    Make in India - In doledrum because of indecision.

    HIGHLIGHTS


    • Rs 11,929-crore project to encourage Indian private sector to enter aerospace manufacturing.
    • This despite the fact the Defence Acquisitions Council in May 2015 had approved the Tata-Airbus project.
    • MoD sources said the ‘Avro-replacement’ project is “going around in circles” at the commercial negotiations stage.




    Much before the government finalised the new "strategic partnership" policy six months ago to boost the Indian private sector's role in defence production, the country's first major military aircraft manufacturing project for domestic firms with foreign collaboration was initiated over six years ago.


    But the Rs 11,929 crore project for manufacturing 56 medium transport aircraft by the
    Tata-Airbus consortium to replace the IAF's aging Avro fleet is still nowhere close to being inked, defence ministry sources said on Monday.


    This despite the fact the
    Defence Acquisitions Council (DAC) in May 2015, headed by the then defence minister Manohar Parrikar, had approved the Tata-Airbus project in what was seen to be a bold move after the previous UPA regime had developed cold feet under strong pressure from the PSU lobby.

    This is yet another example of how the entire 'Make in India' policy in defence production continues to flounder due to convoluted procedures, bureaucratic bottle-necks, turf wars and the lack of the requisite political decisiveness. At least six major Make in India projects collectively worth over Rs 3.5 lakh crore are stuck at different stages without the actual contracts being signed, as was reported by TOI last month.

    Make in India' seems like so many other seemingly decent initiatives that end up being drowned in paper work.
