Meet Captain Tania Shergil, the 1st woman Republic Day parade adjutant


Fourth generation woman army officer Captain Tania Shergill broke the glass ceiling by becoming the first female to lead an all men contingent at the Army Day Parade held in New Delhi in January, winning the hearts of innumerable people across the country.

Tania’s father was in 101 Medium Regiment (Artillery) while her grandfather was in the 14th Armed Regiment (Scinde Horse). Interestingly, her great grandfather was in the Sikh Regiment.

Tania, who has done B.Tech in electronics and communications, was commissioned in March 2017 from OTA Chennai.

Last Year, Captain Bhavna Kasturi from ASC had become the first woman officer to lead an all-men contingent on Republic Day. It was definitely a moment of proud for women across India.
