‘Production of Defence equipment helping SMEs’


Indigenisation of defence manufacturing is helping Small and Medium scale enterprises (SMEs) in India scale global heights, Jayant Patil, Member of the Board (Defence) and senior executive vice-president, Larsen & Toubro (L&T), has said.

The K-9 Vajra-T self-propelled gun, which was inducted into the Army on Friday, is being developed by L&T in partnership with South Korea’s Hanwha Land Systems.
