The meet­ing between the Army chief and cab­i­net com­mit­tee also stressed on the need to enhance the Army’s air lift capa­bil­i­ties in the north-east­ern sec­tor bor­der­ing Chi­na. The Army has request­ed fur­ther more to increase the stocks of ammu­ni­tion of tanks and artillery guns, raise addi­tion­al Unmanned Aer­i­al Vehi­cle (UAV) squadrons and improve the recon­nais­sance and sur­veil­lance capa­bil­i­ties of the armed forces.

This is the third such meet­ing that has tak­en place to review the mod­erni­sa­tion process of the army held by Mr. A. K. Antony after the for­mer Army Chief Gen V. K. Singh high­light­ed the crit­i­cal short­ages faced by the force in a let­ter to the Prime Min­is­ter.

The Min­istry of Defence and the Army have seri­ous­ly got down to the table to dis­cuss the Chi­na threat which is very much real and how best to counter it with their own strat­e­gy. They are not leav­ing any stone unturned and doing every bit at a time when the Armed forces have no bud­getary con­straints. New Del­hi has assured the Armed forces bil­lions of dol­lars more if need be to help accel­er­ate the mod­erni­sa­tion process.

Oth­er than Mr. Antony and Gen Singh, Defence Sec­re­tary Shashikant Shar­ma, Sec­re­tary (Defence Pro­duc­tion) Shekhar Aggraw­al and Direc­tor Gen­er­al Acqui­si­tion Vivek Rae attend­ed the review meet­ing.
