DAP 2020 damned with faint praise
India’s defence industry has praised the country’s DAP 2020. Analysts have voiced concerns over its aims. The Confederation of Indian Industry gushed that DAP-2020 has established pragmatic avenues for foreign OEMs to manufacture in India on their own and in collaboration with Indian industry. An analyst said is too complex, with 11 procurement categories, and reminded readers that similar glee accompanied the promulgation of DPP 2016.
