Biggest achievement so far

Success rate of these commandos so far has been 100% & they have succeeded in various difficult missions but the biggest achievement of these commandos so far has been the elimination of terrorist of 26/11 Mumbai attacks which shook the whole county & many people lost their lives in that attack but many more would have lost their lives if these commandos hadn't done their duty as clinically & efficiently as they did.

Number of Marcos currently functioning in India

At present there are 2000 Marcos on duty in India which is a good enough number & that number of commados is certainly needed to tackle increasing menace of terrorism.
