India to set up ‘Joint Theatre Command’ of Tri-Services

India will soon have a Joint Theater Command (JTC) of the three forces.

Recently, during the Kargil Vijay Diwas celebrations, a proposal to set up a joint theater command of the three armies in the country was considered.

It was also recommended by DB Shekatkar Committee, Kargil Review Committee and Naresh Chandra Committee.

Under the Joint Theater Command, the resources and aviation assets of the Army, Navy, and Air Force will be placed under a single theater commander. It aims to ensure the efficient availability of resources to meet the needs of today’s hi-tech warfare.

India currently has 19 military commands. Of these, 17 are service-based commands of all three services. The other two orders are as follows-

  • A Strategic Forces Command (SFC) to look after nuclear weapons and
  • There is a tri-services command in Andaman and Nicobar.

The objective of the theater command is to bring all the 17 different commands under four or five unified or theater commands.

Significance of Joint Theater Command-

  • The post of Chief of Defense Staff has been created.
  • Integrated Defense Staff has been created at the bureaucratic level.

Kargil Vijay Diwas

Kargil Vijay Diwas is commemorated every 26 July in India, to observe India’s victory over Pakistan in the Kargil War for ousting Pakistani Forces from their occupied positions on the mountain tops of Northern Kargil District in Ladakh in 1999.
