Armed forces plan syn­ergy in train­ing

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES NATION -

New Delhi: In a bid to in­ject some much-needed syn­ergy among the Army, the Navy and the IAF, the armed forces have for­mu­lated a joint train­ing doc­trine af­ter fi­nal­is­ing a new joint war doc­trine ear­lier in the year.

The 51-page ‘Joint Train­ing Doc­trine, In­dian Armed Forces — 2017’ was is­sued af­ter be­ing cleared by the chiefs of staff com­mit­tee, com­pris­ing Ad­mi­ral Su­nil Lanba, Air Chief Mar­shal B S Dhanoa and Ge­neal Bipin Rawat, on Tues­day.

“The three Ser­vices fight the same war at the end of the day. So, there is the need to train to­gether for it. This is the first time that such a key­stone doc­u­ment has been pro­mul­gated. It brings out at the macro-level the ap­proach to joint train­ing, fun­da­men­tals, ob­jec­tives, joint struc­tures, planning and other as­pects,” said an of­fi­cer.

The train­ing doc­trine flows from the ‘Joint Doc­trine, In­dian Armed Forces — 2017”, is­sued in April, which had stressed the need for the Army, Navy and IAF to plan and work to­gether to tackle the en­tire spec­trum of con­flict, from con­ven­tional wars to ir­reg­u­lar and hy­brid war­fare.
