Theatre commands, including for J-K, to start rolling out by 2022: Gen Rawat

India could have up to five theatres and the new structures would begin “rolling out” in two years, chief of defence staff General Bipin Rawat said on Monday as he disclosed the broad contours of the country’s theaterisation plans to optimally utilise the resources of the armed forces.

Gen Rawat also said that India is also looking at creating a distinct theatre command for Jammu and Kashmir and integrating the western and eastern naval commands to create a Peninsular Command.
