He joined the 96th Course of the academy in Kilo Squadron and passed out from the Mike Squadron as Battalion Cadet Captain.
On May 13, 2000 Col Gudur commissioned into the Sikh Li Regiment as Lieutenant. He immediately became Ghatak Platoon Commander. With his hard work and dedication he lifted the Divison Trophy as platoon commander. He also achieved top 10 position in the JC course at Infantry School Mhow. He also held the prestigious appointment in Armoured Brigade at Jaisalmer.
He also served as a Tactical Training Officer at the NDA from August 2009 to March 11. He is popularly known as 3G among cadets for his image as a strict trainer. Col Gudur was also appointed as the Military Advisor to the President of Seychelles from March 14 to March 16. On October 4, 2016 he took over the command of Sikh Li Regiment as the Commanding Officer at Tibri Cantt, Gurdaspur, Punjab.
