The Field Marshal is a five–star honorary and the highest attainable rank in the Royal Vishwamitran Army, the land force of the Vishwamitran Armed Forces. The Field marshal is ranked immediately above the General of the Army. It is a largely ceremonial rank, having been awarded only once. The marshal's insignia consists of the federal crown over a chakra and crossed baton and sabre in a lotus blossom wreath.

Dhrubajyoti Roy is the first and till date the only Field marshal of the State of Vishwamitra, and was conferred the rank on 13 May 2018.

History

The largely ceremonial and honorary rank of the Marshal was created on 13 May 2018 by outgoing President Anoushkaa Patranabish to confer that upon the Prime Minister Dhrubajyoti Roy for his services to the nation and was eventually bestowed the next day as Marshal of the Republic. The rank was known as that of the Marshal of the Armed Forces until February 2021. It was renamed as that of field marshal on 21 February 2021.

Insignia

The Marshal's insignia consists of the federal crown over a chakra and a crossed baton and sabre in a lotus blossom wreath. The star insignia, which comprises five golden stars over a red strip, is used on car pennants, rank flags and as gorget patches.
