Establishing India's Military Readiness Concerns and Strategy

IDSA Monograph Series No. 5

Military readiness is perhaps one of the least studied and understood concepts in the field of strategic studies.

This often results in readiness assessments that are either too narrow or too broad. An analytical framework to assess levels of military readiness at the national level against well defined criteria therefore becomes a critical policy imperative.
