Remount Veterinary Corps
The Remount Veterinary Corps of the Indian Army is in charge of breeding, rearing and training all animals used by the military personnel. It traces its origin from a “Stud Department” that was set up in 1779 in Bengal. Apart from veterinary services, it is responsible for preventing zoonotic diseases. Personnel from the RVC have been roped in by the armed forces to help manage the COVID-19 crisis, especially to run patient facilitation centres.
