Need to increase reserve force on LAC
According to sources, stability has now come in many areas, that is, terrorism is almost over. Whereas on the other hand it was necessary to increase the reserve force on the LAC. So many soldiers were stationed there. An official said the army is deployed where it is needed. Therefore, now the idea of ending the headquarters of Delta Force is being considered. Similarly, the study has been recommended to reduce the troops in many other places as well.
Indian army has 12 lakh 18 thousand soldiers
At present, the Indian Army is of 12 lakh 18 thousand soldiers. The log term plan is that out of this 1.75 lakhs have to be reduced. According to a senior official, steps are being taken in the direction of modernization of the army and technology is being used more.

Target to reduce one lakh soldiers
Tooth-to-tail ratio is the ratio between soldiers participating in military operations and those who deliver logistics to them. If the number of soldiers who do not participate in direct military action is high, then the number of soldiers required for actual military action will decrease. Therefore, if the number of soldiers required for military operations is to be kept more, then the tail will have to be reduced. On the question of the Standing Committee on how the tooth-to-tail ratio will be reduced, the CDS had said in an oral reply that the target is to reduce about one lakh soldiers in 3-4 years.
