    The issues of the Department of Defence Production pertain to the development of indigenous production capability in the sphere of defence. This is very important both from strategic requirements point of view, as also how we look at ourselves as a country, how we look at our future and where we want to be seen in the community of nations. It is also important from the point of view of strategic independence. That is why indigenous defence production base is important to us and that is why this accent on indigenous manufacture of defence equipment. We spend a lot of money on acquiring weapon systems, platforms and equipment. It is intended that money should go into creating jobs in our own country. Every procurement has a multiplier effect and every rupee spent here has a down stream effect. This is the reason for supporting indigenous production.
