134 Infantry Battalion (Territorial Army) Ecological, ASSAM, Organises Mass Plantation Drive to Commemorate Platinum Jubilee Year (1949 – 2024)

The Territorial Army (TA), a distinguished military reserve force that provides critical operational and logistical support to the Indian Armed Forces and civilian authorities during natural calamities and national/regional emergencies, proudly marks its Platinum Jubilee Year from 1949 to 2024.

As part of these celebrations, the 134 Infantry Battalion (Territorial Army) Ecological, Assam, also known as the 134 Ecological Task Force (ETF), organized an Awareness Program and Mass Plantation Drive on the eve of International Yoga Day 2024. This event took place at the Missamari Military Station in the Sonitpur district under the aegis of the Station Headquarters of the Military Station.

Established in 2007 in the Sonitpur District of Assam, the 134 ETF was formed to combat rampant deforestation and restore the region’s fragile ecological balance. Since its inception, it has played a crucial role in environmental conservation in the Sonitpur and Biswanath districts of Assam.

To commemorate the Platinum Jubilee, the 134 ETF conducted a large-scale plantation drive, planting fruit-bearing and shade-giving trees within the Missamari Military Station. This initiative, undertaken under the aegis of the Station Headquarters, involved military personnel and their families who joined hands to enhance the green cover of their communities.

During the event, ETF personnel engaged with military personnel and their families, emphasizing the importance of protecting our ecosystems. They highlighted that the success of any ecological mission depends on the active and wholehearted involvement of every member of society.

This mass plantation drive is part of a series of events planned throughout the Platinum Jubilee Year to promote environmental awareness and sustainability. The 134 ETF remains committed to its mission of ecological restoration and community engagement, embodying the spirit of the Territorial Army’s dedication to national service and environmental stewardship.
