The Assam Rifles Signal Unit celebrated its 27th anniversary on January 5. The highlights of the celebrations were a Pagal Gymkhana and Barakhana which were attended by a large number of Army and Civil officials. Brig R. S. Trehan, Director NCC was the Chief Guest.
The Signal Unit was raised on this day in 1957 to provide radio and line communication for the DGAR and all the Ranges and units deployed in the North-East.
The Assam Rifles Signal Unit not only provides the radio and line communication to the Force but it also extends these facilities to the Civil administrations and civilians in the far-flung and remote areas of the region at the time of crisis and natural calamities.
