Lt Gen Jatinder Singh who assumed the office of the NDA commandant on January 1, 2011 was to retire in October-November. Prior to this, the charge was held by a Naval officer. As evident, it was the turn of the Air Force to hold the office of the Commandant after Lt Gen Singh's retirement. However, the NDA Commandant's early exit led to speculation whether the new Commandant would be an Air Force officer or an Army officer.
The Indian Express was the first one to report that Lt Gen Ashok Singh, then the Corps Commander of Army's prestigious Mathura-based 1 Corps, was likely to take over as the Commandant of the NDA in the first week of August. Singh who took over the office in August is probably the first officer to have taken over the office of the NDA commandant after having commanded the formation of the level of a corps.
