    What a waste of taxpayer's money.

    Corporate social responsibility?

    crazy. Hope they take away the chariot and melt it down. Someone needs to be fired to set an example and a few other disciplined

    There are those who sing paeans about the DRDO and its achievements.

    Indeed, DRDO can do well, but this indicates that they are 'distracted' by extraneous activities.

    The following are worth noting:
    and
    There is no provision or funds allocated 'under the head of corporate social responsibility'.

    so, it was done with most of this (chariot) was donated by private vendors and parties,.

    Note: MOST.

    The the remainder - from where?

    And the private vendors are donating money for love and fresh air?

    This exposé is just one example of the many that are not even outed of the 'professionalism' of the DRDO that afflicts it from not being able to produce anything worthwhile for which the DRDO has been established.

    No wonder India has to look to foreign suppliers to equip the Armed Forces with indigenous weaponry.

    Quite disgraceful.

    Reminds me of the days of Nehru and Krishna Menon when the Ordnance factories was assigned to produce coffee machines and not weaponry.

    Even if the money (all or most) was donated by private entities, why should DRDO employees waste their man-hours on this project?
