The Indian Army is celebrating the 74th Army Day. Why do we celebrate Army Day on January 15? Every year, the Indian Army celebrates Army Day on January 15.
It is because, on this day in 1949, the Indian Army got its first chief. Lieutenant General KM Cariappa took over as the reins of the armed force as first Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Army from General Sir Francis Butcher, the last British Commander-in-Chief of India.
