NEW DELHI (PTI): Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday reviewed implementation of the two defence industrial corridors which aim to boost military production.

In his 2018 budget speech, the then Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had proposed setting up of the two corridors.

The first corridor will link Chennai with a number of industrial clusters including Hosur, Salem, Coimbatore and Tiruchirappalli. The second corridor is being set up in Uttar Pradesh.

In a meeting, a presentation was made before Singh highlighting various aspects of the two corridors, officials said.

"During the meeting, the Defence Minister directed the officials to speed up the process of setting up the corridors," the Defence Ministry said in a release.

"It was also suggested to hire resource persons as the defence sector is highly complex. It was also discussed that for investments to materialise in the defence corridors, assured order for defence items was the primary driving force," it said.

Top officials of the defence ministry were present in the meeting.
