The world is shrinking with the advance of technologies and Globaliztion. In this Global village no country can stand aloof, regular interaction and mutual cooperation are most required.In this scenarios peace and development remain the central agenda for India.

The growing menace of terrorism continues to be an area of great concern, where we are facing newer challenges. Our armed forces are geared up to the challenges to meet this asymmetric threat.

ORGANISATIONAL SET-UP

After independence Ministry of Defence was created under the charge of a Cabinet Minister, and, each Service was placed under its own Commander-in-Chief. In 1955, the Commanders-in-Chief were renamed as the Chief of the Army Staff, the Chief of the Naval Staff and the Chief of the Air Staff. In November 1962, a Department of Defence Production was set up to deal with research, development and production of defence equipment. In November 1965, the Department of Defence Supplies was created for planning and execution of schemes for import substitution of defence requirements. These two Departments were later merged to form the Department of Defence Production and Supplies. In 2004, the name of Department of Defence Production and Supplies was changed to Department of Defence Production. In 1980, the Department of Defence Research and Development was created. In 2004, the Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare was created.

Defence Expenditure

The Break up of Defence Expenditure is shown above. It can be seen how the defence spending. It can be seen how the defence expenditure is escalating. The major chunk goes to Army. With more plans to buy new arms and amutations, the spending is going to increase further and it is estimated that around 2013 India's Defence expenditure will cross that of Britain's Defence expenditure. India's Defence spending is consistently increrasing by 15%, where as that of Britain is increasing around by 1.1%.

A country which is the house of most number of malnutrioned people in world require this much spending on Defence? Yaa definetly required. Our neighbouring environment requires us to have a strong defence....

 

 

Defence Expenditure
India's security environment continued to be influenced by developments in our immediate neighbourhood where rising instability remains a matter of deep concern. Global attention is shifting to the sub-continent for a variety of reasons, ranging from fast track economic growth, growing population and markets, the untapped socio-economic potential of the region and the growing energy consumption levels. Alongside, some countries in the region have come to be the fountainhead of terrorism, thus inviting close attention of the world. The interests and presence of major powers in this region, coupled with the relative instability in our immediate neighbourhood are a matter of concern to India. India's rapidly growing economy, relative size and strategic location in the region thus brings the country into prominence in the world's geopolitics. India, nevertheless, remains committed to peace and stability in the region, which are fundamental for the continued economic development and prosperity of its people.

 

Many Milestones in The Never Ending Journey.
