Best Remount Veterinary Corps (RVC) Coaching in Kanpur – MKC


Major Kalshi Classes is the BEST RVC COACHING IN KANPUR 

The Remount Veterinary corps is an administrative and operational branch of the Indian Army and one of the oldest formations. 

It is responsible for the breeding, rearing and training of all animals used in the Indian Army. 

Today, RVC has a well-organised infrastructure in the field of equine and canine breeding, rearing, care, management and disease control training. The corps is the source of specialised dogs, horses and mules to be used in Army, Navy, Air Force, para military forces, Police and CISF. The corps prides itself as the largest breeding and training organisation of equines and canines in the country.

The corps has proved its mettle in training of dogs in the specialised fields as tracking, explosive detection, mine detection, avalanche rescue operation, search and rescue, infantry patrolling and guarding. To check out thefts and pilferage, the Army dogs are being trained in Crude Oil Leakage Detection (COLD).

The corps is actively engaged in conduct of several high-tech applied research projects sponsored by the Government of India, Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science and Technology, Defence Research and Development Organisation, Indian Council of Agricultural Research, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, JALMA Institute of Leprosy and National Institute of Immunology.

The corps boasts of a Central Military Veterinary Laboratory (CMVL) which is the only laboratory of its kind to undertake applied research in relation to animal diseases, disease diagnosis and nutrition in addition to routine diagnostic work. CMVL has been aptly recognised by the Ministry of Agriculture as a national referral Lab. The laboratory is in the process of upgradation to P4 bio-safety level to handle emerging diseases and pathogens. The corps is responsible for veterinary public health throughout the Army and carries out inspection and certification of food products and items of animal origin. Provisioning of veterinary cover to Army animals deployed in inhospitable terrains is the responsibility of RVC.

The Indian Army only invited qualified male veterinary graduates for the Short Service Commission (SSC) in the Remount Veterinary corps of the Indian Army.  


The RVC officers and PBOR have won a number of medals. These include one Arjuna Award, one Shaurya Chakra, five Sena Medals (Gallantry), two Sena Medals (Distinguished), twelve Ati Vishisht Seva Medals and fifteen Vishisht Seva Medals in addition to one OBE and one MBE to Indian RVC officers during the British rule.

The Corps contributes to the logistic needs of the Armed Forces in the equine and canine fields. The breeding of specialist horses for equestrian sports and training of dogs to meet the emerging security needs has, of late, acquired particular significance.

Role of Remounts and Veterinary Corps

Some of the main functions of Remounts and Veterinary Corps include procurement, rearing, breeding, training of Army dogs for specialised tasks such as guarding and tracking. Prevention, control, treatment of infectious and contagious diseases, inspection of food of animal origin and prevention of zoonotic diseases are other responsibilities of Remounts and Veterinary Corps.

Remounts and Veterinary Corps is one of the major arms of Indian Army. Before the 1914-18 war the Remounts Directorate was responsible for the purchase, rearing and issuing of remounts to the three non-silladar regiments, the British cavalry and other artillery units. It was also responsible for the army transport animals except for their purchase, organisation of the animal resources in the country for war, fitness of the animals so produced for the use of the army, mobilisation of fighting units or of transport, mobilisation of remount units for the field and control and distribution of horses in the units. Some breeding centres were also supervised by the department.

Remount Veterinary Corps (RVC) is one of the oldest services of the Indian Army with a glorious history spanning over 242 years and a scintillating presence. The Corps has an enviable track record of relentless service in animal based logistics and operational support to combat teams. The Corps has set soaring benchmarks in highly divergent role which involves breeding, rearing and training of Army animals, their health management, treatment, immunization and also tactically employing them for military purposes.


The stud department was established in Bengal during Dec 1779. The present day RVC evolved out of a Board formed in 1794 by the British for breeding the horses locally to meet their growing demand since the horses were not easily available. It’s since this day the Corps has never looked back and delivered upto the expectations of the Nation. It was an integral part during two world wars as part of the British empire. Post Independence RVC continued its contributions during various conflicts with our hostile neighbours and also in the fight against insurgency and terrorism inflicted from across the border. The Corps has acclaimed achievements during various operations including J&K in 1947, NEFA in 1962, Indo-Pak war of 1965 and 1971 and Kargil conflict of 1999.
