LACK of timely decision making in the last decade resulted in gaps in the Indian Air Force and the Government is committed to fill them, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said on Tuesday. In an address at the bi-annual conference of IAF commanders, the Defence Minister also said that the powers given to the service chiefs should be“fully utilised” in achieving required capabilities of the forces.
