History is created today during the Passing out Parade of Officer Training Academy (OTA) held at Chennai, as Academy Cadet Adjutant (ACA) Preeti Choudhary received the Sword of Honour whereas Senior Under Officer (SUO) Vreeti was awarded with the silver medal. This is for the first time in the history of OTA that two lady Cadets received the top honours. Lieutenant Chaudhary and Lieutenant Vreeti belong to Haryana.

In September 2010 lady cadet, Academy Under Officer (AUO) Divya Ajith Kumar became the first female cadet to secure prestigious ‘Sword of Honour’ and President’s Gold Medal. Again in March 2015 lady cadet, AUO M Anjana was awarded ‘Sword of Honour’.

Today 234 cadets are commissioned into the Indian Army after completing the rigorous training of 11 months.
