IDSA renamed as Manohar Parrikar Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses

IDSA renamed as Manohar Parrikar Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses: 'The Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses' (IDSA)  would be renamed as ‘Manohar Parrikar Institute for Defence Studies andAnalyses’ by the Central Government. The decision has been taken by the Central Government to honour the commitment and legacy of late Former CM of Goa Shri Manohar Parrikar. 

Late Manohar Parrikar, an epitome of integrity and dedication in public life, throughout his career, showed a tremendous fighting spirit, taking on the odds with fearlessness. Late Manohar Parrikar was Defence Minister from November 9, 2014 –March 14, 2017 and steered the Ministry through the tough challenges of Pathankot attack and Uri attack and responded to these with exemplary boldness.
India witnessed a series of decisions that enhanced India's security capacities, boosted indigenous defence production and bettered the lives of ex-servicemen during the time of late Manohar Parrikar. His biggest contribution was towards the implementation of long-standing One Rank One Pension (OROP) demand for the Indian Armed Forces. 

Late Manohar Parrikar initiated major military reforms with the objective of having better teeth-to-tail ratio by setting up an expert committee under Lt Gen (Retd) DB Shekatkar for enhancing combat capability and rebalancing defence expenditure.
