We at udChalo are dedicated to serve our Soldiers, the Heroes whose courage, gallantry, and commitment to protect our Nation's honour is incomparable.
udChalo was formed in 2012 to provide an unmatched travel experience to our soldiers, who are always on the move. Complicated sites and high fares made flying for our real heroes nearly impossible. The idea of 'Making Life Simpler for Our Soldiers' took place on September 14, 2012, and since then we have been continuously working towards the same idea with pride and gratitude.
We have not only made travel more convenient for our Soldiers, but we have also provided numerous other viable services such as assistance on filling ITR, easy bill payments, offers on branded electronic gadgets and trusted housing.
