New Delhi. 26 October 2020. The Indian Infantry soldier is not only the most battle hardened but also the most combat ready in the world. The infantry regiments engage and destroy the enemy in close combat during the assault or hold its position during the defence. They are equipped, organized and trained to use weapons of close combat to support its assault weapons with heavier fires and to provide limited administrative support for its units which are a part of the regiments.

The infantry regiment is the largest element of the infantry division. It is a military organization, not a field formation. Not all the battalions of an infantry regiment fight together as one formation, but are dispersed over various formations such as brigades, divisions and corps. Here is a list of the regiments of the Indian Army’s Infantry.
