Colonel Commandants

All regiments and Corps of the Indian army are authorized Colonel Commandants to maintain and perpetuate the Corps traditions, advise on Corps matters relating to Corps charities, memorials, customs, dresses, etc; to arrange Corps reunions at periodical intervals; and to watch over the progress of the Corps over the years.

The Army Educational Corps chose Maj Gen Thakur Mahadeo Singh, DSO, an infantry officer as its first Colonel Commandant in 1950, as it had no senior officer for this covetous appointment. In due course of time, the Corps was able to elect Colonel Commandants from amongst its own officers.
