The President of India has five aides-de-camp (three from the army and one each from the navy and the air force). There is also one honorary aide-de-camp from the Territorial Army. The president may at his pleasure appoint any distinguished officer from the armed forces including the service chiefs as honorary aide-de-camp.

In India, officers of the rank of major general and equivalent and above in the sister services who are in command of divisions or of peacetime commands have aides-de-camp who usually belong to their general’s parent regiment/battalion.
