The whole community stands behind every child to accomplish individual dreams and goals regardless if th ey lead to defence or not. One common passion across the community is ‘creating a robust nation’ that is instilled in every individual who connects with the community. We have often received requests and queries from defen ce personnel to include their sons and daughters in the offering. Earlier, udChalo only offered ‘defence fares’ basi s the airline’s agreement and was forced to stick to the stipulated definition prescribed by the government. udCh alo, today offers a vast bouquet of services and now extends them to the complete family. Being a Fauji kid myse lf, I can very well connect with the sentiments and bonhomie”.
