A lean, mean Indian Army on the cards

A lean, mean Indian Army on the cards

New Delhi, Sep 12 (UNI) A lean, mean and future-effective Indian Army is all set to take shape in the near future as its top commanders get busy in hammering a consensus on usher in radical changes in the world's second largest army.

Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat on Tuesday met with top echelons of the Army and reviewed the status of organizational restructuring study. However, the army officials have also agreed on for deeper deliberations and again discuss in Army Commanders’ Conference (ACC) to be held next month before implementing them in November this year.

Sources said that it is also likely that the Army Chief would review the status of study before presentation to the Army Commanders' Conference.

“In principle overall consensus on restructuring of Indian Army has been developed. Trimming down of the Army (HQ) has been majorly agreed that it should be made leaner, meaner and future effective,” the Army sources said.

As part of the restructuring exercise, Directorate General of Military Training (DGMT) will be shifted from the Army HQ to Shimla-based Army Training Command (ARTRAC) and Directorate General of Rashtriye Rifles to Udhampur-based Northern Command in an effort to better coordination with the operational site, sources indicated.

The reason of shifting DGMT to ARTRAC is that both of them perform identical roles. The DGMT executes training plans for operations, war games, joint and training while the ARTRAC controls the training establishments and writes training pamphlets.

The ambit of the study includes: Reorganization of the Indian Army, Review of Army headquarters, Cadre review for officers (being done after the AV Singh Committee report, 2001) and Review of terms of engagement.

Each study group is headed by senior Lt-Generals and has a team of 25 members, all senior Army officers.
