We thank all our course mates and our Lady members who made an effort to join on this historic event travelling from around India and parts of the world. We were 70 strong who gathered on the Lawns of Kota House to start the day with 2 mins silence in the memory of the departed With nostalgic memories old friends met each other with hugs galore. Pictures were being clicked by one and all. The celebrations continued till upto 3 pm after which the crowd started to depart having, by then, enjoyed a sumptuous spread. Some of the pictures of the function are attached here.

We extend our warm good wishes to you all till we meet again.

On the 12th of June 1990, a course get together was organised in the local Air Defence Artillery Officers Mess by the members from the Army on completion of 30 years of service. It was attended by all serving army officers posted at Delhi attired in Summer Dress No.1 with full medals including the newly instituted 30 years service medal and all retired officers residing in the NCR. It was during this get together that the idea of forming a Course Association was conceived. After some discussion, it was unanimously decided that the association be given the name of "16 NDA / 25 IMA Course Association" and will include all officers of 16th NDA course and 25th IMA course.12th Technical Graduates course which passed out alongwith 25th IMA course were also included in the association.It was decided to form an adhoc committee out of the officers available in Delhi/likely to be posted soon,to work on the furtherance of this idea. The first nominated committee consisted of the following officers:

Working President Maj Gen KS Mann  
Members Brig GS Uban

Type of membership chosen by members was purely voluntary as decided by them.Contribution by Life members was Rs.2000/- whereas it was Rs.500/- by Basic members. The annual get togethers held(food and drinks) were free for Life members whereas the Basic members and any guests of members paid the proportionate expenses as decided from time to time based on the likely expenditure to be incurred on the function. A bank account of the association in the name of "16 NDA / 25 IMA Course Fund" was opened in the South Block Branch of the Syndicate Bank located in the Defence Headquarters.Maj Gen KS Mann and Col KS `Malik were the first joint signatories of this account.
