China's Central Military Commission (CMC) said it has completed an eight-month inspection of military reform.

The CMC issued a notice to the military to learn lessons from the 65 typical cases of discipline violations and corruption discovered during the inspection.

Inspectors visited almost 1,000 military entities above regiment level, including theater commands, military service branches and military educational institutions.

Inspectors surveyed over 50,000 officers and soldiers and handled over 1,400 petitions and tips, the commission said.

Major military structural reform began at the end of 2015.

The following month, the four general departments - staff, politics, logistics and armaments - were reorganized into 15 agencies. Five theater commands replaced the seven military area commands on February 1, 2016.

A key feature of the reform is a smaller ground force.
