NEW DELHI: Attempts by the central government at indigenization in a crucial sector such as Defence is getting pronounced. The ground work began in 2015, and the Defence Acquisition Procedure (DAP) put out last year had several new features that lays emphasis on ‘Make in India’. The idea is also to export military wares. Recently, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited got a mega order (worth ₹48,000 crore) to supply 83 Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) to the Indian Air Force. In this video chat with StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale, former deputy chief of Indian Army Lt Gen Subrata Saha (Retd) and former CMD of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited RK Tyagi discuss India’s journey from being one of the biggest arms importers to its ambition of achieving self-reliance in defence and more.
