Indian Army Parachute Regiment - Para Commandos

The Parachute Regiment is the main airborne regiment of the Indian Army.The parachute units of the Indian Army are among the oldest airborne units in the world. The first such unit to be authorized was on 15 May 1941, and the 50th Indian Parachute Brigade was formed on 27 October 1941, comprising the 151st British Parachute Battalion , 152nd Indian Parachute Battalion & 153rd Gurkha Parachute Battalion.

The Parachute regiment has a total of ten regular and two territorial battalions; of the regular bns, three are standard parachute infantry battalions, while seven are commando trained battalions. Formerly designated as "commando" units, they are now designated as special forces:

1st Battalion (Special Forces) - ex 1st Battalion, 2nd Punjab Regiment Raised 1761, conversion to Special Forces 1978

2nd Battalion (Special Forces) - ex 3rd Battalion, Maratha Light Infantry raised 1797, conversion to Special Forces 2000

3rd Battalion (Special Forces) - ex 1st Battalion, Kumaon Regiment raised 1813, conversion to Special Forces 2004

4th Battalion (Special Forces) raised 1961, conversion to Special Forces 2001 or 2003. It contributed to the Sri Lanka Indian Peace Keeping Force in the 1980s. The Battalion has the distinction of completing the Siachen Glacier tenure without suffering a single casualty on account of weather or enemy action. The battle honour of the battalion is Sadiqia earned during the 1971 war.

9th Battalion (Special Forces) raised 1966 as 9th Parachute Commando Battalion. The battalion was raised as an irregular force known as 'Meghdoot Force' by Lt Col Megh Singh, VrC of the Brigade of the Guards during the 1965 Indo-Pak War (Operation Riddle), where its exemplary performance prompted the higher authorities to regularize it and form part of the Parachute Regiment as the army's first commando battalion.

10th Battalion ((Special Forces) raised in 1967 as 10th Parachute Commando battalion from 9 Para Cdo. The battalion distinguished itself in the desert sector during the 1971 Operations.
21st Battalion (Special Forces) - ex 21st Battalion, Maratha Light Infantry raised 1985, conversion to Special Forces 1996
5th Battalion raised 1963
6th Battalion raised 1963
7th Battalion raised 1964
106th Territorial Battalion - Bangalore
116th Territorial Battalion - Deolali
31st Battalion (Commando) - Rashtriya Rifles

Three of the Special Forces battalions were originally trained for use in certain environments; 1st bn [strategic reserve], 9th Bn [mountain] and 10th Bn [desert] and the 21st Bn [jungle]. Currently all Special Forces battalions are cross trained for all environments.

The 8th Battalion became 16th Battalion, Mahar Regiment in 1976 before reconverting to the 12th Battalion, Mechanised Infantry Regiment. A sizable part of the battalion was retained in the airborne role for some time, forming the armoured element of the 50th (Independent) Parachute Brigade and equipped with their BMP2 Infantry Combat Vehicles. But due to administrative and logistic reasons, it was discontinued and their role being taken over by the para battalions themselves, with a platoon strength of each battalion being trained and equipped for the mechanized role within the brigade.

The 50th (Independent) Parachute Brigade comprises two parachute battalions, one special forces battalion, 60 Parachute Field Hospital, 411 (Independent) Parachute Field Company (Bombay Sappers), 622 Parachute Composite Company ASC, 50th (Independent) Parachute Brigade OFP (Ordnance), 50th (Independent) Parachute Brigade Signal Company, 2 (Independent) Parachute Field Workshop Company, 1 parachute field regiment (Artillery) (9 & 17 parachute field regiments), an air defence battery and a provost section. The President's Body Guard also forms part of the brigade as the pathfinders company.

The three parachute battalions in rotation form part of the parachute brigade alternatingly serving their field tenures in counter-insurgency/high altitude areas. One of the seven SF battalions too serves in the brigade on rotation. One of the two field regiments (9 Para Fd Regt and 17 Para Fd Regt) also forms part of the brigade while the other serves out its field tenure on rotation.

Two Territorial Army battalions, 106th (Bangalore) and 116th (Deolali) also form part of the Parachute Regiment. They form the elite part of the Terriers (as the Territorial Army is popularly known) and presently involved in COIN operations.

31st Battalion (Commando), Rashtriya Rifles, is also affiliated to the Parachute Regiment, for special operations conducted by the counter-insurgency force.

yup true! the indian SFs like MARCOS and NSG are used extensively in J&K to
fight terrorists and their ops are classified almost all of their ops are
classified!! MARCOS have earned the name of "dadhivala fauji" meaning the
bearded soldier and "magarmacch" ie the crocodile from the terrorists for
their awesome ops against infiltrators in lakes and surroundings at LoC!
they are one of the best bt they can get better! as of now no1 knows who's
the best but id give more points to SAS and seal team6

cont... After passing the 3 months additional probation for the SF , he
would have to serve 6 -12 months in hostile areas, only after which he is
given the Special forces tab and Balidan Badge(Sacrifice badge) And then
his training continues About 20-30% become a Para and get the Maroon
Beret........ Journey from an infantry soldier to Para SF....i would guess,
passing would be about 10-15%

96000 soldiers of the so called No. 1 army surrendered shamelessly and were
dispossessed of half of their land by the so called sick Indian Army..the
land is now called Bangladesh and is in a much better situation be it
economical and political stability..i wonder the grounds on the basis of
which they are ranked no.1..let me guess..no.1 in harboring terrorists,
toppling the elected civilian government, duplicitous standard, raping
their women, scrounging for international aid..hahaha Porkis.

The Indian PARAS are based on the British PARAS cause of the empire. The
history of the PARAS, is that the Russians began parachuting recreationally
during the early 1930's, and the millitary began using it (now the VDV),
but it was the Germans who first carried it off during the war. Churchill
was so impressed by it that in 1940, he decided to set up a regiment of
5000 british paratroopers (now just 1500) and were the first to have the
maroon berets, the world picked up on it later.

Автор PANGEA95 (2 года)
Yeah, Id say that the US and Indian SF are on par with each other, tbh its
hard to know which is the best SF today. Its just generally respected that
the SAS and SBS are because they were the first, and because of the old
empire, Britian still feels the need to covertly send UKSF to troubled
areas, and sort the problems out, i.e through secret training, assistance
and advising. Indians do alot of counter Al qaeda as well, as its on there
doorstep. But yeah its hard to know whos the best now,

Автор PANGEA95 (2 года)
Listen I'm British right, my grand parents were all born in India and I'm a
proud muslim (Most of my family in Pakistan now) but I will be joining the
British Paras next year and while I admit that the indian Paras may have
gotten a little better then our Paras, the idea of Special forces as a
whole was still taken from us by generals from across the worlds armies who
came to Hereford and saw the amazing SAS and SBS throughout the decades.
Its a known fact that SAS were the first SF unit ever
