The Cabinet Committee on Security Affairs has approved the creation of the post of Chief of Defense Staff on Tuesday.
The government has decided to create the post of Chief of Defense Staff and the Military Affairs Department within the Ministry of Defense. Why the need for CDS arose The lack of coordination between the Air Force and the Indian Army was evident during the Kargil War. The then Air Chief and Army Chief General VP Malik differed on the use of the Air Force during the Kargil War. Indian strategic strategists also realized this shortcoming and recommended the government to re-create CDS. This position is essential for government leadership as a role of military advisor. However political parties and military forces have opposed it.
