Harshit Mangla & Dishant Tiwari, Damodaram Sanjivayya National Law University.
This paper examines military security as the fundamental iron fist in enforcing national security. The use of military force for resolving a dispute may seem as a thing of the past due to rapid enhancement in international laws but in the end the national security of any nation depends on its military advancement, self sufficiency, technical know-how and proper utilisation of available military infrastructure in the time of conflict. An effort has been made to describe and relate the meaning of security, national security and military security. Military supremacy is at the core of a secure state and its importance has been recognised in India since the ages and the references can be found in Chanakya's Arthashastra also. An insight to the legislation governing military security in India is stated. The challenges including military expenditure, strained relationship with neighbouring countries, changing allies, changing geopolitical position of India and conquering of security threats in view of national security are also discussed.
