Indian military leadership must be “more than just matching the political vision” which has mandated the creation of theater orders to overcome the security threats in the future, the Chief of Staff of the General Bipin Defense Rawat said on Thursday, highlighting the need to fight Chinese and Pakistani threats, even when He stressed that the first attempted to “build domination” in the country and the Indian Ocean region.
Praying said “service parochialism” must provide way for “combined service prospects” to advance the theaters, calling for military transformation to “surpassing” Indian enemies “.
“It won’t be easy and the transition to the theater command will indeed become a challenging process. There is a need to create and spread the strategic benefit narrative obtained at the national and armed force level (with the theaterization),” CDS said on the night the top commander conference was handled by the prime Minister Narendra Modi on March 6.
Theaterization refers to placing specific units of soldiers, navies and air forces under the theater commander. The order was led by an officer from one of three services, depending on the role assigned to them.
The military puts the final touch on the theatrical plan for the use of the most profitable resources to fight war in the future, with the air defense command and the maritime theater command will be launched by May.
Praying said integrating operating concepts trying to create conditions to “go beyond, directing and surpassing” Indian enemies. He spoke on a virtual event – Transformation: Imperative for the Indian Armed Forces – held by the College of Defense Management based in Secunderabad.
“Such seminars are expected to produce ideas about evolving the joints that will handle Voids at the strategic and operational level that the single service command currently fails to overcome,” said Rawat. He said the military currently has 17 single service orders, no together with each other and with each of the three services that issued their operational and strategic roles in isolation – “lack of synergy in operation”.
Points raised by the CD are very relevant, said the former North Military Commander Lieutenant General DS Hoba (RETD).
“We cannot continue with 17 individual orders while paying the lips for integration and battle war together. These three services must look beyond the chimney and work with CDs to find the best models and order settings and optimal controls for integrated commands suitable for India,” Add Hooda.
Apart from the command of the air and maritime defense,
India is estimated to have three other integrated commands to secure the western, north and east – this will be launched in December 2022. In addition, logistics commands are in work that must be avoided duplication of efforts and resources.
Mandate CDS includes bringing work in operation, logistics, transportation, training, support and repair services and maintenance of three services.
“The theater command will optimize the utilization of resources and lead to savings that can be used for forced modernization,” said Rawat. The military is expected to make presentations to PM regarding the situation along the border and progress made to the creation of theater orders at the Joint Commander Conference held at Kevadia on March 5-6.
Rawat said the Indian armed forces facing a greater challenge than other military in the world and India really need to bring structural reforms to higher defense and operational organizations.
“Some important steps we need to take include defining the national security strategy, higher defense strategic guidance, and structural reforms on higher defense and operational organizations
