    Agree that govt wants to be among top five defence n space manufacturers and the policy (draft) is a leap of faith. How will govt turnaround the mindset well entrenched in OFBs, DPS Us and mainly HAL (Who is defaulting on a simple Tejas delivery despite best efforts fm govt) will be the key.

    Also there are committed people in DRDO but not all are that way. If defence R & D is going to be purely DRDO baby and that R & Dis the feeder for Defence production, except few labs who can deliver, govt should forget its target date.

    Overall, with new policy, new strategy and a brand new set up for production, may be with private sector, seem to be a way out is 2025 is sacrosanct.

    However, one should be always optimistic despite overall pessimism around you. Let’s hope we meet the ambitious target.

    Unless the MoD gets rid of Department of Defence Production (DDP) each Defence Procurement Procedure released will end up as ‘audacity of delusion’. It is a case of ‘conflict of interest’ with the seller (DDP) also being the buyer (DoD).
