Indian Armed Forces claim lack of qualified military

39
The Indian Defense Ministry has announced a shortage of people in the army. According to the portal indiatimes.com, according to the head of the Indian Defense Ministry, Nirmala Sitharaman, the ground forces, the Air Force and the Indian Navy are deficient in almost 60 000 military personnel.


Indian Armed Forces claim lack of qualified military


In India, there is no compulsory military service, but military service is considered to be very honorable. Any recruitment of recruits takes place with a "full house" and a high competition for a vacant seat. However, the situation is exactly the opposite with qualified military personnel.

The biggest problem for the Indian army is an acute shortage of officers. Today, 9259 officers and more than 50 sergeant and rank and file positions remain vacant in the troops. Of which on navy the shortage of personnel is estimated at more than 16 people; in the air force - 000 soldiers.

To date, the Indian army has about 1,23 million military personnel with a full strength of almost 1,3 million people. Another order of a million people are in reserve. In terms of army size and military strength index, India is among the top five world leaders, reports "Warspot".

      This is enough for them to think .. laughing laughing . They like children love everything shiny and especially then break the toys!
      And the West is glad to bring them in a little expensive ... Russia only sighs, from this, imagining what will happen to them in the event of a serious military conflict. Buddha is their judge!

      A country with a caste division of the population. Cancel castes, recruit as many recruits as you like. The article did not cunningly note that only certain castes have the RIGHT to serve in the Indian army.

        Actually, Indian law does not recognize caste, and caste-based discrimination is prohibited.

      I thought a lot and still do not understand - HOW will they cast different castes in the same boat? belay After all, it’s worse there than on the Ship, in general ALL are equal there. After all, God forbid that - EVERYONE should fight shoulder to shoulder for vitality. And God forbid one caste considers "it is below our dignity" - they will drown all together. belay negative

      This you sepoy uprising led to the false conclusion that
      they are good soldiers.
      Where they take root is not India now, but Muslim Bangla Desh (former Bengal)

        Where they take root is not India now, but Muslim Bangla Desh (former Bengal)

        Initially, the British recruited sepoys from the local population of Bombay and Madras, special attention was paid to the caste and physique of the candidates. In the Bengal army, only representatives of the communities of the higher castes of the Brahmins and Rajaput were recruited, mainly from the Bihar and Uttar Pradesh regions

        With the emergence in 1719 of the French East India Company (Compagnie des Indes), detachments of Indian sepoys (cipayes) supplemented the units of the French military and Swiss mercenaries at the disposal of the company. A year later, the number of sepoys was 10. Under the Governor-General Duplet, sepoys began to form separate units, which, under subsidiary agreements, were sent to defend the allies of France of the Indian principalities, whose rulers themselves were required to support the subsidiary army

        Sipaev was recruited in Portuguese India, the term "cipaio" (sepoy) also referred to African soldiers in Angola, Mozambique and Portuguese Guinea and village officers. Angolan sepoys formed part of the Goa garrison in recent years of Portuguese rule over this territory.

          AND! - thank! drinks It turns out that sepoys are a broader concept,
          than I thought. I was sure that these were only soldiers recruited in Bengal.
          And they - like, "mercenary soldiers" from everywhere.

        Yes, and sepoys are not people, but hired soldiers from the local, mainly Muslim, population in the service of the British East India Company.
        Well, they rebelled, very quickly from the British PMCs they raked and died out laughing Too me, sepas.

    Well, perhaps this problem will be more difficult to solve than filling the warehouses with new weapons.

    There, it’s more about quality, not quantity. Instead of scribbling at the expense of lowering the price of our weapons, they would have to hire our sergeants and captains, substitutes who remember the traditions of the SA, and give free rein within the SA charters. Here, in a couple of years, they will be platooned, they will tear any company, current, so that the commander is not let down, more consequences of this, the Armageddian is resting wassat

    Of the Indians, warriors are like a dung bullet. I remember everything tank biathlon and Bshihmu. Even a high-quality and proven Russian tank cannot be assembled.
    Yes, and ostentatiousness kills, it seems that they have not an army, but a herd of roosters and clowns. In neighboring Pakistan, the situation is better.
