The Center has appointed Army Chief General Bipin Rawat as the country’s first Chief of Defense Staff. General Rawat is retiring from the post of Army Chief on December 31.

The first Chief of Defense Staff of the country will be announced shortly. It is reported that the file has already been cleared by the Appointments Committee (ACC). Only official notification on this remains. An official announcement may be made today or tomorrow.
The central government has decided to increase the maximum age limit for those who have already held the post of Chief of Staff (CDS) for 65 years. Currently, the Army, Navy, and Air Force commanders hold positions for a maximum of three years or until they are 62 years old (whichever is earlier).

If he is appointed as CDS, he will continue in office for another three years. An announcement on the matter is expected to be made on Tuesday.

After finalizing the responsibilities and role of the Chief Defense Staff (CDS), the Cabinet Committee on Security gave its approval. “The other three divisional officers receive equal pay of the CDS. CDS will serve as the Secretary of Military Affairs, ”Minister Prakash Javadekar said. The Indian Armed Forces come under the Department of Military Affairs.
