    I fear this committee report too shall end in the bin. With elections coming up, Govts priorities are likely to be elsewhere. If the current govt doesn’t return to power then there is absolutely no chance that these recommendations will see the light of day
    Even if the present govt returns to power I doubt they’ll be able to discipline the bureaucracy well enough to force them to implement these reforms.

      I see it in a different way, I think if the current regime resume back they will come up with the new version of DRDO as they find lacks in it, Some necessary projects like AMCA is yet waiting, we are already behind in fifth generation game not just DRDO but HAL need to speed up, ADA & other similar institutions need to be revamped, we need to be 100% indigenous it shouldn’t remains limited upto designing & metals only if you will remain dependent for engine, avionics, radar, ejection seats, etc then in case of war this will create problems, hoping to see great things happening, optimistic as usual

    The core issue was that DRDO instead of concentrating in R&D was busy in realization, testing, field Trials of the systems (about 90% of manpower was busy in these activities). Second was nexus between DRDO scientists and the Private vendors leading to corruption. These vendors were designated as Production partners and the DPSUs were forced to buy from these vendors at highly inflated costs and poor quality. The DPSU were not allowed to develop alternate vendors. This led to rampart corruption and very high cost of equipments for the end users.
