Description

One of the most arduous tasks before strategic decision makers in the field of security deals with the twin problems of military production and procurement. Fast-paced technology environment and changing security dynamics at the national and international levels are other consequential factors.

India has been struggling with these problems for a long time. To look into both the generics and specifics, many reform initiatives have been undertaken in India's national security management structure. This book attempts to lay out the broad problems in India’s military production and procurement efforts and to examine these in the context of the larger security framework of the country.

COMMENTS

“If India’s national aspirations revolve around the attainment of a certain degree of strategic autonomy in international affairs, do her military modernization efforts play a role in it? If so, then up to what extent? What do trends in India’s recent modernization efforts entail? To what extent has India’s quest for self-reliance in defense impinged its military power? These are some of the key questions that need to be examined in detail.”
