Lt Gen Anil Chauhan (retd) has been appointed the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS). He will also function as the Secretary, Department of Military Affairs. The posts had been vacant since Gen Bipin Rawat died in a helicopter crash in December last year.
The government order which came this evening, however, did not mention General Chauhan’s tenure. It simply said he would be the CDS and Secretary, DMA, “until further orders”.
