    Many times I read that indigenous products by DRDO are rejected because of Import lobby since inducting such products can cut their commission.It has been said that there are some officers in the Indian armed forces, baboos, media persons and politicians who for their own commission/benefit start a propaganda against indigenous products e.g. first any officer will count the deficiencies (in exaggerated manner), then a media person will publish it in his blog, then a media channel or newspaper will publish this creating stir among the Indians and suggesting that a foreign product is better for the armed forces, eventually a concord will be arrived where everyone will start to accept that a foreign product should be inducted, a negative perception gets created that a particular indigenous product is inferior, then a RFP and other processes will start, delaying the timely procurement, jeopardizing the safety and security of the nation. Such things have been reported in the past so I am opening a thread dedicated to the import lobby and related news, @mods are free to tkae decision on it.

    Try to post the crooked and biased articles/news against indigenous products in this thread, try to find out the persons who are responsible behind this.The more we point out such things the better it would be for our armed forces. Discuss.

    The arms agents and lobbies have destroyed the indigenous products. IAF and Indian army suffering the most.

    Navy is successful in indigenization but we need to improve and establish R & D centers since most of the components like Radars and missiles are from other countries.
