Recently, the Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi addressed the webinar on effective implementation of the Union Budget provisions in the defence sector. During his address, the Prime Minister said that the webinar was of great significance as it focused on the important issue of making the country’s defence sector self-reliant.

The Prime Minister said that the defence corridors that are being built in the country today would also help local entrepreneurs and local manufacturing. That is, today, self-sufficiency in our defence sector has to be seen as the empowerment of these two fronts – “Jawan as well as Youth”.

The key announcements in the Union Budget related to Defence Sector are as follows and we seek ideas and suggestions from the public and other stakeholders on the same:
• Budgeted expenditure for capital outlay in defence increased by approx. 19%, highest in 15 years
• Disinvestment aimed in the sector to increase opportunities for private players
• Reduction in customs duty rates to nil for import of parts by public sector units (under Ministry of Defence) for manufacturing of aircrafts and parts

मैं एक आम नागरिक बोल रहा हूं पहले से ही भारत में पेट्रोल के दाम बढ़ने से आम नागरिक परेशान है जिससे कि भारत में वस्तुओं की दाम बढ़ गया है तथा विभिन्न क्षेत्रों का निजीकरण करने से अन्य सेवाओं भी महंगी हो गई है जैसे कि रेलवे का प्लेटफार्म अब 50 में मिलता है बैंकिंग सेवाएं भी निजीकरण के कारण महंगी हो जाएंगी वैसे ही जीवन जीना मुश्किल था अब निजीकरण के कारण और महंगी हो जाएंगी कोरना काल में वैसे ही परेशानी अधिक है निजी करण के कारण शिक्षा स्वास्थ्य रेलवे तथा बैंकिंग सेवाएं महंगी जाएंगे, लोकतंत्र हित न

I dislike nil customs duty for importing parts, why not support local manufacturing instead? It may require larger initial financial support, but is better in long term to develop local expertise.

At least push for technology transfer if currently the PSUs need to import parts, and convince Indian companies to work on indigenous production.

We have even 4th gen+ fighter tech, HAL could do JV for small commercial aircraft with local companies to create a foundation for aeronautics mfg while adding a revenue stream. Crop dusters, geo mapping, traffic monitoring, air ambulance, aerial tourism are some use cases that also have an export market.

If any nuts & bolts, or other parts are common to Tejas, then commercial manufacturing scale could also bring down their cost considerably.

Earlier, we wrote to mygovindia the same. Today as well the same question arises. Why the Government of India fail to focus on road sector in border areas where our jawans convoy are facing problems during the summer.

This is the first most priority on defense sector.
