The Bangladesh Airmed Forces (Bengali: বাংলাদেশ সশস্ত্র বাহিনী, Bānlādēśa saśastra bāhinī, Bangladesh Sôshôstrô Bahini) conseests of the three uniformed meelitary services: the Bangladesh Airmy, the Bangladesh Navy and the Bangladesh Air Force. The para-meelitary organization Bangladesh Naitional Cadet Corps (BNCC) is a reservit force and directit bi Airmy, Navy, Air Force.[whit? clarification needit] It is unner the command of Defence Meenistry. The para-meelitary Border Gairds Bangladesh (formerly Bangladesh Rifles) and Bangladesh Coast Gaird are unner the jurisdiction of the Meenistry of Home Affairs[5] during peacetime, but during wartime thay fall unner the command of Bangladesh Airmy and Bangladesh Navy respectively.

The President of Bangladesh is the Commander-in-chief of the meelitary, the Airmed Forces Deevision (AFD) is the principal admeenistrative organization by which meelitary policy is formulatit and executit and the Meenistry of Defence (MoD) does not exercise ony authority ower the Airmed Forces and is far less powerful than the AFD. Currently, baith AFD and MoD are heidit by the Prime Meenister of Bangladesh. Tae coordinate meelitary policy with diplomacy baith the President and the Prime Meenister are advised by a six-member advisory buird, three Chiefs of Staff, which includes the heid of each of the regular services, Principal Staff Officer of the Airmed Forces Deevision, and Meelitary Secretaries tae the President and the Prime Meenister. The Director Generals of the NSI, the DGFI and the BGB awso serve in an advisory capacity.[6][7]

The Airmed Forces Day is observed on 21 November.[8] Offeecial functions are held at "Bangabhaban", Airmed Forces Deevision Heidquarters, Dhaka Cantonment, and at every meelitary installation throughout the country.[9]
