IMA full form


The Indian Military Academy, Dehradun (otherwise called IMA) is the officer preparing Academy of the Indian Army. IMA was built up in 1932.

Amid the Indian autonomy battle, Indian pioneers perceived the requirement for a nearby military foundation to address the issues of a furnished power faithful to sovereign India. The British Raj was hesitant to commission Indian officers or to allow nearby officer preparing. Until World War I Indians was not qualified for commission as officers in the Indian Army.

Following the encounters in World War I, where Indian warriors demonstrated their strength, Montague-Chelmsford Reforms encouraged ten Indians for each year to experience officer preparing at the Royal Military College, Sandhurst. In 1922 the Prince of Wales Royal Indian Military College (now known as the Rashtriya Indian Military College) was set up in Dehradun to get ready youthful Indians for admission to Sandhurst. The Indianisation of the Army began with the charging of 31 Indian officers. Among this first cluster of officers to be dispatched was Field Marshal Sam Hormusji Framji Jamshedji Manekshaw, who later turned into the Chief of Army Staff of the Indian Army and the main Indian Field Marshal.
