The Assam Rifiles, established in 1835 originally as the “Cachar Levy”, has a storied history of protecting interests and maintaining order in Northeast India. It was later renamed in 1917 and has since played a crucial role in border security, counter-insurgency, and upholding law and order in the region.

Known as the “Sentinels of the North East” and “Friends of the Hill People”, the force operates under the command of an officer with the rank of Lieutenant General and is headquartered in Shillong, distinct from other central paramilitary forces typically based in New Delhi.

The Silver Jubilee Parade not only commemorated the commissioning of new officers into one of India’s most historic paramilitary forces but also underscored the ongoing commitment of the Assam Rifles to secure and support the diverse communities of Northeast India.
