Army Plans To Utilise Budget Judiciously To Meet Critical Requirements


Faced with a deficiency in ammunition, the Indian Army is working on a proposal to utilise its budget in a judicious way to meet its critical requirements, government officials said.

The plan is to spend less on certain types of ammunition, such as a particular missile and spares for vintage vehicles, and instead use that money on buying new equipment and procurement for making up the ammunition level for 10 (I), or 10 days of intense war.

But the situation is grave, because there will still be a requirement of additional funds to make up for the deficiency, the officials said. Read More
