India looking to set up separate theatre command for J&K: CDS

Feb 17, 2020 16:10 IST

India is looking at setting up a separate theatre command for Jammu and Kashmir, Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat said on Monday without offering any more details. In an interaction with journalists, Gen Rawat also added that Indian Navy's Eastern and Western commands will be integrated into the Peninsula command which will be rolled out by the end of 2021. Also that the Indian Air Force will helm the air defence command and all-long range missiles, as well as air defence assets, will come under it. The new air defence command will be rolled out by the beginning of next year. India will also have a separate training and doctrinal command and logistics command, he said.
