‘Committed to modernisation of armed forces’

The Government of India is committed to modernisation of armed forces and most of it will be done through indigenously developed weapons systems. Only when there is dire need will import be resorted to, said Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday.
Participating in the Golden Jubilee celebrations of Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL) at Kanchanbagh here, Mr. Singh lauded the public sector unit for producing close to one lakh missiles for the armed forces in the last few decades. “The government is committed to indigenous development of weapons systems for self-reliance and also to tackle unemployment and promote entrepreneurship. So there will be more orders coming to BDL,” he said.
The government is keen to export the systems and hoped that by 2025 it will see appreciable growth, said the Defence Minister. Mr. Singh said Indian defence architecture and principles were based on “restraint, balance and then get offensive”.
