Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said India should focus on indigenous defence production to become self-reliant in the area of security.“If India has to be self-reliant in the area of security according to our armed forces needs, we have to make our own weapons,” he said.
Laying the foundation stone for a Rs 5,000 crore greenfield helicopter project of HAL at Biderhalla Kaval in the district, Modi said government was encouraging defence manufacturing driven by the country’s scientists and engineers.
In his address to a large gathering at the event, Modi said Indian Armed Forces were ready to make any sacrifice for the country and they were second to none. “But the time has come now to ensure that the weapons and equipment they carried and used were also the best in the world,” he said.
Imported weapons were expensive and India spends huge sums of money for the purpose, Modi said. ”We import weapons from other countries to equip our armed forces. India not only spends crores of rupees but also gets relatively not so latest technology,” he said.
Modi said before striking a deal for imports, the Indian government, while entering into an agreement, seeks from the seller nations manufacturing part of the weapons in India.


This is the right decision for India, in spite of some self proclaimed experts belief that they can buy all the arms in the market.
