INTEGRATED TRISERVICE THEATRE COMMANDS

INTEGRATED TRISERVICE THEATRE COMMANDS

Context:

Recently, a high-level committee has been made for consultations on the creation of integrated tri-service theatre commands.

About:

  • The committee will analyze all issues and discover a route forward before a formal note on their creation is sent to the Cabinet Committee on Security.

Integrated Theatre Command:

  • An integrated theatre command foresees a unified command of the 3 Services, under a single commander, for geographical theatres that are of strategic and security concern.
  • The commander of such a force will be able to bear all resources at his disposal, from the Indian Air Force, the Army, and the Navy.
  • The integrated theatre commander won't be responsible for individual Services.
  • Integration and jointness of the 3 forces will avoid duplication of resources. The resources accessible under each service will be accessible to other services too.
  • The Shekatkar committee in 2015 had suggested the creation of 3 integrated theatre commands, western for the Pakistan border, northern for the China border, and southern for the maritime role.
