According to the report, the Government of India has proposed several changes to ‘reduce expenditure’ and ‘better use of resources’ of the army. The newspaper says that this has created a stir in the army.

The proposal includes closing the Army Day celebrations to be held on 15 January (Army Day), closing the parade of individual regiments to be held on 9 October, closing private mess for military officers and closing the CSD canteens.

These suggestions are part of a report prepared in the wake of a review of the Army’s internal system. The proposal called for a reduction in the number of army bands, pipes and drums used in the Republic Day and Beating Retreat Ceremony from 30 to 18.
