Government Wants To Extend ‘Make In India’ Plan To Planes, Drones, Says Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu


The government wants to extend the ‘Make in India’ initiative to planes and drones and not just import the entire requirement in the coming years, Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu said today. India will need more than 1,300 planes in the next few years, he said. “We do not want 1,300 planes to be bought from abroad. We will make them in India,” he told PTI.

He said the ministry will work together with its defence counterparts to look at civilian and defence aircraft requirements. The second priority, he said, is going to be drones as this sector holds huge potential. “It is a big market and India has a huge potential for that. So we will work on drones,” he added. Using high end technology like artificial intelligence and robotics in the airlines industry will be another priority area for the ministry, Prabhu said. Read More…
