Indigenous helicopters and fire control systems gets approval from defence ministry

The Ministry of Defence has given a green signal for the procurement of indigenous helicopters, fire control systems, and naval guns through a fast clearance process. The defence acquisition council (DAC), which is led by Rajnath Singh, approved clearances worth Rs 7965 crores on Monday. 

The official approvals for acquiring 12 Light Utility Helicopters (LUH) from Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) have come through. The first helicopter sets will be delivered before August 2022. Apart from indigenous choppers, the DAC has also cleared the procurement of the Lynx U2 Fire Control System from Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL).  

The officials of defence ministry said that the procurement of naval guns from abroad has been foreclosed and in turn, the quality of those guns will be added to the enhanced Super Rapid Gun Mount (SRGM) which will be manufactured by Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL).  

The above decisions have been taken keeping in mind the government’s bid to promote ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ and ‘Make in India’ campaigns. These are some steps to make India self-reliant in the defence sector.
