Army Chief General Bipin Rawat has been named as India’s first Chief of Defence Staff. He has been named as the CDS just a day before he was to retire from service after completing a full three-year term as the Chief of Army Staff. The recommendation for creating of CDS was mooted 20 years back.

Chief of Defence Staff

It was on August 15, 2019, that Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the post of Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) from the ramparts of the historic Red Fort. Making the far-reaching announcement for India’s defense forces, the prime minister had said: “Our forces are India’s pride. To further sharpen coordination between the forces, I want to announce a major decision from the Red Fort: India will have a Chief of Defence Staff (CDS).

This is going to make the forces even more effective. India should not have a fragmented approach. Our entire military power will have to work in unison and move forward.  All three (Services) should move simultaneously at the same pace. There should be good coordination and it should be relevant to the hope and aspirations of our people. It should be in line with the changing war and security environment with the world.   After the formation of this post (CDS), all three forces will get effective leadership at the top level.”
