Vimarsha - The Role of IAF in Changing Security Environment by ACM BS Dhanoa PVSM AVSM YSM VM ADC https://youtu.be/ooE8vLRfvVo

Watch this video from 27:00 to 36:00...
Dhanoaji talks about IAF's stand on Theater Commands and Jointness in Operations...
Though they're more or less the same points you'd have read in media & elsewhere, still it is interesting to hear them from the chief himself...

Still no word on CDS and the next IAF chief. BS Dhanoa retired in two weeks.

India’s first Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) is expected to be announced next month
excerpts
The people cited above also said that the CDS “will not be a paper tiger”, but someone whose advice will be binding on the three services chiefs.

They added that apart from being responsible for promoting jointmanship, the new CDS will be heading all tri-service structures, with the existing post of Integrated Defence Staff being converted into the Vice Chief of Defence Staff. The current IDS chief Lt Gen PS Rajeshwar is being posted to India’s only tri-service command at Andaman and Nicobar islands. He will succeed Vice-Admiral Bimal Verma, who is retiring on November 30.

Jointmanship, a key military doctrine, refers to coordination and integration of strategy, capabilities and execution across the three services.

The people said that though the CDS will carry four stars (like chiefs of the three services do), he will be the “first among equals”, with the task of prioritising hardware for future Indian military needs, allocating tri-services assets to the new theatre commands, and designating tasks to these formations.

The new CDS will be at the heart of Indian military diplomacy, spelling out the new jointmanship terms to break silos between the three services, which, experts say, have been prone to protecting their own turfs while joining hands only on common issues such as pay and pension.

Hope CDS won't become a rotating seniority post.
But chosen from the three chiefs.

An Implementation Committee which was to further determine and finalize the exact responsibilities, an enabling framework for #CDS and all other issues involved to ensure smooth operationalization, has submitted its report: Govt to Parliament. @ThePrintIndia
