Defence Minister says, import embargo on 101 items to be introduced to boost indigenisation of defence production

@rajnathsingh
The Ministry of Defence is now ready for a big push to the Atmanirbhar Bharat initiative. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said his ministry will introduce an import embargo on 101 items beyond the given timeline to boost indigenisation of defence production.

Mr Singh said the Prime minister has given a clarion call for a self-reliant India based on the five pillars, Economy, Infrastructure, System, Demography and Demand.

In a series of tweets, the Defence Minister said, taking cue from the Prime Minister's call, the Ministry of Defence has prepared a list of 101 items for which there would be an embargo on the import beyond the timeline indicated against them.

Mr Singh said this is a big step towards self-reliance in defence. He said this decision will offer a great opportunity to the Indian defence industry to manufacture the items in the embargoed  list by using their own design and development capabilities.
