The Corps of the EME has com­pleted 75 years of its rais­ing on Satur­day.

As part of the 10th Corps Re­u­nion, an Ad­ven­ture and Equip­ment Dis­play event was or­gan­ised at the Milkha Singh Sta­dium, 1 EME Cen­tre in Se­cun­der­abad.

Lieu­tenant Gen­eral K.K. Aggarwal, DGEME & Se­nior Colonel Com­man­dant fe­lic­i­tated two Padma Bhushan, three Padma Shri, six Ar­juna Awardees, 14 Sena Medal (Gal­lantry) win­ners and six­teen out­stand­ing sports­men of the Corps of EME.

The of­fi­cer also re­leased the first day cover and a postal stamp to com­mem­o­rate the Plat­inum Ju­bilee and the 10th Corps Re­u­nion of the Corps of EME in the pres­ence of over 4,500 vet­er­ans, serv­ing per­son­nel and their fam­i­lies.

The Corps of Elec­tron­ics and Me­chan­i­cal En­gi­neers was raised on 15 Oc­to­ber 1943 as Royal Elec­tri­cal and Me­chan­i­cal En­gi­neers. Ever since its in­cep­tion, the Corps of EME has been an in­te­grated, in­ter­twined and in­sep­a­ra­ble com­po­nent of the gal­lant In­dian Army. It has grown over the decades into a po­tent force mul­ti­plier and en­gi­neer­ing sup­port provider for the com­bat el­e­ments of the Army. The Corps has worked with self­less ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment to en­hance the Army’s com­bat po­ten­tial by ex­ploit­ing the power of tech­nol­ogy and in­no­va­tion.
