Officers Training Academy Chennai conducted its passing out parade on 29th May 2021. Even during the COVID-19 crisis in India, the training schedule has been going on at full speed inside the academy. Usually, the OTA Chennai POP is conducted in March every year but due to the Covid-19 crisis, it has been conducted in May 2021 this year. Aspirants and OTA Chennai lovers were able to watch the live stream of the OTA Chennai Passing Out Parade in DD. Due to the pandemic, only limited guests are allowed during the passing out parade.
A total of 167 Gentlemen cadets and 31 women cadets of the Short Service Commission officers passed out of the Officers Training Academy Chennai. 5 gentlemen cadets and 7 women cadets from Bhutan also graduated from the OTA.
Since the passing out parade for the senior batch in the Academy held today, the fresh batch of cadets would report only after that POP for their training schedule. “It is not that every September and March batches keep on coming. It is only when one batch passes out, the next batch will come,” the official said.
Passing Out Parade and Pipping Ceremony held at OTA, Chennai for Batch SSC-111 & SSC(W)-25.
