Export of DRDO Products
The efforts are on to identify the products and also to explore the possibilities of export of the products designed and developed by Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO). However, the first objective is to fulfill the requirements of our Armed Forces.
Achieving self-reliance in defence production is a joint responsibility that has to be met through national efforts by all Government agencies including Ministry of Defence, Defence Industries (both public and private), Ordnance Factories and DRDO. As per provisions in Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP), DRDO is concentrating only on development of strategic, complex and security sensitive systems. DRDO has developed a number of systems which have been inducted into Armed Forces.
The restructuring of DRDO is being undertaken as per recommendations of the Dr. Rama Rao Committee, as accepted by the Government, for improved functioning of the DRDO.
