Working Towards Creating an Enabling Policy Environment
The Government of India is refining policies to promote self-reliance, indigenisation, technology upgradations and economies of scale in India’s defence manufacturing sector. SIDM acts as the voice of the Industry and works closely with the Government and the Forces to help shape a conducive policy environment for the growth of the defence industry in India.
SIDM has played an instrumental role in the formulation of key policies related to the Aerospace & Defence sector such as the Defence Acquisition Procedure (DAP) 2020, Draft Defence Procurement Manual (DPM) 2020, Draft Defence Production & Export Promotion Policy (DPEPP) 2020 as well as both the first and second positive indigenisation list. In fact, the change in name of the DPP (Defence Procurement Procedure) to DAP was also recommended by SIDM.
