Manufacturing of defence aerospace, warship items to be covered by IDRA: DIPP


Manufacturing of items of defence aerospace and warships will now be covered by Industries (Development and Regulation) Act and will not require any licence from the the commerce and industry ministry, a government notification said.

The Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), under the ministry, has issued a notification clarifying the defence products’ list requiring compulsory licence under Industries (Development & Regulation) Act, 1951 (IDRA), and Arms Act, 1959 in consultation with Ministry of Home Affairs and Department of Defence Production.

“Items of defence aerospace and warships now do not require licence under Arms Act. Such items shall now be covered by IDRA,” the department said in a tweet.
