores the Indian Army’s unwavering commitment to prioritizing the safety and security of its personnel, especially those serving in challenging and hazardous environments.

The Central Command’s proactive approach towards bolstering emergency response capabilities reflects its dedication to ensuring the highest standards of operational readiness and welfare for its troops operating in mountainous regions.
