The new DPP policy has also refined the ‘Make’ procedure to ensure increased participation of the Indian industry. It has split the existing ‘Make’ category of projects into Make I and Make II. Under the Make I category, it will be the government that will finance majority (upto 90%) of the cost of production of defence equipments while under Make-II, the majority of the funding will be by the industry. Acknowledging the contributions of the Small and Medium Scale Industries in Defence Sector, quoting that many innovative ideas have come from these sectors, the defence minister Manohar Parrikar said the policy aims at enhancing the role of MSMEs in defence sector. This, he said, is one of the defining features of DPP. While releasing the policy, Parrikar said his ministry is proactively working in promoting the PM Narendra Modi’s Make in India. Parrikar said the DPP-2016 will provide a push to the ‘Make in India’ campaign.
