All Equipment Procurements Are Being Planned In A ‘balanced Manner’ For All Arms: Army Chief


Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat in a clear message to the force has assured that all equipment procurements are being planned in a “balanced manner” for all arms, so that modernisation needs of one arm does not take priority over others. He adds that therefore all future procurements have been classified as ‘critical’, ‘essential’ and ‘important’.

In a recent internal communication to the army, General Rawat spoke of several aspects of the force, including on capability procurements. He also spoke on the need to rightsize the army by having less liability under the salary head of the revenue budget and instead have more budget for modernisation. Currently, revenue accounts for 82 per cent of the army’s budget, while the capital component is only 18 per cent, officials explained. Read More
