I think in next five to ten years in certain sectors, for example missile sector, while we have developed missiles we have not been very successful in developing assault rifles or the smallest things which the army carries or for that matter even a bullet proof jacket. I am still struggling to get a good Indian product on bullet proof jackets. Though I am happy that recently some success in Chandigarh has been achieved but I think that these are low-end technologies where why we can’t succeed “

STORY: India’s Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Monday (September 23) urged the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) to be more productive to reduce the quantum of international help in maintaining its weaponry.

Addressing a conference of DRDO in New Delhi, Parrikar made a strong pitch to improve the production of weaponry in the nation.

“We still need international help in many of the technologies. I think in next five to ten years in certain sectors, for example missile sector, while we have developed missiles we have not been very successful in developing assault rifles or the smallest things which the army carries or for that matter even a bullet proof jacket. I am still struggling to get a good Indian product on bullet proof jackets. Though I am happy that recently some success in Chandigarh has been achieved but I think that these are low-end technologies where why we can’t succeed,” he said.

Parrikar also asked the DRDO to advance its relations with all the three wings of armed forces for better results.

“It is also important that DRDO interacts with armed forces. It interacts with the navy, it interacts with air force and I am pleased to say that interaction with navy seems to be quite matured but the other two wings also need to have a proper interaction and DRDO needs to interact with them because many times technology are developed which may not be very useful on actual battle field,” Parrikar said.

Parrikar also spoke about improving the export potential in the coming years.

Indian companies are investing billions to build anything from armoured trucks, to guns and submarines, as they race to win a share of the roughly $100 billion in defence deals New Delhi has said it will ring-fence for domestic firms over the next decade.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has vowed to modernise the country’s poorly-equipped military by turning India into a defence manufacturing hub that would end its status as the world’s largest arms importer.
