The AMC not only attends to the sick and wounded, but also performs the equally important task of prevention of diseases and practice social hygiene on a large scale. The Corps is organised on the most advanced lines and has well earned the name it deserves. The AMC has its own hospitals that are some of the best equipped and managed in the country.


Mechanised Forces Modernisation Imperatives by Lt Gen Dalip Bhardwaj


Lt Gen Dalip Bhardwaj PVSM, VSM (Retd)

The future infantry combat vehicle (FICV) was cleared as the first “Make in India” project by the private sector in 2010. It was an opportunity for the private defence sector companies to gear up their R&D cells, tie-up with foreign defence companies and develop their manufacturing infrastructure to enable them to enter the defence segment in a short time frame. However due to procrastination of all stakeholders the project has been inexplicably delayed. With the impetus being given to indigenous manufacture it is expected that this project will be put on the fast track and part of the delay incurred be retrieved. This is only possible if a dedicated team is earmarked for the project and it is monitored at the highest level.

It is not the case that the Indian defence system had been groping directionless all these years, but what is meant is that the system had been afflicted by transitory commitments, tentative planning and unsteady fiscal support from the state.
