Earlier, General Rajendra Chettri, the Chief of the Nepalese Army, was conferred with the title of Honorary General of the Indian Army in February 2017 during his first visit to India after assuming office.

This tradition is a reciprocal arrangement to honour each other’s Army chiefs with the honorary titles. It has been continuing uninterruptedly since it began in 1969.

During his visit to Nepal and Bangladesh, General Rawat will be visiting several important military installations and will be meeting high-ranking dignitaries including the Prime Minister, Defence Minister and the Chief of the Army Staff.

General Bipin Rawat took charge as the new Chief of the India Army Staff in December 2016 by succeeding General Dalbir Singh Suhag.
