From Balakot to post of Chief of Defence Staff, eventful 2019 for defence

From carrying out an airstrike at terror camps in Pakistan to the creation of Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) post and also from witnessing 'fidayeen' attack in Kashmir and to shooting down of a Mi-17 V5 helicopter in friendly fire, 2019 saw a year of highs and lows for the Indian defence sector. The year also witnessed various bilateral defence ties with other countries. In a landmark decision this year, the government created the post of Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) in the rank of a four-star General. The CDS will also head the Department of Military Affairs (DMA), to be created within the Ministry of Defence and function as its Secretary.
