New Army and Air Force Chief of India

Lt Gen Bipin Rawat appointed army chief, Air Marshal BS Dhanoa is new air force Chief

Lt Gen Bipin Rawat was named India’s next army chief on Saturday, as the government abandoned a three-decades-old tradition of elevating senior-most officers as military chiefs.

It, however, stuck to the practice in elevating vice chief air marshal BS Dhanoa – a Kargil war veteran – as the next head of the Indian Air Force.
