    Eastern army commander Lt. General Dalbir Singh Suhag, tipped to take over from General Bikram Singh as the next Army Chief in August 2014, is all set to move to New Delhi as the next vice-chief.

    Sticking to the norm of getting the "chief-in-line" accustomed with South Block, the government has cleared his appointment to replace Lt. General S.K. Singh, who is retiring.

    Lt. General Dalbir Singh had got embroiled in a controversy when the previous Army Chief General V.K. Singh had imposed a discipline and vigilance promotion ban which was set aside, paving the way for his appointment as the eastern army commander.

    Along with Suhag, eastern air command chief Air Marshal R.K. Sharma will also move to New Delhi as the new IAF vice-chief.

    Sharma will replace Air Marshal Arup Raha who will take over as the next Chief of Air Staff on December 31.

    No Extensions are dished out to COAS in India. So a healthy succession procedure is kept going; while the institution is insulated from personal foibles.

    Eastern Command appears to be a favorite jumping ground to becoming Chief.

    It is irrelevant which command they held, from the general ranks onward, promotion is based purely on seniority, and neither merit nor importance of previous position matters.

    Bit of an off-topic. Don't like to open a separate thread...

    Why did you accept US award without govt clearance? Govt asks Army chief


    Just goes to show Civilian authorities tight grip on armed forces!

    Them being sikhs has nothing to do with it - they all reached those positions because of their individual merit. Let's not be like our neighbours, viewing everything through the blinkered lens of religion. They can be sikhs or hindus or muslims or pastafarians, for all I care.

    Any Indian soldier can become the COAS or army chief, naval chief, Air force chief etc for all I care given that he/she is the next in line, capable and patriotic to the core.
