Nation First News:  Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday released the third positive indigenisation list of 101 items, comprising major equipment/platforms, in New Delhi.

The list, notified by Department of Military Affairs, Ministry of Defence (MoD), lays special focus on equipment/systems, which are being developed and likely to translate into firm orders in next five years.

These weapons and platforms are planned to be indigenised progressively with effect from December 2022 to December 2027.

These 101 items will be procured from local sources as per provisions of Defence Acquisition Procedure (DAP) 2020.

These weapons & platforms will promote domestic industry and transform R&D and manufacturing in the country.

This third positive indigenisation list has been prepared after in-depth consultations with all stakeholders, such as Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO), Department of Defence Production (DDP), Service Headquarters (SHQs) and the private industry.

Rajnath Singh also handed over 30 agreements to domestic industry for transfer of 21 DRDO technologies.

Addressing the audience, the Defence Minister described the third list as a symbol of 360-degree efforts being made by the Government to achieve Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s vision of ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’.

Congratulating DRDO and the Industry, Rajnath Singh said, the handing over of 30 ToT agreements to the Industry shows the increasing trust of Indian industries in DRDO-developed indigenous technologies. This will further strengthen the manufacturing eco-system in defence systems and platforms.
