About the Researcher:

An alumnus of Sherwood College Naini Tal, the National Defence Academy, Khadakvasla and the National Defence College, New Delhi, Major General Dhruv Katoch was commissioned in the DOGRA Regiment on 31 March 1972. In a distinguished career span of nearly four decades, he has held instructional assignments in the Infantry School, Mhow and The Indian Military Academy, Dehradun and senior staff appointments at the brigade, division and Corps levels. Besides the NDC, the General Officer is a graduate of the Defence Services Staff College, Wellington and the Higher Command Course, Mhow. He has vast experience in sub conventional conflict, having taken part in IPKF operations in Sri Lanka as also operations against terrorists and insurgents in J&K and various states of North East India. He was commended by the Chief of Army Staff for operations against militants in Sri Lanka and was awarded Sena Medal while in command of his battalion in active operations on the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir. He has commanded a Sector as well as a division in the North East and subsequently retired as Chief of Staff of an operational Corps. The General writes on defence and security related issues. He also writes on non military matters – both fiction and issues of societal concern.
