    Nuclear Command Authority (NCA)who exactly does this comprise of ? the political machinery predominantly or the armed forces and as natural the big question is does the political machinery have the will to call shots during a time of nuclear emergency.

    Who is in the council I think is classified except for the fact that the PM is executive head. But I think it should include the defense,home, external and finance ministers and the three service chiefs.

    Strategic developments are made public.

    Are these really elevated times to start considering possible nuclear confrontation? Geopolitical situation is way too complicated than 2001 if to compare nuclear standoff.

    Where's the SFC HQ?
    We got the army mobilization timeframe. What can be the possible nuclear reaction time from Indian end? Is it rehearsed?

    Is this the exact time we should mount Chief of Defense?

    Nothing has changed nrj. It was a routine meeting which has been hyped up by the media considering the last couple of weeks or so.

    I believe last time decision was pending between Jaipur or Pune for SFC HQ. Who knows maybe it'll purposefully remain so.

    CDS can be crucial in co-ordinating the response effort in adversaries.

    i would like to have one SFC HQ in central India and 4 regional SFC HQs in all the four locations in India, since SFC HQ will be one of the first target of any enemy nukes. Therefore any one of the surviving regional SFC HQ will work in its place and take over command of SF.
