    Thiruvananthapuram: The defence ministry is readying to park its long-envisaged nanotechnology research hub in Thiruvananthapuram. Besides the cluster of R&D units, the centre will have a full-fledged production facility too, involving a spend of about R250 crore in the first phase. The new unit would work in conjunction with the Brahmos Aerospace Centre, which is a joint venture, with the Indian and Russian governments holding 50.5% and 49.5% share, respectively.

    250 Cr is too less IMO.

    250cr is the first phase investment. I think it is more than enough for initial construction and acquisition of equipment. Once it establishes itself, it can be expanded organically by increasing the departments and personnel and equipments.
