In a significant step toward Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s clarion call for ‘Aatmanirbharta’, Defence Acquisition Council on Monday cleared capital acquisition proposals of the Armed Forces amounting to ?76,390 crore to ‘Buy (Indian)’, ‘Buy & Make (Indian)’ and ‘Buy (Indian-IDDM)’ categories. The decision came during a Defence Acquisition Council meeting chaired by Raksha Mantri Rajnath Singh. This step will significantly boost the Indian Defence Industry and reduce foreign spending, the defence ministry said.
