The First Batch Recruits passed out their basic training on 9th December 1999 at Local Ground Kohima from 15/01/00. The unit conducted integrated training in CIJW, WT and Commando at Chakhabama itself. On completion of this training all COYS of this unit were attached to various army and Assam Rifles units all over Nagaland for a period of 3 months and then they were further attached to various CRPF units for one month. This completed the training of the newly raised Battalion and satisfied all norms laid down by MHA for training for IR Battalions.
The Battalion started shifting from Chakhabama to Chumukedima by September 2000 and the Battalion Headquarter started functioning in Chumukedima from 1st October 2000.
In the mean time the directly recruited Havildars of the Unit who were being trained at PTS completed their training and rejoined the unit and subsequently the ABSI also passed out and joined their unit. Simultaneously more officers were posted to the Unit and thus the raising of the unit was completed.
