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.

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
