In ‘Atmanirbhar’ push, India to make 108 military equipment
LUCKNOW: In a fresh impetus to its flagship Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan, India will soon start indigenous production of 108 military equipment, including complex defence systems. Defence minister Rajnath Singh likely to make a formal announcement in this regard next week.
Speaking to reporters in his parliamentary constituency Lucknow, Rajnath said that this would raise the bar of India’s defence capability. He said that various defence projects, including the BrahMos unit in Lucknow, are being fast-tracked, adding that the ministry was committed to lend its full support to the defence production and lessen dependency on imports.
The development comes less than a year after the Centre approved the ban on import of the said number of equipment. The ban on import of 49 of the 108 items came into effect by the end of 2021 while the remaining 59 will be banned by the end of December 2025.
According to media reports, the list of equipment which will be produced indigenously include sensors, simulators, sonars, radars, assorted weapons, helicopters, next generation corvettes, Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) systems, tank engines, medium power radars for mountains, medium-range surface-to-air missile systems (MRSAM), and much more.
But, then how would the Congress have made Billions in commission ?
Nehru/Gandhi family are biggest arms dealers of all time. No military weapon deal under Congress rule is done without their commission.
quality of the product and the human resource would always be a challenge. So far our ability to deliver a globally acceptable products has not been up to mark.
What a ridiculous country. The kongis are not even allowed to make their birthright commission from arms purchases through their middlemen.
Will foreign manufacturers manufacturing in India be eligible? It would help speed up indigenization and technology updates. The MIG-21 program is a classic example of indigenization gone wrong. Like Fiat and Ambassador cars, they kept making the same thing until it became obsolete by several decades.
CAA,NRC, COMMON CIVIL CODE AND POPULATION CONTROL IS THE PRIORITY.
IF INDIRA DIDNOT BRING GOONDAS TO BE POLITICIANS NATIONALIZE THE BANKS -THE COUNTRY COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER. NOW POPULATION CONTROL MUST BE THE PRIORITY.
WHAT took the moron EIGHT YEARS to realize that by the time a piece of purchasd equipment arrives, its outdated???
India to make...guys this is a jumla, it's still not made! Mostly they will import 95% parts from China and then assemble in India with sticker to fool the public. Same is happening in e-commerce, banned AliExpress but import is allowed in bulk.
A country like Israel with a population that will fit inside Antilia has far more advanced weapons. The fourth most powerful country imports weapons from them lol.
Import was the mantra for previous governments as it was one of the source of money generation by use of middle men or so called agents
You Better ask this question to Gandhi Parivaar who are responsible for all the ill doings and making India manufacturing deficient in armament industry!
Modi needs to do a lot more. He's had two terms now.
This will pnly happen when our army and air force both of them give huge orders and DRDO and HAL. both dont delay in deliverys
Hope massive investment in quality control is also done, because at present it's virtually non-exstent.

prevent agents of China Pakistan mafia terrorists naxalites cia in the production centres snd design centres
Proud and happy to see Infia becoming Aatmanirbhar in my life time........Support Modi if you love india...i want to see Indian to be in top three economy in the world before i die!!
An Initiative leads to sleepless nights to Anti Nationals. We have to concentrate simply not only production but keep on upgrading technologically with high quality. Congratulation to all scientists and Government of India
Hindu's are going to invent new deadly weapons world has never seen before just wait and see. God bless Hindu and Hindustan.
Now Congi-Commie DALALS will be shouting and running to NYT and Amnesty and US think tanks saying there is emergency situation in India becoz we can't make any commission money.
first design, develop and produce an indigenous pistol/ rifle for army, a country which can send mission to mars does not produce a decent small arm.
The perfect decision, and give opportunity to chanalise the skill and labour of Indian people.
