Lt Gen Jasbir Singh to head Infantry

The government has appointed Lt Gen Jasbir Singh as the new Director General of Infantry at the Army headquarters in New Delhi, a month after the post fell vacant following the retirement of incumbent Lt Gen Rajendra Singh.

Commissioned in the Dogra regiment in 1972, Lt Gen Jasbir Singh is an alumnus of National Defence Academy and a graduate of Defence Services Staff College, Wellington.

During his 36 years of service, he has held various staff and command appointments, which include a three-year-long tenure as Defence Attache in Myanmar.

He has commanded an infantry battalion and division in counter-insurgency operations in Jammu & Kashmir and a brigade in the western sector.
