New Delhi: Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat on Saturday reiterated the call for Make In India Defence initiative.
“The Indian Defence Sector is today at an inflection point poised to take off. The Government and the Indian Armed Forces have clearly demonstrated their resolve and commitment to the Make In India Defence initiative. We are fully committed to winning India’s wars with Indian Solutions,” he said.
“In this era of multidimensional technology, we must focus on constant innovations and modern technological solutions, to keep ourselves ahead of the adversaries. Keeping in mind the macro-economic parameters and socio-economic requirement of our country we have to work through the budgetary constraints by finding the best solutions through new acquisitions and optimization/upgradation of legacy systems,” he added.
“The creation of the Department of Military Affairs (DMA), headed by the CDS, having a central Staffing Scheme along with amendments to GOI Business Rules, in effect, admits the military into the central edifice of the Government of India,” he said.
