Indian military hardware made in India

New Delhi: Presently, all ships and submarines on order are being constructed in Indian shipyards. The Indian Navy promulgated the ‘Indian Naval Indigenisation Plan 2015-30’ in July 2015, which attempts to formulate the requirements of the Indian Navy towards indigenous development of equipment and systems over the next 15 years.

The document identifies capability gaps for indigenisation and lists out such equipment that can be taken up for indigenisation. The Defence Procurement Procedure – 16 focuses on institutionalizing, streaming and simplifying procedure to give boost to ‘Make in India’ initiative through indigenous design, development and manufacturing of defence equipment, platforms and systems.

A new category of procurement, namely Buy {Indian – Indigenous Design, Development and Manufacturing (IDDM)}, has been included in the programme. DPP-16 on ‘Make’ procedure allows 2 distinct phases: development and procurement.

This information was given by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar in a written reply to Bhola Singh in Lok Sabha today.
