About the Nepalese Army–

Nepalese Army is the military land warfare force of Nepal. Service is voluntary and the minimum age of recruitment is 18 years. The army was formerly known as The Royal Nepalese Army (RNA) during the monarchy period in Nepal.
It was renamed the Nepalese Army on 28 May 2008 after the abolition of the 238-year-old Shah dynasty rule.
Nepal unification campaign was a turning point in the history of the Nepalese army. Since unification was not possible without a strong army, the management of the armed forces had to be exceptional.
Apart from the standard Malla era temples in Kathmandu, army being organized in Gorkhas, technicians & experts had to be brought in from abroad to manufacture war materials.
After the Gorkhali troops captured Nuwakot, the hilly northern part of Kathmandu (Kantipur) in the year 1744, the Gorkhali armed forces came to be known as the Royal Nepalese Army.
Their gallantry, sincerity and simplicity impressed even their enemy so much that the British East-India Company started recruiting Nepalese into their forces.
Since the British had fought against then RNA, which was till that time, still colloquially known as “Army of Gorkha” or “Gorkhali” army, the British called their new soldiers “Gurkhas”.
Sikh & Gurkha army ‘s war took place in 1809 which is known as Gurkha-Sikh War.
The Indian army, after gaining their independence from the British, started calling them “Gorkha”.
In 1946, the Royal Nepalese Army troops were led by Commanding General Sir Baber Shamsher Jang Bahadur Rana at the Victory Parade in London.
The Gurkha Rifles existing in India & Britain are part of foreign military organizations where Nepalis are recruited. The NA are rightfully the true heir of the title of “The original Army of the Gorkha”.
Prior to 2006 the Nepalese Army was known as the Royal Nepalese Army & was under the control of the King of Nepal.
Yet following the Loktantra Andolan (People’s Movement for Democracy) on May 18, 2006 a Bill was passed by the Nepalese parliament curtailing royal power, this included renaming the army.
