The joint exercise is hosted alternately between both countries. The last edition of Yudh Abhyas was held at Mahajan Field Firing Ranges at Bikaner in Rajasthan in February 2021. 

According to Indian Army spokesperson Col Sudhir Chamoli, the Yudh Abhyas exercise is another step in the evolving military cooperation between the two countries. The exercise seeks to develop understanding, cooperation and interoperability between two Armies.

The Yudh Abhyas exercise will focus on combined arms manoeuvres in cold climatic conditions and will primarily facilitate sharing of tactical level drills and best practices from each other.
