Sunday, 31 May 2015 | PNS | Dehradun

After a distinguished service of more than 40 years, the Commandant of the Indian Military Academy (IMA), lt Gen Manvender Singh,  superannuated on Saturday. Commissioned in the brigade of Guards of Indian Army on December 22, 1974, lt Gen Singh holds the unique distinction of serving as Commandant of prestigious Indian Military Academy (IMA), Dehradun, for a period of three years and eight months.

A highly decorated soldier, Gen Singh was awarded with Vishisht Sewa Medal (VSM), Ati Vishisht Sewa Medal (AVSM) and Param Vishisht Sewa Medal (PVSM) during his outstanding career spanning over five decades. In his tenure many positive changes were witnessed in the training activities and academic courses of IMA. He is also credited with increasing the facilities of the cadets of the academy.

It is worth mentioning here that General Singh is retiring just days before the Passing out Parade (POP) of new batch of cadets. In his absence the POP of June would be under the overall command of Deputy Commandant of IMA, Major General YS Mahiwal. The Navy Chief Admiral Robin Dhowan would be the reviewing officer of the POP slated on June 13.

It is learnt that due to delay in the promotion process of the Army, the position of IMA commandant could lie vacant till the month of September.
