Antony:Modernisation of India's armed forces

May 21,2011-New Delhi:
Defence Minister A K Antony has called for the modernization of the country's armed forces at a faster pace. Addressing the Unified Commander's Conference in New Delhi yesterday, he asked the military brass to change their mindset and ensure that the thrust for the process is top driven. Mr. Antony also asked the commanders to ensure a new path for modernisation of the armed forces. He said, just as the old brick and mortar economies have given way to the new economic architecture across the world, so too modernisation of India's armed forces must chart a new path. Mr. Antony also asked the Commander's to ensure proper and effective implementation of the plans to meet the desired goals. He said, the onus of translating the government's intentions into reality lies with the commanders as the best of schemes and mechanism can fail due to lack of proper and effective implementation.
