Army intends to cut 1.5 lakh troops to save money for modernisation

https://m.timesofindia.com/india/top...w/65772363.cms

The army needs to be a man intensive force in order to combat so many insurgencies raging across the country. Why can't the defence budget be increased by the so called 'nationalistic' government ?

That is a TOIlet news just mentioning high level discussion is on. I heard similar news in 90s too. On making Army leaner and meaner by doing away with orderlies. Not sure if that has been done.

The plan is to totally remove rank of Brigadier as well, there was time when my father become Wing Commander after 20 years of service now there are just so many people of this rank because of faster promotion.
