Army to reduce regiments and HQ’s in N/E

Army Commander Jagath Jayasuriya said that the army is scaling down the number of different regimental and area headquarters and presence of troops in the North and East.

‘While scaling down the number of different regimental and area headquarters and presence of troops in the North and East, plans are afoot to assemble more and more battalions together to form only most required headquarters,” the Commander has said.

He also said that Sri Lanka Army is now completely ready for far-reaching reforms in its structural composition vis-à-vis ground realities, security and needs of island-wide ongoing development projects.
