Defence Minister To Have More Say In Key Military Appointments

In a break from the past, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar is taking greater interest in appointments of Principal Staff Officers (PSO) to Chiefs, Vice Chiefs and Army Commanders and their equivalent in the Navy and Air Force. Senior-most officers of the three forces are appointed as PSO and they advise the chief on critical issues. Earlier, the Ministry of Defence went by the recommendations of the Chiefs and the service headquarters. Now, sources tell NDTV, Mr Parrikar has told the services that while he would take into account the recommendations of chiefs for the appointments, the final call would be of the ministry. And, some recommendations for appointments as PSO have been sent back with queries. It is understood that while the recommendation of the Chief of Army Staff in the appointment of the vice-chief has been accepted by Mr Parrikar, he has hasn’t accepted the recommendation of the Army Headquarters in certain cases. Senior Ministry of Defence officials said Mr Parrikar has asked the forces to inform the ministry about all officers who are ligible for promotions instead of just the first three or four officers, as was the custom earlier. The change in the process comes after several retired officers have suggested to the Defence Minister that recommendations of the service headquarters should not be final. Besides, there have been allegations that some appointments were influenced by regimental preferences. Former Defence Ministers AK Antony and Pranab Mukerjee also questioned appointments but that was never a policy, more an intervention. In a related development, the Ministry of Defence has appointed Lieutenant General Bipin Rawat, currently commanding the Pune based Southwestern Command as the new Vice-Chief of the Indian Army. The current Vice-Chief MMS Rai retires this month. The delay in naming the new Vice-Chief was attributed to the consultations between the defence ministry and Army Headquarters. Sources said the defence ministry has also cleared the appointment of Lieutenant General Surinder Singh as the Western Army Commander. He is from the Mechanized infantry and now heads the Sukhna-based 33 Corps. The outgoing Western Army Commander Lieutenant General KJ Singh retired on July 31. Lieutenant General SK Patyal has been appointed as the Director General of Military Intelligence. The previous DGMI Lieutenant Genral KG Krishna retired on July 31. General SK Patyal was commanding the Leh-based 14 Corps Command.........Read more

Tweak in rules now permits export of small arms from India with due permission

Top small arms manufacturers from across the globe are looking to set up shop in India with a critical tweak in rules by the government that has enabled the private sector to set up manufacturing units and even cater to export orders after due permissions. The revised Arms Rules 2016, which have been notified by the government last month, have brought clarity to the sector, giving clear rules on how private players can set up shop, bring in foreign investment and sell small arms. Till now, only state owned public sector units were manufacturing arms for the Indian forces. With a massive requirement stretching across the three armed forces, paramilitary forces and state police, a large quantity of small arms like rifles, carbines and side arms were being imported annually. "These revised rules will disperse the clouds of ambiguity that had engulfed the Small Arms and ammunition manufacturing sector thereby enabling the private sector to not only help meet domestic demand but enter the regional export market in a significant manner," says Ankur Gupta, Vice President at EY India. In a recent tweak in FDI rules, the government for the first time brought in small arms under the defence ambit. This has opened the way for an automatic route for FDI investments up to 49 per cent in the sector. Industry insiders say that several top manufacturers, like Colt, Heckler and Kotch and IWI are in advanced talks with Indian players to set up facilities after the recent tweak. As per the notified rules, Indian companies will be granted a seven year license after due vetting and will be allowed to set up units in special economic zones. No facility will be allowed to come up near border areas. The arms manufactured will also be "allowed for export subject to the approval of the Ministry of Home Affairs in consultation with the Ministry of External Affairs, Ministry of Defence and Ministry of Commerce, on a case to case basis". While industry experts have welcomed the move, they have cautioned that some processes will need to be smoothened out to encourage manufacturing. "On the flip side, the licensing process is under the MHA and approvals are required even for importing machinery. This will take time to evolve and companies could face delays in the short term," Gupta said.........Read more
