Pande stated that “the Army will be right-sized so that human resource or manpower can be utilised effectively” to make the “teeth-to-tail” ratio effective with modernization and technological infusion.

“Niche Technologies like Artificial Intelligence, blockchain, quantum communications, unmanned systems, and directed energy weapons are also being indigenized,” said the Army chief, adding “we are confident that the Indian Army will fight and win future wars with Indian solutions.”
