Nod for new defence procurement procedure

New Delhi, Jan 11 (IANS) A new Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP) emphasising on higher indigenisation was approved on Monday by the Defence Acquisition Council led by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, government sources said.

The sources said the new DPP will give high priority to indigenous design and development in line with the ‘Make in India’ programme of the Narendra Modi government.

Last month, Parrikar said the new DPP aimed at removing the procedural difficulties in the procurement process.

A committee was appointed by the defence ministry to evolve a policy framework to facilitate the ‘Make in India’ initiative in defence manufacturing and suggest requisite amendments in DPP-2013 to remove bottlenecks in the procurement process and also simplify and rationalise various aspects of defence buying.
