Pratibha Patil President Pratibha Patil today called the Corps of Signals as a "strong and vibrant force" which is playing a vital role in providing effective communication systems to the armed forces to make it truly networked and responsive.

Inaugurating the Centenary Celebrations of the Corps of Signals here, Patil said the 90,000-strong force was engaged in diverse activities including provision of communication, information technology, electronic warfare and signal intelligence.

The Corps of Signals was raised on February 15, 1911 at Fatehgarh as two Signal Companies. "Today, the Corps of Signals enters into 100th year of its odyssey, as communicators for our defence forces. It was on this historic day in 1911, that the first two Signal Companies were raised at Fatehgarh," Patil said. "It is now a 90,000 strong and vibrant force engaged in diverse activities,," she said.

Noting that communications have always played a vital role in the functioning of the armed forces, Patil said effective communication systems were essential to build a truly networked and a responsive force.

"Mandated to provide secure and reliable strategic, operational and tactical communications, the dedicated officers and men of the Corps of Signals, have performed their duties with excellence by providing vital communication support to the Armed Forces, through the years, both in times of peace and war," she said.
