Govt giving high priority for the modernisation of armed forces: Antony

NEW DELHI (BNS): India is focused on the development and modernisation of its Armed Forces and the proceeding is moving in fast pace, government said.

"The modernisation is undertaken through procurement of defence equipment/platforms in accordance with the provisions of Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP)," Defence Minister AK Antony said in Rajya sabha on Wednesday.

Modernisation of the Armed Forces is a continuous process based on threat perception, operational challenges, technological changes and available resources, he added.

However, delays sometimes occur in defence procurement projects due to several reasons such as insufficient and limited vendor base, non conformity of the offers to the Request for Proposal (RFP) conditions, field trials, complexities in contract negotiations, limited indigenous capability and long lead time for indigenization etc, he said.

All procurements for defence sector are guided by the Indian Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP) and the time-lines are given therein.
