Indian Navy Officers To Stop Carrying Batons With Immediate Effect

The communication further read, “Effective immediately, all personnel, including those from the provost, are to discontinue carrying batons.”

On Saturday, the Indian Navy declared its decision to discontinue the colonial tradition of baton carrying, effective immediately.

It has been mandated that a ceremonial baton be appropriately placed in the office of the leader of each unit, where it will be handed over during a change of command.

In a statement released by the naval force, it was mentioned, “Over time, the practice of naval personnel carrying batons has become customary.

The symbolism of authority or power portrayed through the handling of a baton is a relic from the colonial era, no longer fitting in the transformed Indian Navy of Amrit Kaal.”

The communication further read, “Effective immediately, all personnel, including those from the provost, are to discontinue carrying batons.”

The Navy has now issued directives for a ceremonial baton to be suitably positioned in the office of the head of every unit’s organization. The official transfer of the baton is to be done within the office during a change of command only, as per the force’s directives.

The Indian Defense forces have initiated numerous measures to eliminate practices from the British era. The Indian Navy has also modified its insignia.

Unveiled last year by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the new ‘Nishaan’ or ensign of the Indian Navy discards the remnants of the colonial past and embodies the country’s rich maritime heritage, as per the Navy’s statement. The new ensign draws its inspiration from the seal of Chhatrapati Shivaji.
