Tri-Service Common Defense Station In Mumbai

Tri-Service Common Defense Station In Mumbai:

The Armed Forces are embarking on a significant initiative to transform Mumbai into India’s inaugural tri-service common defence station, marking a crucial step towards achieving jointness among the Army, Navy, and Air Force.

  • This strategic move aims to consolidate all facilities and resources of the three services, encompassing logistics, infrastructure, repair and maintenance, and supplies, under a unified leadership framework.
  • Currently, Mumbai houses separate wings of the three services, operating independently.
  • The Navy, with its substantial presence in Mumbai, will assume the lead role in this new integrated setup.
  • Sulur, located near Coimbatore, and Guwahati are expected to be selected as the sites for the second and third common defence stations.
  • Currently, there are no common defence stations in India.
  • The Andaman and Nicobar command is a full-fledged command raised as a tri-service command in 2001.
