Chief of Defence Staff Gen Bipin Rawat today called for revamping India's defence public sector undertakings and ordnance factories with a focus on improving their work culture and enhancing quality control. General Rawat also said that some of India's vintage military platforms, with retrofits, can be exported to countries that lack the desired firepower to defend themselves.  

Speaking at a seminar, he pitched for having a hard look at the distribution of India's defence expenditure, saying a realistic analysis of the spending must be carried out for proper utilisation of resources.

General Rawat said the stage is set for the domestic industry to embark on a trajectory of exponential growth, riding on path-breaking reforms rolled out by the government to promote indigenous production of military assets. He said, Corporatisation including the public listing of some units would be a way forward to ensure a more efficient interface with the designer end-user.


The Chief of Defence Staff urged the private industry to invest in building long-term capabilities for the application of decisive military power.
