India’s Army to Upgrade 2,000 Military Stations

The Indian Army will modernize 2,000 military stations and develop them in line with the government’s smart city initiative. 58 military stations have already been identified as part of the pilot project.

“We are looking at developing the military stations as smart cities where all modern amenities will be made available. Developing a state-of-the-art IT network will be a key feature,” said a senior Army official.
