The Officers Training Academy,Chennai is one of three pre commission training academies in India which trains future generations of officers for the Indian army. It is unique in that it trains officers for a short service commission and is one of only a handful of academics in the world which trains both gentlemen and lady cadets.Raised as Officers Training school (OTS) in 1963 to train emergency commission officers, the OTA was redesigned as the OTA in 1992. The academy has the capacity to train 750 officer cadets at a time.
The academy is spread over 670 acres and is bifurcated by the river Adyar which runs roughly from South to North through the academy.
