New Delhi: Chief of Defence Staff General Anil Chauhan has met top military commanders from the three services deployed in the peninsular and island territories of India.

Sources told Defence Watch that the CDS met the senior Military Commanders from the three services including the Andaman and Nicobar Command, Southern Air and Naval Commands, the Navy’s Western and Eastern Commands to discuss the future structures and responsibilities of the Maritime Theatre Command being created to tackle the threats from that domain.

The meeting came a few weeks after CDS General Chauhan held a similar meeting with military commanders responsible for securing the borders with China.

CDS General Chauhan is in the advanced stages of strengthening integration and jointness among the defence forces for setting up three new Theatre Commands which will look after threats from the Northern front, the Western front and the Maritime domain.

Push for jointness of the three armed forces has gathered pace after the passage of the Inter-Services Organisation (Command, Control and Discipline) Bill, 2023 by parliament early this month. The Bill seeks to empower the commander-in-chief and commanding officers of Inter-Services Organisations (ISOs) with all disciplinary and administrative powers in respect of the personnel serving in or attached to such organisations.
