BIG PUSH: India Planning to Have ‘Missile Shield’ for Delhi

In a bid to safeguard its major cities from aerial attacks, India is in the process of acquiring defence systems from the US, Israel and Russia to ensure “a missile shield” over many places.

The air defence system will assist in preventing 9/11 type aerial attacks on Delhi and NCR.

Defence ministry officials have revealed that the country is in talks with the US for acquiring the National Advanced Surface-to-air missile system-II (NASAMS-II), worth an estimated $1 billion.
