PM announces CDS post, fulfils defence's long-pending proposal

In a major move, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday announced the creation of the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) post, that has been a long-pending recommendation of various defence panels.

Addressing the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort on the occasion of 73rd Independence Day, Modi said: "I want to announce a major decision from the Red Fort: India will have a Chief of Defence Staff -- CDS.

This is going to make the forces even more effective.

The new CDS post will oversee all the three wings of the armed forces."
