NEW DELHI (PTI): Indian Navy chief Admiral Sunil Lanba, who is the chairman of Chiefs of Staff Committee, on Tuesday launched a first of its kind document on joint training aimed at promoting synergy among the three services.

The document 'Joint Training Doctrine Indian Armed Forces -- 2017' has been prepared in a "collegiate manner" involving all the three service headquarters and flows from its mother and capstone doctrine namely, the 'Joint Doctrine Indian Armed Forces -- 2017' released in April this year, an Army official said.

The official noted that besides numerous advantages of the doctrines, the document will also go a long way in "fostering initiative" and "stimulating creativity" for promoting "integration" between the three services in times to come.

"The aim of the doctrine is to promote synergy and integration amongst the three services and other stake-holders leading to an enhanced efficiency and optimum utilisation of resources," the official said.

As a part of the modern warfare, thrust is being given on integration of all the three services in dealing with adversarial conditions.

Several western countries have been focusing on joint training of personnel of all the three services. The Gulf War in the 1990s is an example where all three services played a crucial role.

"The future battles will be fought in an environment where the Army Navy and the Air Force will have to fight as a cohesive unit. This document lays out basic framework on training involving all the three wings of the armed forces," the official said.

Thrust is also given on joint training in international military exercises. Armed force personnel of all the three wings recently underwent a similar exercise 'Indira 2017' with their Russian counterpart.

"This key stone doctrine will basically serve as a foundation and knowledge base from which specific directives and strategies will be issued by the Chairman Chiefs of Staff Committee to the Head Quarters Integrated Defence Services and Service Head Quarters to consolidate proven concepts, structures, mechanisms, capacities, capabilities etc, from time to time," the official said.
