After Defence Corridor, A Defence Investors’ Cell To Be Set-Up In Up Under Nirmala Sitharaman


A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the setting up of a defence industrial corridor in Bundelkhand region, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said on Thursday that a Defence Investors’ Cell will be made under her guidance to ensure speedy development of the corridor.

“We will soon constitute a task force and send teams to Aligarh, Agra, Jhansi, Kanpur and Lucknow to discuss how will the defence be working in the next 50 years. A portal will be available to answer all the queries round the clock,” the defence minister said during the concluding day of UP Investors’ Summit here.
