If you wish to see the most prestigious and premier institute that imparts training to our to be Army, Navy and Air Force officer this place is a must visit. Located in a sprawling campus on the outskirts of Pune, this establishment is comparable to the best military academies in the world.
You will need to get a permission to visit the campus and ideally you should seek help of a friend or relative who is in the Indian Armed Forces to set up a visit for you.Dignitaries from around the world have visited this institution. If you are in high school it is worthwhile to even attempt joining the course and become an officer of our prestigious Armed Forces. Only the best of the candidates get the honor of becoming a cadet in this institution.
