Vetting process for next Army Chief begins


The vetting process for selection of the next Army Chief has begun, with a list of five top officers being considered for the post after the retirement of incumbent General Bipin Rawat at the end of the year. The government faces a tough choice for what has now become a selection process where the old convention of seniority no longer applies.

At the top of the list are the Northern and Eastern Army commanders — both of whom have rich operational and command experience and a good track  record when it comes to anti-insurgency operations. Lt Gen Manoj Mukund Naravane, who is currently the Eastern army Commander, would be the seniormost officer of the Indian Army when General Rawat retires in December end.

The Sikh Light Infantry officer has commanded a Rashtriya Rifles battalion in Kashmir, has served in the Assam Rifles and has been posted as the defence attache to Myanmar.   Read More
