    In recent years, the Indian government has taken several steps to promote defence manufacturing in the country. These include the introduction of various policy initiatives such as the Defence Procurement Policy (DPP) and the Make in India programme. These initiatives aim to create a conducive environment for defence manufacturing in the country and encourage private sector participation in this sector.

    The approval of these nine defence equipment manufacturing projects in Telangana is a testament to the government’s commitment to promoting domestic manufacturing in the defence sector. It is expected that these projects will not only contribute to the development of the local economy but also enhance India’s defence capabilities.
