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.

“She said that the Government is committed to fill the gaps which have arisen due to lack of timely decision making in the last decade,” the IAF said in a statement. The three-day-long IAF commanders conference is taking place amid an evolving regional security scenario and growing assertiveness by China in some parts of the Sino-India border.
