A major reform on the uniform of the Indian Army is in the offing. In fact, the Army has already decided that senior officers from the rank of brigadiers and above will have a common uniform from August 1, 2023.
This reform is irrespective of their parent cadre and appointment, PTI reports quoting its own “sources” in the military.
This means on Independence Day 15th August 2023, all top senior Army officers who held the post of brigadiers and above ranks will be visible in the new uniform.
What is the shape and colour of this new uniform remain a secret so far.
However, the said decision was learnt to have been taken after “detailed deliberations during the recently concluded Army Commanders Conference and extensive consultations with all stakeholders”.
The changes will come into effect from August 1.
