‘RVC – 233 YEARS YOUNG’
Remount Veterinary Corps (RVC) is one of the most dedicated services of the Indian Army with a glorious history spanning over 233 years and a scintillating present. The Corps has an enviable track record of relentless service in animal based logistics and operational support to combat teams. The Corps has set soaring benchmarks in highly divergent role which involves breeding, rearing, training the animals, their health management, treatment, immunization and also tactically employing them for the military purposes.
The present day RVC evolved out of a Board formed in 1794 by the British for breeding the horses locally to meet their growing demand since the horses were not easily available. It’s since this day the corps has never looked back and delivered upto the expectations of nation. We were an integral part during two world wars as part of British empire and post Independence RVC continued contributions during various conflicts with our hostile neighbours and also in the fight against insurgency and terrorism inflicted from across the border. The Corps has acclaimed achievements during various operations including J&K in 1947, NEFA in 1962, Indo-Pak war of 1965 and 1971 and Kargil conflict of 1999.
