ANSWER
MINISTER OF DEFENCE (SHRI RAJNATH SINGH)

(a) to (d): The Report of the Shekatkar Committee constituted to recommend measures to enhance combat capability was submitted in December 2016. It was taken up by the Ministry of Defence to frame key action points and roadmap for implementation and a total of 99 recommendations were forwarded for implementation to concerned agencies/stakeholders.

The Report and its recommendations are not being placed in the public domain as it includes operational aspects of the armed forces, disclosure of which is not in the interest of national security.

Improving operational capabilities is a continuous process and requisite measures as required are taken from time to time.
