Kodam Jaya is a military command area (effectively a military district) of the Military of Indonesia. It oversees Jakarta, the capital city, as well as three regions outside of Jakarta: Bekasi and Depok, which are administratively in West Java province; and Tangerang, which is in Banten province.


On 1 September 1945, the People's Security Organisation (Badan Keamanan Rakyat/BKR) was founded in Jakarta, and was led by Lt. Col. Mufraeni Mukmin. On 29 September 1945, allied forces (with Netherlands Indies Civil Administration personnel attached) under the command of Lt. Gen. Sir Philip Christison landed from the HMS Cumberland (57) in Tanjung Priok Harbor to disarm Japanese troops and to liberate prisoners of war. BKR and Indonesian youth in API, Kris Hisbulah, and other paramilitary organisations confronted the allied forces. To increase armed resistance against the allied forces, the government of the Republic of Indonesia founded the People's Security Forces (Tentara Keamanan Rakyat/TKR) on 5 October 1945. One regiment of TKR in Jakarta was organised under the command of Lt.Col. Mufraini Mukmin.

On 24 September 1949, the Dutch government recognised Indonesia's Independence, one of the first actions of which was the signing of documents for the transfer of power in Jakarta Raya area from Comando Batavia En Ommelanden of the Dutch to Basis Comando Jakarta Raya of Indonesia, under supervision of Komisi Tiga Negara (KTN). This established 24 September as the anniversary day of Kodam Jaya. In December 1949, some units such as "Kala Hitam" Battalion and "Siluman" Battalion were dispatched to reinforce Basis Comando Jakarta Raya, following which Lt.Col. R. Taswin Natadiningrat was appointed as commander of Basis Comando Jakarta Raya.

In January 1950, Basis Comando Jakarta Raya change its name to Komando Militer Pangkalan Jakarta Raya (KMP Jakarta Raya). Then, in accordance with instruction from Army HQ on 10 May 1950, abaut Komando Militer Kota (KMK) was changed to Komando Militer Kota Besar Djakarta Raya ( KMKB-DR). As the Republic of Indonesia continued to developm, the Army Chief of Staff released two letters of command numbered SP 1671/10/1959 and SP 1672/10/1959 (both dated 24 December 1959), the first calling for the transfer of responsibility of KMKB-DR and appointment of formatur of Kodam V/Jayakarta, and the second regarding the changing of KMKB-DR to Komando Daerah Militer V/Jayakarta, abbreviated Kodam V/Jaya. After that, on 19 January 1960, at 9:00 am in Lapangan Banteng, the Army Chief of Staff appointed Col.(inf) Umar Wirahadikusumah as the first Commander of Kodam V/Jaya.
