No plan from DRDO yet

  1. Context: Report by Parliamentary Standing Committee on Defence
  2. Concerns: Even after 58 years [after establishment], there is no clear-cut technological road map prepared
  3. Also many projects had been closed at the initial stage itself as well as delay in certain major projects
  4. Wasteful expenditure incurred by DRDO on closure of major projects like Airborne Surveillance Platform, Cargo Ammunition
  5. Also some other projects like GPS-based system as an alternative to fire direction radar and several air-defence gun systems
  6. Panel has called for scientific, technical and concurrent audit of all ongoing DRDO projects by an independent agency
