Corps Day for Indian Army JAG Corps

Today is Indian Army JAG Corps Day. Ajeen Kumar advises that the bill to consolidate and amend the law relating to the government of the regular Army was introduced in the Constituent Assembly on 21 December 1949 and passed by Parliament on 20 May 1950 as the Army Act, 1950 (Act XLVI of 1950). It came into force on 22 July 1950 on receiving the assent of the President.

Happy Birthday to all concerned. And thanks to Ajeen for calling this to our attention.

Postscript: a news article about Northern Command's observance of the day can be found here.
