NEW DELHI (PTI): The Defence Ministry Tuesday accorded approval for procurement of military equipment and weapons, including two regiments of Aakash missile systems, at a cost of Rs 9,100 crore, officials said.

The acquisition proposals were approved by the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC), the ministry's highest decision making body on procurement.

The DAC also approved the design and development of test equipment for guided weapons systems for T90 tanks.

The Aakash missiles will be supplied by state-run Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL). It will be an upgraded version of the previously inducted Aakash missiles, officials said.
