Ammunition Related Incidents: Machines in Ordnance Factories need to be modernised urges a former general


The machines in the Ordnance Factories need to be modernised and re-skilling of the personnel working on the machines need to be addressed on urgent basis by the government, urges a former army general. “Ammunition” is the actual weapon of the soldier and loss of confidence in indigenous munitions amongst soldiers is a matter of serious concern, says Lt Gen Anil Ahuja.

Indian Ordnance factories have long been in the business of manufacturing munitions for the armed forces and there are countries which look upon India with great confidence to set up their ammunition factories. However, according to Ahuja, “Our Ordnance Factories with legacy machines and practices are modernising only incrementally.

The state of art, multi-operation and high-speed manufacturing machinery, which ensure consistency in quality have been slow in coming and the re-skilling of personnel has been even slower. This needs to be addressed with utmost urgency.” Read More
