  • Reports noted that the Ministry of Defence (MoD) is “abandoning competitive bid” to award a Rs. 10,000 crore contract to develop Tactical Communication System (TCS) for the Army. The move could sideline six private sector companies - Wipro, Mahindra Defence Systems, Tata Power, L&T, Rolta and HCL, who were earlier vetted to participate in the contract. The state-owned Bharat Electronics Ltd (BEL) is most likely to get the contract. The TCS will be a fully mobile network which will allow the Army to “safely communicate and transfer data.”1
