Defence Procurement Procedure made Indian Innovator friendly.

The DAC met under the Chairmanship of the Hon’ble Raksha Mantri on 11/01/2016 and key provisions of the DPP, as listed under have been approved.
  • Introduction of a new category of acquisition: Buy Indian (IDDM), to promote indigenous design development and manufacturing. Under this category, indigenously designed equipment with 40% indigenous content (IC), or equipment with 60% IC will be considered for acquisition. This category will be the most preferred acquisition category, above the existing ‘Buy (Indian)’ category.
  • Make II (Industry funded) – involves no funding by the Government for prototype development. However if RFP for the equipment developed, is not issued with two years from the successful prototype development, 100% refund for successful developers, who were selected through due process.

Hope it works. Most inventions or technologies are killed because the Evaluation Committee is loaded with people biased in favour of foreign technologies since they are packaged better. The calculations do not enter the minds of these persons that should India actually be in a was, it can be subject to sanctions and there is no way these foreign technologies can work in the event of their being no support in the form of spares and repairs. Good beginning nevertheless and hope there is an attempt to change the mindset also.
