|Union Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar acknowledged that there is need for chief of defence staff for a better integration between the two forces and also promised to work out a mechanism soon. Speaking at the India Today Conclave, Parrikar said, "At present, there is no integration mechanism that exists between three forces and there is lot of infighting among them."|
Both Parrikar and former Army chief general Bikram Singh, who were present at the dias, agreed that there are some critical areas on preparedness of armed forces which needs attention.
I will recommend a mechanism for the creation of the post of chief of defence staff. Force integration and overlap will also save us money: Manohar Parrikar
