Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman handed over two categories of indigenised multi-fuel engines for powering main battle tanks to the Vice Chief of Army Staff on Saturday.



The engines were developed at the Engine Factory Avadi, Chennai, a unit of Ordnance Factory Board under the Department of Defence Production.

The engines have been fully indigenised for the first time under the Make-in-India Programme.

Speaking on the occasion, the Defence Minister said that the country aims to produce all its defence hardware indigenously.

She congratulated the EFA staff for achieving indigenization in both design and manufacture of these engines.

One of that is 1000 hp engine with Russisn design. We used to import many parts which are now been localized.
It says they were developed in Avadi so how could they be Russian designed?

"Developed in Avadi" is a misleading statement, instead, they just achieved 100% localisation of foreign parts. The design is still Russian.

"developed in an Indian psu"
Is like an original song by Bappi Lahiri
(Though you probably wouldn't understand the context- 80s Indian song "developer" who was regularly "inspired"

I said that it is designed. I do not say that they are manufactured. We were producing these machine here with 30% imported parts which is now been indigenized.
