Visit NDA 2009 – Golden Passing Out
In continuation of my earlier intimation, we have finalized details with the Comdt. NDA. Our course passed out on 30th May 1959 and as luck would have it the summer course in 2009 is also passing out on 30th May. As such our visit could not be accommodated during this period. Visit of our course has therefore been finalized from 4th June to 6th June. The NDAS has certain administrative constraints. They have laid down a maximum strength of 35 couples and a charge of Rs. 3000/- per couple and Rs. 2000/- for a single officer / lady to make it cost effective. In the past the courses visiting them has been far exceeding this number.
As proposed in my earlier letter we wish to present a trophy to the NDA for which we shall need at least Rs. 1000/- from each officer. I have a received a mixed response so far from the course mates. Some Offrs proposed the names of other colleagues who have yet to confirm to me themselves. I therefore request all offrs to please confirm their visit and forward a Bank Draft drawn in the name of “16th NDA/ 25th IMA Course Account” payable at Delhi directly to Col. Kuldip Singh, SC the Secretary of the course association by 20th November. We have to forward this amount to NDA at the earliest. I would also request all friends to shake up the fence sitters and help them make up their mind. The feedback from the other course who have visited NDA in the past has been very good.
With regards and hoping for a very prompt action,
