There ars over 250+ PSUs in India it's a good 20 to 30 years away before we reach that point.
Other than this there is a need for a sweeping reforms in the PSU, hire and fire capability and corporate structure is a must.

Here is the list
In defence sector.

In that list of public sector enterprises, some of them are no longer in operation- Hindustan Cables( merged with OFB), BHPV( merged with BHEL), Burn Standard, Bharat Wagon and Engineering, Hindustan Photo Films, Praga Tools, Tungabhadra Steels, Tyre Corporation of India... One hopes that, if these other companies were not taken over by more successful PSU's, that their land is put to good use!

Former INS Tillanchang

Why are you so suprised , it has been around for donkey years , courtesy our dodo ofb, who did the path breaking effort of dumping the BMP 2 gun onto a naval vessel. It was and is the pinnacle of their awesome R&D efforts.

Thnx guys, checked it out. IMO this was a pretty adequate & available solution for a fast attack patrol craft.

Saurav Jha: So in that context what are some of the new tactical missile systems being developed under DRDO's recently unveiled 'missile autonomy mission?'

Avinash Chander: Our aim via the 'missile autonomy mission' is to cover a wider space as it were. Let me outline some of the new systems being progressed. A new man portable anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) for which design is over and hardware is getting developed. A Longer ranged SAM with a range of 200-250 km is on the drawing board. A quick reaction SAM which can track on move is well-advanced in the design stage. An anti-radiation missile and a long range anti-ship missile which can prevent aircraft carriers from coming within 1500-2000 km of our shores are also being pursued.


Saurav Jha: What is the status of the anti-radiation missile and the long range anti-ship missile?

Avinash Chander: For the anti-radiation missile design is in progress, in fact hardware is being readied for the first trials. We expect successful trials of this ARM from an aircraft in about the next three years.

The long range anti-ship missile is on the drawing board, and we are confident that in about six years we would be able to get it ready. The long range anti-ship missile is going to be a ballistic missile with a seeker which can hit ships at long range.

Saurav Jha: So this is a rough equivalent of the Chinese DF-21D anti-ship ballistic missile? An anti-access/area denial system?

Avinash Chander: Something like that yes. So as you can see almost the entire spectrum of missile capability is being addressed. And addressed to meet state of the art requirements thereby giving full teeth to our armed forces.
Just reposting

The 1500-2000 km range anti ship missile is a ballistic missile so cannot be the 1500 km range brahmos ( if 1500 km brahmos news is true ).
