Centre approves key appointments in department of military affairs

The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC), headed by the Prime Minister, has cleared the appointment of senior military officers as additional secretary and joint secretaries in the department of military affairs (DMA) under the defence ministry.

In an order issued late on Wednesday, the ACC approved the appointment of Lieutenant General Anil Puri as additional secretary in the DMA. It also cleared Major General K Narayanan, Rear Admiral Kapil Mohan Dhir and Air Vice Marshal Hardeep Bains for the posts of joint secretary in the department.

Chief of defence staff General Bipin Rawat heads the DMA as its secretary. The DMA was set up by a gazette notification issued on December 30, 2019.

Puri and the other three officers were already holding these posts in the DMA in officiating capacities but did have the powers vested in the positions as the government had not formally approved the appointments, officials familiar with the developments said on Thursday.
