    The armed forces of India ranks third over all. Their air force is the fourth largest in the world as a seperate unit. More information on the armed forces of India can be found at the link below.

    "Supreme command of India's armed forces -- the third-largest in the world -- rests with the president, but actual responsibility for national defense lies with the cabinet committee for political affairs under the chairmanship of the prime minister. The minister of defense is responsible to parliament for all defense matters. India's military command structure has no joint defense staff or unified command apparatus. The ministry of defense provides administrative and operational control over the three services through their respective chiefs of staff. The armed forces have always been loyal to constitutional authority and maintain a tradition of non-involvement in political affairs."
