Army Chief General Bipin Rawat on Thursday strongly pitched for fast-tracking procurement of defence systems to enhance India's military capability and said that armed forces must remain ready for warfare along the borders. General Rawat also said that adequate focus must be on ensuring that "trial procedure" for procurement of military equipment does not linger on for too long, in an indication of his unhappiness over the delay in modernisation of armed forces.

Arun Jaitley can make his innings -- notwithstanding its likely length -- a watershed tenure, or just add to the image of the MoD drifting rudderless, says Brigadier S K Chatterji (retd). Since the time Narendra Modi won a sweeping victory to be anointed prime minister of the world's most populous democracy, the defence ministry -- the MoD -- has displayed far greater professionalism.

'The defence minister needs to focus on human resources-related issues at the same pace in 2017 as he did on acquisitions in 2016,' says Brigadier S K Chatterji (retd). As we step into 2017 new challenges and old rivalries in the geopolitical arena raise their heads to pose a threat to our strides to the goalposts of being a major power in Asia. Our geographical strengths, vast land mass and the fact of our island territories extending deep into the waters of the Indian Ocean through which ...Rediff.com, 2 months ago

The military has started 2017 with a fresh slate on several fronts. The army and the air force both have new chiefs, an opportunity for fresh ideas and approaches.
