It would try to achieve enhanced self-reliance in defence manufacturing, and to leverage the economic opportunity present in developing the Indian defence industry. There is an immense potential in leveraging the manpower and engineering capability within the country for attaining self-reliance in design, development, and manufacturing in defence sector. It is therefore of utmost importance that the concept of ‘Make in India’ remains the focal point of the defence acquisition policy/procedure. DPP focuses on institutionalizing, streamlining, and simplifying defence procurement procedure to give a boost to ‘Make in India’ initiative of the Government of India, by promoting indigenous design, development and manufacturing of defence equipment, platforms, systems and subsystems. The policy would make the system more transparent and cut out delays But the centerpiece of the new policy is to boost home grown defence industry. At the heart of the DPP is a new category for indigenously designed, developed and manufactured equipment. The new DPP would help India reduce its dependency on foreign countries and source defence equipment within India. It would also provide greater thrust to the ‘Make in India’ initiative in defence production. DPP-2016 has introduced a new procurement category, Buy (Indian–Indigenously Designed, Developed and Manufactured), or ‘Buy (Indian – IDDM)’. It will set the tone for a new procurement regime with a clear intention to boost the ‘Make in India’ initiative in the defence sector, and to speed up the procurement process. Thus, the DPP favors a swift Defence Procurement Procedure which would help in decision making and delegating powers to the appropriate authorities to ensure an efficient and effective implementation of the procurement process, by all the stakeholders concerned. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
