Ensuring 100% Transparency In Defence Procurement A Priority: Nirmala Sitharaman


Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman today said her biggest priority is to ensure 100 per cent transparency in defence procurement while speeding up implementation of the long-pending acquisition process.

In an address to an industry body, she said the government has been encouraging the private sector to produce defence platforms for the armed forces, insisting that the recently-unveiled strategic partnership model is being implemented to support the domestic defence manufacturing.

The biggest compliance issue government is focusing on is to ensure 100 per cent transparency in defence acquisition, she said.

She also said the ministry is going to support start-ups in the defence sector.

The strategic partnership was unveiled nearly four months back under which domestic defence manufacturers can tie up with leading global defence majors to manufacture specific military platforms like fighter jets.
