    Ideas and suggestions of Dr. Vidya Sagar Abburi when gets implemented would be a great step forward for the Indian Defence indigenisation (and self reliance) effort. Great read which provided me an insight into Avantel’s activities.

  2. devendra l thakur

    years of patience in building indigenous technology for the defense sector by avantel will surely pay off commercially. The current govt has taken very serious measures to support MSMEs like avantel to localise defence technology requirements and save precious foreign currency. I strongly believe that the govt implement the current DPP POLICY swiftly and take full advantage of services of companies like Avantel who have put decades of hard work in developing the technologies. This will keep the defense personnel update with all the latest gadgets of communication and increase/improve their efficiency levels. Dr Vidya Sagar Abburi can really change the technology landscape of our defense sector. Wish him all the very best in all his future endeavors
