India’s DAP 2020 – “indigenous content” is the new buzzword
India has published the final version of its Defence Acquisition Procedure (DAP) 2020. The new DAP trims the requirement for offsets and discards the Buy and Make procurement category. India will no longer demand offsets for government-to-government defence deals such as FMS and single-vendor contracts. It remains highly complex but gives preference to the domestic manufacture of complete defence products over components.
