    The Defence Ministry on Friday cleared the purchase of air defence guns for the Air Force while decisions related to the new Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP) have been deferred to the next meeting likely to be held soon.

    The Defence Acquisition Council chaired by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar gave the Acceptance of Necessity for 61 flights of air defence guns for the Air Force, with each flight consisting of four guns, expected to cost Rs. 7,000 crore under the ‘Buy and Make’ procedure of the DPP.

    “It is an integrated system with radars and capable of shooting down small radar cross section targets like drones and low flying objects,” a senior official said.
