NEW DELHI (PTI): Facing an acute shortage of officers in its Special Forces, the Indian Army has decided to send two passing-out officers each from its academies to these elite units.

“We have shortage of over 60 per cent officers in our Para (SF) units. We would now be sending two volunteer officers each to these battalions right after they pass out from our academies such as the Indian Military Academy in Dehradun and Officers Training Academy (OTA) in Chennai,” a senior Army official told PTI here, Sunday.

Out of the sanctioned strength of around 35 officers, the official said, these units have only 10-12 officers.

“More than half of the officers on the strength of these units are out doing their mandatory courses in our various schools and centres.”
