Hundred Glorious Years of Information Warriors
I am really pleased to learn that the Corps of Signals is celebrating its 100th anniversary. On this momentous occasion, I extend my heartiest congratulations and best wishes to all the officers and men of the Corps.
The Corps has assimilated fast-paced changes in Communication and Information Technology in providing able and efficient support to the Army and our Armed Forces. In the recent past, the Corps of Signals has embraced a large number of technology intensive communication projects. These projects will provide fresh impetus to the march of our Armed Forces in becoming a Network- Centric Force and also revitalise our indigenous telecommunication industry. Their invaluable contribution in extending aid to civilian authorities during times of natural calamities has also been widely appreciated.
I have no doubt that the Corps will continue to harness latest technology to provide the cutting edge communication in further strengthening the defence preparedness of our Nation.
I wish the Corps of Signals continued success in its future endeavours.
