Defence planning has been neglected for long in India. This has led to ad hocism in decision making and adversely affected the modernization plans of the services. This volume brings out in detail the inadequacies in our planning process the lack of a cohesive national security strategy/defence policy and inadequate coordination of defence planning and economic development. Long term perspective planning is still a sum total of respective service plans. Also in the absence of Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) there is a lack of inter services prioritization. The key issues needing immediate attention include the need for formal prior approval for five year defence plans better management of the defence revenue and capital acquisition budgets streamlining the defence procurement process and better human resource management. The chapters written by renowned defence professionals including two former chiefs comprehensively and critically examine the issues involved in the defence planning process and make a number of recommendations for policy planners in India. 202 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 60458
