The Army Commanders' conference is a high-level meeting of the top Indian Army officials that is held twice a year. It usually takes place in the month of April and October every year. The conference expedites deliberations on various new and emerging concepts that helps in taking significant policy decisions. The Indian Army spokesperson told the news agency PTI about the meeting that is supposed to be held in the next week.
"The apex level leadership of the Indian Army will brainstorm on current emerging security and administrative challenges and chart the future course for the Indian Army. To ensure due diligence, decisions are taken through a collegiate system comprising Army commanders and senior officers," the spokesperson said.
As the conference will start on October 14, it is likely, to begin with, an address by the Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat. This will be followed by an update from all the Army Commanders on various operational and administrative issues that they are facing. Adding to this, many defence industries are also set to showcase their equipment during the meeting. The equipment display will include weapons, artillery, and machinery inclusive of the new technological features ranging from the fields of artificial intelligence, drone systems, ammunition, and unmanned ground vehicles as well. Apart from this, a discussion on the ongoing contemporary issues will also be held in the meeting.
Amid the growing tensions and the recent drone attacks from Pakistan, the General Officer Commanding-in-Chief of the Northern Command, Lieutenant General Ranbir Singh addressed the press and spoke about the aforementioned issue.
He said, “We are doing everything in our power and taking every measure possible to ensure that there is peace and prosperity in the Jammu and Kashmir region and from the Pakistan side they are trying everything to disrupt the peace. Today too, inside Pakistan there are terrorist infrastructure and the running of terrorist camps from where they are continuously trying to send infiltrators. They try to provide them with weapons and further they also try to provide them with whatever they need including weaponised drones. It is just another measure they applied, but I would like to assure you that no matter what Pakistan does we will be there to stop them.”
