New Delhi: Harping on the need to remain
relevant in the changing security environment, Army Chief
General V K Singh on Tuesday favoured "outsourcing" training to
benefit from the practices in the civil sector.

There was a "need for outsourcing in order to adopt civil
industry methodologies, as applicable in the environment, to
attain maximum advantage," he told a two-day Army Training
Command seminar `Review of Training`.

Training was the backbone on which all other battle-
winning factors depend, he said adding, "the Indian Army,
thus, needs to structure training to meet the challenges of
the contemporary and future battlefield."

The Army Chief also emphasised on the need for working
out a mechanism to assist in making an "unbiased assessment"
of training at all levels.

During the seminar, the officials agreed on the
requirement for establishing training needs based on future
security environment and to make it more "result-oriented,
cost-effective and responsive" and to increase synergy in
training to meet challenges and obligations.

The Seminar also noted that "rapidly upgrading
technology" will be the driving force in the future war
fighting paradigm.

Army Vice Chief Lt Gen P C Bhardwaj, Army Training
Command head Lt Gen A S Lamba along with a number of senior
officers in-charge of training in armed forces also attended
the seminar.
