In a move to enhance self-sufficiency in the defence sector, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 19th October 2022 announced the 4th positive indigenisation list during the ongoing 12th edition of the Defense expo 2022 in Gujarat.

The list includes 101 items which now will only be procured from indigenous sources as per provisions given in Defence Acquisition Procedure (DAP) 2020. This list provides continuous impetus towards self-reliance in defence.

The items in the list include highly complex systems, sensors, weapons and ammunition. As per the estimates, more than Rs 1,75,000 Cr worth of orders would be placed in Indian Industry in the next 5-10 years. This would further stimulate the potential of Domestic Research & Development by attracting new investment into technology and manufacturing capabilities. 

As per the press release of  PIB, “The items listed in the fourth list will provide ample visibility and opportunity for the domestic defence industry for understanding the trend and futuristic needs of the Armed Forces and create requisite R&D and manufacturing capacity within the country.”

Self-sufficiency in Defence production will help to safeguard the long-term security of India. It will also give a significant boost to the domestic industry engaged in the design, development and manufacturing of weapons and platforms. 

Positive Indigenisation Lists is one of the landmark initiatives towards achieving  ‘Aatmanirbharta’ in defence. This is to transform the defence sector to achieve self-reliance and boost the export of Defence items with the active participation of the public and private sectors. 

During his address to the nation on the occasion of the 76th independence day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also appreciated the efforts taken for indigenisation through the Positive Lists. 

The Ministry of Defence had earlier promulgated ‘First, Second and Third Positive Indigenisation Lists’, comprising 310 items on August 21, 2020, May 31, 2021, and April 07, 2022, respectively. 

This fourth list recognises the growing capacity and capabilities of the Indian defence industry and is likely to stimulate the potential of domestic research & development by attracting new investment into technology and manufacturing capabilities.
