1. The Regiment of Artillery Association formed on 01 Jun 1964, was initially started on 01 Apr 54 as the Artillery Benevolent Association with only Persons Below Officer Rank as members. However, with establishment of RAA, Officers were included with the aim of fostering friendship between serving and retired gunners and to assist them and their families. The broad aims and objectives of the Association are:-

(a) To provide assistance to the serving and retried gunners and their families.

(b) To provide distress relief to the members or their next of kins.

(c) To provide scholarship to the children of the members who are studying in professional colleges.

(d) Maintain archives and museum.
