  • The shoulder stripes — denoting rank — could also be moved to the front buttons, sources said adding it is a pattern followed by other major armies also.

Possible reasons for change in combat uniform:

  • According to an army official the overall aim is to have a combat dress made of “lighter but sturdy material”, which will be suitable for both summer and winters
  • The new combat uniform will be more durable and provide better camouflage.

Note: It has been implemented after studying uniforms worn by major armies across the world.

Now talking about Change in Regular Uniform of the Indian Army:

  • The army is planning on different coloured shirts and pants for the new uniform
  • Change in uniform comes amid Defence Ministry’s directive that prohibits other security personnel from wearing fatigues similar to the army.
  • In 2020 Army had requested the Centre to issue guidelines against widespread use its uniform by various armed police forces, state police and even insurgents in the northeast.
  • Along with this being a security concern, it also raised false alarms among the common public that Army has been called to the streets.

Note: Incidentally Indian Navy introduced a new camouflage uniform in 2020.

  • It is natural that One is emotionally attached with old stuff but time to evolve with time and needed to move on.. I really appreciated new uniform because Indian army needed to looks sophisticated and get Oneself camouflage during warfare. That’s more important than emotional stuff….
    Atlast army changing the uniform. Now will’ve digital uniform for more camouflage. Definitely it looks extraordinary , sophisticated and standard. >>Dhaer aye doorust ayee..👍👌👏.

    Some Poor and debt-ridden countries like pakistan have already digital uniform …
    I like the pattern very much but my personal view colour still needed to more lighter than darker. Somthing like US army colour. And of course quality of uniform should be European standard…
    If possible should keep two color one for Jungle and other mountain and desert warfare terrain to give more camouflage….
