The title makes it obivious about what this thread is about, we all know the huge short comings in DRDO. Let alone parts of the Missile development program(MDP). Almost everything else is either stuck perpetually or abandoned. Many projects that would be considered easy even in small island states like Singapore, we end up spending millions to buy like the TAR rifles from Israel or a Howitzer which are pretty much the lower rungs of Defense development and mandatory for a large nation such as India. So where is it going wrong, what are the causes of it and should it be privatized whole sale?
