Magazine Description

In this issue

Geopolitics' February 2020, a DefExpo Special, focuses on the potential of such exhibitions. Why should the present system of organising the DefExpo be done away with in favour of the British example of privatising the exhibition? Also, a look at why the 'Make in India' policy has not been effective in the defence sector. What is lacking in the policy to achieve the goal and ways of achieving it. Since independence, India has been one of the world's largest importers of weapons. From high altitude socks for the Indian army to aircraft carriers for the Indian navy and almost everything in between is imported in hard currency from abroad. Though the Modi government has taken up 'Make in India' with a lot of intent, the time has come for a clear roadmap to achieve that goal. The road map involves five elements. The magazine also focuses on the theme of DefExpo-2020, 'Digital Transformation of Defence', and brings to the forefront digital advances in the defence industry. There is also a detailed article on the activities of DPSUs. While some good work has been done by the Ordnance Factory Board and the DPSUs, the fact remains that their monopoly has not allowed the Indian defence sector to achieve its potential. This has stifled private sector participation and has killed innovation. Plus: Articles on Digitisation and its challenges for India's Armed Forces.
