Jun 17, 2019


  •        Indian exporters need to diversify product line for better international market exposure

 

 

NEW DELHI, 17 June 2019: Mr Sanjay Jaju, JS (DIP), Department of Defence Production Ministry of Defence, Government of India today said that government will, within a month, launch new 'Open General Export License' scheme to boost Indian defence exports.

 

Speaking at the 'Workshop for Defence Export Promotion' organised by FICCI, Mr Jaju said through the new license industry will be able to access international market and make the products more competitive. He further said that the production will also become better, both qualitatively and will also provide value for money for Indian customer. "We are working on launching the Open General Export License where the entire process of taking permission from government will also be further reduced."

 

Mr Jaju stated that Indian exporters need to diversify the product line to be internationally competitive. "It is important for us to now look at platforms and while looking at these platforms, it is important that we are competitive and able to provide good value for money to the buyer."

 

Further highlighting the potential of defence exports, Mr Jaju stated that Indian manufacturing economy is likely to reach USD 1 trillion in next five years of which he expects USD 25 billion would come from the defence sector and further USD 5 billion to be generated by exports. 

 

Rear Admiral Atul Khanna, Additional Director General Quality Assurance (Naval), DGQA, Ministry of Defence said that the Indian defence industry is currently undergoing through a tectonic phase. "Demand side is moving much faster and the catch-up between demand and production is not happening. Given the policy level changes happened over last 5 years, next decade is going to turn the tides," he added.

 

Cmde Mukesh Bhargava, Member - National Defence Committee of FICCI and ED & Member of Board, L&T Defence said that one of the major challenges faced by the private defence industry while exporting is the question of the value of goods sold to our own forces. He further said that Defence is a priority sector for the government under the Make In India plan.
