The Indian Army is planning to raise Integrated Battle Groups, which would help in carrying out swift strikes along the borders with Pakistan. IBGs are self-contained, agile, brigade sized fighting units. IBGs are meant for faster, punitive and defensive actions. Each IBG will be headed by a Major General. The integrated units for the border will be all-encompassing, along with artillery units, armoured vehicles, combat engineers and signal units.The composition of every IBG would differ on the basis of the terrain where it is located e. g. IGBs operating in the mountains will be different from ones operating in plains.
