The Defence Planning Committee (DPC) headed by National Security Advisor, Ajit Doval has been working on the National Security Strategy (NSS) and will submit the same soon. It would be made public after the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) accepts the same.
The NSS which is the military doctrine is expected to define India’s position on no first use. Further the doctrine would also define the military threats to India. This definition would be used by the Indian military to decide on the amount of ammunition needed to be kept in stock. Currently India has an ammunition inventory for a 10 days intensive war. The doctrine would also spell out if the Indian Navy needs more aircraft carriers.
