Defence Training Academy Opened In Chamoli Dist


In a glowing tribute to Victoria Cross winner Darban Singh Negi, his wish to promote locals in defence services has been acknowledged.

The Youth Foundation has revived a British-era school that was built in Karanprayag to honour his gallantry services during World War I, by starting a residential training academy for locals aspiring to join the armed services in Chamoli district.

Negi, a 39th Garhwal Rifles soldier, had gallantly fought in World War I in 1914. To honour his gallantry, the Britishers had built the school in his native village in Karanprayag. But for decades the building had been abandoned until early this year when the Youth Foundation started a campaign to conserve the structure and start a dedicated residential camp for army service aspirants.

Located close to Pindar river bank the school retains the colonial architecture and has a huge ground where youngsters are now seen doing morning drills. Read More
