The Corps of Military Police Centre & School (CMP C &S) at Bengaluru held the attestation parade. The parade was conducted as a low key event while observing all Covid protocols.

The soldiers went through an “intense 61 weeks of training on aspects related to Basic Military training, Provost training to include all forms of policing duties and management of prisoners of war, ceremonial duties and skill development to include driving and maintenance of all vehicles and signal communications”.

While extolling the virtues of dedication to duty, righteousness and selfless service to the nation, the Commandant of the CMP Centre & School expressed his confidence that the training imparted to them and the standards achieved would hold them in good stead and help them prove to be a force multiplier at their new units, located across varied terrain and operational conditions in the country.

The government had approved the induction of women in military police in January 2019, and plans to have 1700 women soldiers by 2036, in batches of 100 recruits per year.
