     During his visit, Lt Gen Chait also interacted with District Collector and Superintendent of Police, Narayanpur. He apprised them that Narayanpur ranges are an asset for training and owing to the excellent terrain and climatic conditions the Army is likely to use the ranges as per the training calendar for the year.
