The Defence Ministry has approved the 4th Positive Indigenisation List of 928 strategically-important Line Replacement Units, Sub-systems, Spares, and Components.
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has approved the fourth Positive Indigenisation List, with an import substitution value worth 715 crore rupees, to promote ‘Aatmanirbharta’ in defense and minimize imports by Defence Public Sector Undertakings.
The Defence Public Sector Undertakings will undertake the indigenization of these items through different routes under the ‘Make’ category and in-house development through the capabilities of MSMEs and private Indian industry. This will provide impetus to the growth in the economy, enhanced investment in defense, and reduction in import dependence of DPSUs. This will also augment the design capabilities of the domestic Defence industry by involving academia and research institutions.
