UDHAMPUR: Army in Northern Command is doing yeoman service in the state of J&K. While guarding the frontiers in the state, it is also helping the State Govt and the local population in various projects. 

Reaching out to the people in the remote areas and meeting their social needs by helping them has been the basic philosophy of the Army in the Northern Command.

As part of Operation-SADBHAVANA, EME Battalion (Tpt) at Udhampur conducted a Medical Aid Camp at village- Dehuri, District- Udhampur (J&K). Dehuri is a remote village located 40 km in the interiors of Udhampur district. 

The villagers had approached the Army authorities for conducting a ‘Medical Aid Camp’ as this area is deprived of good medical facilities.
