In lieu of the private sector’s participation to improve India’s defence production base, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) has introduced certain guidelines that would enable it (private sector) to better utilize the Indian Government’s testing facilities that had been previously made available to them. All defence equipment that is produced to meet the requirements of the armed forces or is exported to friendly foreign countries, must be subjected to rigorous qualification testing and certification by Government authorities before being delivered to the end user. In this regard, the Government had opened up its testing facilities to be used by the private industry so as to expedite the production and supply of defence materials/equipment.
