Srinagar: Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) General Bipin Rawat said on Monday said that India is looking at setting up a separate theatre command for Jammu and Kashmir.
The air defense command is to be rolled out by the beginning of next year and the Peninsula command by the end of 2021, Gen Rawat told a select group of journalists.
The Indian Air Force will helm the air defense command and all-long range missiles, as well as air defense assets, will come under it, he said. “India is looking at setting up a separate theatre command for Jammu and Kashmir,” Gen Rawat was quoted as saying by PTI.
Indian Navy’s Eastern and Western commands will be integrated into the Peninsula command, he said. India will also have a separate training and doctrinal command and logistics command, he said.
