In pursuance of “Atmanirbhar Bharat ‘(independent India) and to step up indigenization in the defense sector, Indian Interior Minister Rajnat Singh approved a proposal by the Ministry of Defense to notify a “Second Positive Indigenization List” of 108 points.

Press release from the Ministry of Defense Read:

All 108 items will now be purchased from local sources in accordance with the provisions of the Defense Acquisition Procedure (DAP) 2020.

The second list places a special focus on weapons / systems that are currently under development / testing and are likely to become solid orders in the future.

Like the first list, special attention has been paid to the substitution of ammunition imports, which is a recurring requirement.

This second list was prepared by the Ministry of Defense after several rounds of consultations with governmental and private confederations of the manufacturing industry to assess the future capabilities of Indian industry that will be able to meet the requirements of the armed forces. This list gives a constant boost to independence in defense.

The defense industry can use this golden opportunity to build solid R&D facilities, capacity and capabilities to meet the futuristic requirements of the armed forces. This list also provides an excellent opportunity for start-ups, as well as SMEs, which will receive a huge boost from this initiative.

To this end, the Ministry of Defense, the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and the Central Offices of Services (SHQ) will take all necessary steps, including retaining the industry, to ensure that the deadlines set out in the “Second list of positive indigenisations “have been met, thus facilitating the environment for Indian defense manufacturers to build world-class infrastructure, support the government’s” Make India “vision to make India independent in defense and develop export capabilities. in defense in the near future.

The second list of positive indigenization will be hosted on the MoD website.

In August 2020, the 101 Positive Indigenization list was announced, containing 101 points, in pursuance of the AtmaNirbhar Bharat Abhiyan government’s efforts and to strengthen indigenization in the defense sector.

At the time, it was also stressed that more such facilities would be identified gradually to facilitate and encourage defense production in the country.
