Dehradun, Jun 10 (PTI) Chief of Army Staff Gen Manoj Pande on Saturday asked IMA graduates to keep updating their skills to deal with the challenges of rapidly changing dynamics of combat.

Addressing the Passing Out Parade at the conclusion of the IMA's spring term course, Gen Pande said, "The dynamics of combat are rapidly changing with fast paced development of technology and the battle space has become more complex." In such a scenario, technical prowess, mental agility, critical thinking, and quick response will be the key to success, he said, and asked the newly commissioned officers to continuously enhance their competency.

"Your journey does not end with your commissioning into the army. On the contrary, it is just the beginning of a life of commitment towards self-improvement," the army chief said.
