Mohanty has done his schooling from the prestigious Rashtriya Indian Military Academy (RIMC) Dehradun. His father PM Mohanty is a central government employee. Incidentally Mohanty also received the Kumaon regiment bronze medal for standing third in the regular course.

In an interview to TOI, Pratyush said that after watching the movie ‘Lakshya’, he was so motivated by it that “I wanted to do the same thing that the Army men depicted in the movie were doing.” Before joining Indian Army Pratyush was selected as Probationary Officer (PO) in Syndicate bank.

‘Sword of Honour’ awarded to those cadets who are higher PT tests, Swimming tests, Field training, Service subjects, Obstacle training (ROT), Drill tests, Participating in games and sports, Cross country enclosures etc.
It’s very significant for any soldier of the army.
