Approvals in-principle given by the MoD for purchase of equipment by the Armed Forces between Mar 2007 and Sep 2010, could generate business worth as much as Rs.87,356 Crore for domestic non-state companies. The DAC has approved the “acceptance of necessity” (AoN) for orders worth Rs.40, 368 Crore in 2010 alone. Private Indian defence equipment makers will be allowed to tender for these projects.

Out of this, equipment worth Rs 30,330 Crore is to be under the “buy (Indian)” Category, Rs 33,814 Crore under the “make” Category, and Rs 8,000 Crore under “buy and make (Indian)” Category. These orders are at various stages of procurement—expression of interest, request for information / request for proposal, technical evaluation, field trials, opening of bids, contract negotiation, financial approval, signing of contract and stage-wise progress for deliveries. In addition, Indian Private Sector companies get orders for subsystems/components etc., from OFs, DRDO and DPSUs.
