Army Chief Gen. Bipin Rawat and top commanders are likely to deliberate Tuesday on carrying out major reforms in the force including organisational restructuring and its possible downsizing by around 1,00,000 troops, official sources said.
The sources said the top brass of the Army will discuss a host of issues including the long-pending cadre review and steps to make the world's second largest standing Army "leaner and meaner".
There have been indications that the Army may cut over 1,00,000 troops over the next five years as part of restructuring process. The current strength of the force is around 1.3 million personnel.
