WHAT IS THE CHIEF OF DEFENCE STAFF?

The Chief of Defence Staff is a single-point adivsor to the government on all matters related to the military. The officer appointed as the Chief of Defence Staff heads all the three arms of the military — the army, navy and air force.

The three forces will continue to have their own chiefs. However, the three-star officers heading these three services will reported to the Chief of Defence Staff, who will be a four-star officer.

The recommendation that India have a Chief of Defence Staff was first made after the 1999 Kargil War by a high-level committee that was appointed to review the security system in the aftermath of the conflict.

However, no action was taken on the recommendation. Instead, the military had the Chiefs of Staff Committee that comprised of all the three service chiefs.

The senior-most of the three chiefs functions as the chairman of the Chiefs of Staff Committee. However, the Chairman of Chiefs of Staff Committee is effectively the first among equals and does not weild real power like a Chief of Defence Staff would.
