Magazine Description

In this issue

The focus for the August issue of Geopolitics is on: Make in India. Will the Modi government be able to usher in a new era for the country's defence industry by placing private arms manufacturers at the heart of its mission to transform India into an industrial power? However, there should be a thrust on local products which should be competitively priced because the defence budget cannot be made to sustain and bankroll an inefficient local production regime. Unless an indigenous product is priced attractively with a developed eco-system, mission 'Make in India' will remain a pipe dream. Also, a detailed look at the problems facing India's OFB and DPSUs that make the foreign partners uneasy. Most of the problems emanate with the excessive delays and cost overruns associated with manufacturing inefficiency as well as poor quality control. In the international section, Geopolitics looks at how due to complementarities in Japan and India's development cooperation approaches and their blossoming strategic convergences, both are exploring the possibilities of trilateral cooperation with the continent of Africa. Also: An extract from Professor Saifuddin Soz's recent book on why armed militancy has been rising in Kashmir. Plus: All regular features.
