The Aerospace and Defence (A&D) sector in India are evolving rapidly and is critical to India’s long term strategic interests and ambitions. The government is committed towards making India a vital part of the global defence manufacturing ecosystem and reduce reliance on imports to meet the needs of the armed forces. Accordingly, the government has introduced procurement policies to promote indigenous design, development, and manufacturing. There are ambitious targets that have been set for export of defence equipment from India, and reforms are underway in enhancing the efficiency of the government organisations namely Defence Public Sector Undertakings (DPSUs).
