Lt Gen Chauhan later told the media that he is proud to take on the responsibility of the highest rank in the Indian Armed Forces. He stated that as Chief of Defence Staff, he will strive to meet the expectations of the three armed forces. According to Lt Gen Chauhan, “we will face all challenges and difficulties together.”

Lt Gen Anil Chauhan will also serve as Secretary of Military Affairs. Lt Gen Anil Chauhan had held several command, staff, and instrumental appointments in his nearly 40-year career and had extensive experience in counter-insurgency operations in Jammu and Kashmir and North-East India.
