Press Releases


Rashtrapati Bhavan : 15.10.2019

A group of officer-trainees of the Military Engineer Service called on the President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind, today (October 15, 2019) at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Addressing the officer-trainees, the President said that the Military Engineer Service (MES) has an illustrious history. Being one of the oldest and largest Government infrastructure development agencies, MES provides dedicated engineering support to the Armed Forces enhancing their operational preparedness. It also provides engineering support to other defence organisations such as DRDO, Ordnance Factories, and Coast Guard. He appreciated MES for taking proactive initiatives for the creation of the National War Memorial.

The President said that no doubt, Military Engineer Service Officers will perform a stellar role as civil servants and work for the people of India. But what makes their role particularly important is that they serve the soldiers who guard our frontiers day and night. He urged them to be innovative in their approach to think how the life of the soldiers can be made more comfortable as most of them lead a tough life, living in inhospitable terrain and braving hostile climate.
