Following the death of Chief of Defense Staff (CDS) General Bipin Rawat in a helicopter crash in Tamil Nadu on December 8, the central government has now begun the process of making further appointments to the post. The list of names prepared for the post based on the recommendations of the three services will soon be sent to Defense Minister Rajnath Singh for approval, officials said on Friday.

After approval from the Minister of Defense, the list is sent to the Cabinet Appointments Committee, which makes a final call on the new CDS appointment. Officials said the central government was finalizing a panel to select the successor to General Bipin Rawat, according to a news agency PTI article. The panel includes senior commanders of the Army, Navy and Air Force.

General MM Naravane’s name is at the top for the next CDS
The current Chief of Army Staff, General MM Narawane is believed to have topped his name for the next CDS based on his experience. He will retire in April next year. General Narawane is the most senior of the three service heads. Air Chief Marshal VR Chowdhury took over on September 30 and Chief of Naval Staff Admiral R Hari Kumar on November 30.

If General Narawane becomes CDS, he will be able to lead the army
If General Narawane is appointed as CDS, the government will also have to replace the Army Chief. In such a scenario, Lieutenant General CP Mohanty, Vice Chief of Army Staff and Northern Army Commander Lieutenant General YK Joshi would lead the race for the post of Army Chief. The two officers belong to the same batch and are the most senior after General Narawane. The two officers are due to retire on January 31.

Eleven people, including General Rawat, were killed in a tragic helicopter crash
General Rawat, his wife Madhulia and 11 other Army officers were killed in the December 8 crash. Air Force Group Captain Varun Singh, who survived the crash, died on Wednesday while receiving treatment. General Rawat took over as India’s first CDS on January 1 last year to enhance coordination between the three forces and modernize military prowess.
