As a tradition between the two national defence forces, Nepal President Bidhya Devi Bhandari will confer the honorary General of Nepal Army to Rawat at a special programme at her official residence "Sheetal Niwas" on Wednesday, the Kathmandu Post reported.
General Rawat will be accompanied by his spouse, Madhulika Rawat, and a four-member delegation, said a press release of the High Commission of India yesterday.
Earlier in the day, Gen Rawat laid a wreath at Tundikhel, Kathmandu at the Nepal Army Pavilion, and received a Guard of Honour by the Nepal Army at the Nepal Army Headquarters.
Ahead of the ceremony, Gen. Rawat paid a courtesy call on Khand and discussed the various aspects of military ties, according to a Nepal Defence Ministry statement.
According to the Indian embassy, the Indian Army gifted its Nepalese counterpart seven horses.
The delegation will also visit Nepalese Army Mountain Warfare School at Jomsom and the Pension Paying office at Pokhra where the Indian Army chief, who is a Gorkha Rifles officer, will address the Indian Army ex-servicemen of Nepalese origin.
The Chief of the Army Staff, General Bipin Rawat, will be conferred the honorary title of General of the Nepalese Army during his ongoing visit to the Himalayan country.
Rawat, who became the chief of the Indian Army on December 31 a year ago, is also scheduled to visit Pashupati Nath temple.
Rawat had also held a meeting with other senior officials of the Nepal Army.
