Draft DPP 2020: Outlines Two Scenarios for Strategic Partnership Model

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh unveiled the draft of Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP) 2020 on 20 March in the Ministry of Defence.

The DPP outlines the procedure for procurement of capital equipment for the armed forces. First published in 2002, the procedure is to be updated every two years. While the last one was published in 2016, at the DefExpo in Goa by late Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, there was a delay in formalising the Chapter on Strategic Partnership and the processes related to the same.

Speaking on the occasion, Raksha Mantri [Defence Minister] said, “Our aim is to make India self-reliant and a global manufacturing hub. The government is constantly striving to formulate policies to empower the private industry, including MSMEs in order to develop the eco-system for indigenous defence production. The defence industry of India is a strategically important sector having huge potential for growth. It needs to be the catalyst for India’s economic growth and realisation of our global ambitions.” Shri Rajnath Singh added, “With the experience gained by the industry and the Ministry of Defence (MoD), it is now time to take further steps to strengthen ‘Make in India’ initiative, refine Life Cycle Support of procured equipment & platforms and hasten the defence acquisition process by further simplifying the procedures & reducing the overall procurement timelines.”................................
