Indo-Nepal Joint Military Training was held at Pithoragarh from March 7 to 20, 2017. Ekta Shakti Battalion of the Punjab Regiment of Indian Army and Durga Bahsh Battalion of Nepalese Army participated in the joint exercise named Surya Kiran-XI, which was the 11th iteration aimed at training troops in counter-insurgency operations and enhancing defence cooperation and military relations between the two countries. It provided an ideal platform for the personnel of the two armies to share their experiences.

The training culminated with 48 hours outdoor exercise in which troops of both contingents carried out a cordon and search operation in a mock village.
