Elite unit of the Armed Forces AFSOD begins operations

AFSODnewNew Delhi, May 15: The Armed Forces Special Operations Division (AFSOD), the elite unit of commandos drawn from all the three armed forces has begun functioning. An Major General from the Army is its first commander and he would be in the rank of a General Officer Commanding.

The AFSOD will have special forces of the Army, Marine Commando and the Garuda Commando force. This decision would not only bring the three forces under a common command, but would also reduce costs of training, administration and logistics.
