#ArmyDay 2020: Why does India celebrate Army Day on January 15?

The 72nd Army Day is being celebrated across the country today. It is celebrated every year to commemorate the day when General (later Field Marshal) K M Carriappa took over the command of Army from General Sir F R R Bucher, the last British Commander-in-Chief in 1949 and became the first Commander-in-Chief of Indian Army post Independence.
