Haryana pips Punjab in licences for defence production


Over the past decade, the Central government has issued only four industrial licences for manufacturing of defence equipment to companies in Punjab, making it among the lowest in the country.

On the other hand, neighbouring Haryana has marched quite ahead with 27 industrial licences issued since 2008, according to data compiled by the Ministry of Defence.

Rajasthan and Uttarakhand have also pipped Punjab by bagging eight and five licences, respectively. The state with the highest tally is Telangana with 66 licences followed by Karnataka and Maharashtra with 57 and 42, respectively. A total of 335 licences have been issued to companies in 20 states and Union Territories in the country.
