submitting its report We have all the reports We just dont have the reforms India is facing the strategic environment of the 21st century with its armed forces structured largely as they were during World War II The reduced likelihood of a big conventional war thanks to nuclear deterrence means our complacency in not restructuring the armed forces is unlikely to be punished in the battlefields that easily What is more likely is the outdated structure will eat our armed forces inside outthrough corruptioncronyismindiscipline and inefficiency Ossified structures seldom reward initiativerisk taking and integrity Unfortunatelythese have begun affecting the Indian armed forces Quotas in all but name have emerged for everything from gallantry awards to promotions While in principlethe government can appoint the best man for the jobin practice it is seniority that determines who becomes the army chief Lower down the hierarchyinformal rules determine the speed at which officers in various combat arms are promoted Not even the comptroller and auditor general can fathom the notional loss to the nation in terms of wasted talent and human capital What is fathomable is that despite

joint commands The roles of military advisersservice chiefs and theatre commanders must be separated This allows us to balance seniorityexperience and talent by placing the right person in the right job We also need to rebalance the civil-military relationship The chairman of the joint chiefs of staffas the principal military adviser to the governmentmust report directly to the prime minister and carry an ex-officio cabinet rank This will ensure the chief executive has direct access to military advice without upsetting civilian supremacy over the armed forces Obviouslyrestructuring the armed forces is not a miracle cure to the problems that plague our defence policy Howeverit is the first step The rest will follow In the coming monthseveryone involved will find it tempting to rejig the procurement process some moreorder a few inquiriesappoint another high-level commission and set aside more money for flashy new equipment That would be exactly the kind of ad-hoc functioning the
