Overview of the Project SHAURYA SANKALAN

Indian Army has taken an initiative to Digital Archiving of Military History with an aim to preserve its glorious past for posterity. It will ensure accessible to researchers, academicians and scholar warriors in a Web Page interactive format.

Taking inspiration from ‘Digita India Vision’, the Indian Army conceived Project ‘SHAURYA SANKALAN’ to preserve the rich and glorious history of the Indian Army. 

Documents from declassified operations of 1947-48, 1965, 1961 operation of Goa liberation & 1971 operation are undergoing digitization under aegis of ARTRAC since February 2022. 10 Lakh pages and approximately 600 hours of audio/ video clips were received from all units and formations of the Indian Army, including those located in remote operational areas from Northern and Eastern Commands. 

Detailed Roadmap of the project SHAURYA SANKALAN

The process of digitization includes careful scanning by state of art overhead scanners, which gives 300 dpi resolution for pages and 600 dpi for photos. During this process, the metadata and keywords of each page were captured by optical character recognition (OCR) for easy retrieval through ‘Data Management Software’.

 This digital repository provides a one stop place for all documents of the Indian Army having readily available to scholars, historians and academia for their research and study. Approximately 5000 pages which were received in very old and brittle condition, were restored with help of National Archives and INTACH.
