New Delhi [India], November 14 (ANI): In an endeavour to promote 'synergy' and 'integration' amongst the Army, Navy and Air Force, the armed forces on Tuesday released a joint training doctrine.

Titled "Joint Training Doctrine, Indian Armed Forces - 2017" was released by the chiefs of staff committee, comprising Admiral Sunil Lanba, Air Chief Marshal B. S. Dhanoa and Geneal Bipin Rawat.

It is for the first time in the history of the armed forces that such a keystone document has been promulgated.
