The head of the Indian Army, General Bipin Rawat, on Wednesday said that there have been intelligence inputs about a possible terror attack on security establishments and that there was an urgent requirement for a better intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance system to keep an eye on adversaries on the western and northern borders of the country.

The Modi-led government appointed former Intelligence Bureau chief Dineshwar Sharma as the Special Representative for occupied Kashmir on Monday to "initiate and carry forward a dialogue with elected representatives, various orgamisations and concerned individuals in the [held] Kashmir".

The Army chief invited defense industry representatives to interact with the Army Design Bureau, which was established past year to indigenise procurements and reduce import dependence as part of the government's "Make in India" initiative.

"Government has given Dineshwar Sharma the task of an interlocutor so we need to give him time to see how he will work", said General Rawat at a FICCI seminar.

Rawat, speaking at a seminar on finding indigenous solutions to India's military needs, said private sector must join hands with the government to cater to the needs of security forces.

He added that the situation in Kashmir has improved and infiltration has come down. While the Indian Army responded with a successful surgical strike across the Line of Control with Pakistan on the intervening night of September 28 and 29, the Pathankot and Uri attacks had exposed chinks in the security of military installations. In this context, Gen Rawat also spoke about the Pathankot and Uri terror attacks, noting that security at military installations was becoming a matter of concern.

It was followed by a brazen attack at the Uri army base on September 18, 2016 which claimed the lives of 19 soldiers. We are also looking at Electronic Warfare (EW) system to keep an eye not just on borders but in hinterland also.
