    One cannot disagree with the articulation made by Rear Adm Sudharshan. Q&Q is an important issue and we need PPP model in Defence Production in a big way. Some innovative mechanisms out of box thinking is required to create capacity in Pvt sectors to get into defence production in a big way to enhance Indigenous manufacturing content so that life cycle support is provided by Indian Companies/JVs that is essential to meet any eventuality at any time.

      Krish, you are right. Actually, we need to have not only private players coming in, but PPP firms as well as PSUs/ DPSUs all working at much greater levels of efficiency and at much deeper levels of commitment than at present. These aspects would be covered in subsequent parts of course. Sudarshan Shrikhande
