Lt Gen Navneet Singh Sarna Commends Training Standards at Artillery Centre Nashik

Lt Gen Sarna’s visit underscores the importance of the Artillery Centre in Nashik and its ongoing contributions to the nation’s defence forces.

Lt Gen Navneet Singh Sarna, the Director General Recruiting & Colonel Commandant of the Regiment of Artillery, recently visited the Artillery Centre in Nashik. During his visit, he interacted with the Agniveers and praised the Centre for its exceptional training standards and administration.

The Artillery Centre in Nashik, the largest of its kind in Asia, has a rich history. Located behind the Pandav Caves, the Centre was relocated from Pakistan following the India-Pakistan partition in 1947.

Since then, it has been a key military facility for the Indian Army, known for its advanced artillery training, including the use of the renowned Bofors gun. Over the years, the Centre has trained more than 270,000 armed forces personnel, playing a crucial role in bolstering India’s defence capabilities.

Currently, the Artillery Centre is one of the selected venues for the rigorous 31-week training program for Agniveers. This program encompasses both basic military training and specialized training in four key disciplines: drivers, gunners, technical assistants, and radio operators.

The Centre’s commitment to high training standards ensures that the Agniveers are well-prepared for their roles in the Indian Army.

Lt Gen Sarna’s visit underscores the importance of the Artillery Centre in Nashik and its ongoing contributions to the nation’s defence forces.
