The Union Cabinet has accorded ‘in- principle’ approval to the setting up of Indian National Defence University (INDU) in District Gurgaon, Haryana.

In INDU it is proposed, inter alia, to conduct courses of varying durations on subjects ranging from Strategic Studies, War Gaming and Simulation, Neighbourhood Studies, Counter insurgency and Counter Terrorism, Chinese Studies, Evaluation of Strategic Thought, International Security Issues, Maritime Security Studies, Eurasian Studies, South East Asian Studies, material acquisition, joint logistics, national security strategy in peace and war, etc.

Setting up of INDU would not affect the pattern of selection and training through NDA and CDS. The existing institutions National Defence College (NDC), College of Defence Management (CDM), National Defence Academy (NDA) and Defence Services Staff College (DSSC) are proposed to be brought under the ambit of INDU without diluting their powers or autonomy.
