Opinion on Editorial “Incremental steps not enough”
It is welcoming step that the Defence Acquisition Council has approved a revised Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP), aimed at boosting indigenous defence procurementt and encouraging better participation from the Indian private sector. It is a step towards “Make in India”.Even for the developed countries, it is highly impossible to make sudden turn around in any existing policy. That to important matters like National defence. We need to consider all the aspects of the issue. It is easy to criticise any policy, but hard to suggest realistic alternatives. It is better that Defence procurement is moving slowly towards indigenisation.
