On Wednesday, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh approved the relocation of 206 Army officers from Delhi to their original field units as part of the reorganisation of the Army headquarters. Besides the approval to relocate the officers, Rajnath Singh also gave approvals for the creation of a separate vigilance cell under the Chief of Army Staff (COAS). All the decisions were taken on the basis of an internal study conducted by the Army Headquarters.

Besides these, the Army Headquarters will also form a unit under the Vice Chief of Army Staff (VCOAS) in order to focus entirely on issues of human rights. The Army officers who will be relocated to their field units from the Army Headquarters include three Major Generals, eight Brigadiers, nine Colonels, and 186 Lt Colonels.

The vigilance cell under the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) will have a tri-services representation. Presently, the vigilance function for the COAS has multiple agencies and there is no single point interface. An independent vigilance cell will be made functional under COAS as approved by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh.
