MoD ka dimaag kharaab hai, jab China ke saath tensions chal rahi hai tab unhone 94,000 carbines ka tender cancel kardiya aur make in India ka rona chaalu kar diya aur ab Army ko 2025 se pehle ek bhi new Carbine nahi milne waali.

Thats why I say, Atma Nirbhar Bharat in defence sector is joke coz under this slogan MoD can cancel any foreign deal for desi alternatives and further delaying it by half a decade. Lmao.

Army launches Secure Application for Internet (SAI)

Posted On: 29 OCT 2020 12:49PM by PIB Delhi



In the quest for ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’, Indian Army has developed a simple and secure messaging application named the “Secure Application for Internet (SAI)”. The application supports end to end secure voice, text and video calling services for Android platform over internet. The model is similar to commercially available messaging applications like Whatsapp, Telegram, SAMVAD and GIMS and utilises end to end encryption messaging protocol. SAI scores over on security features with local in-house servers and coding which can be tweaked as per requirements.


The application has been vetted by CERT-in empaneled auditor and Army Cyber Group. The process for filing Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), hosting the infrastructure on NIC and working on iOS platform is currently in progress. SAI will be utilised pan Army to facilitate secure messaging within the service.


The Raksha Mantri after reviewing the functionalities of the App complimented Col Sai Shankar for his skill and ingenuity for developing the application.

Hey bro in Short and very frankly, we are getting an AK-103 with 2 rails, one on the upper receiver and one on the lower hand guard and it is renamed as AK-203 for political gains.
And a new flash hider. That is the one really good part.

Is it true because I heard actually ak 203 will be manufactured
An AK-203 and AK-103 has basic differences like, AK-203 has a finger tab, 3 Rails 1 on upper receiver and 2 on upper and lower handguard respectively, has a foldable telescopic buttstock. But unfortunately in the name of cost cutting... we aren’t getting a foldable telescopic buttstock, a finger tab, rails on upper hand guard.

This is a real AK-203

So in short our so called AK-203s are just a bunch of AK-103s with rails on upper receiver and lower handguard.

Even Ladakh not spared, construction scams force Indian Army to rope in CBI

A series of alleged construction scams has forced the Indian Army to rope in the CBI to investigate and fix responsibility.

Exasperated by a series of alleged scams involving construction projects led by the Military Engineer Services (MES), including a massive fake bill racket uncovered in Ladakh during the current standoff, the Indian Army has decided to rope in the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to investigate and fix responsibility.
To kick things off, the Army has handed over a case involving an infamous Army Married Accommodation Project (MAP) in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh to the CBI, and is making a list of several other MES-handled constructions and activities that it wants the central agency to probe as part of a deep dive into the perceived construction rot.

The Meerut project involves faulty construction which has led to a situation where buildings have to be demolished.

Other cases that will likely be handed over to the CBI include a fake bill reported during departmental inquiries into MES construction projects in Leh, Bengaluru, Guwahati and Ahmednagar. The Army's decision to attempt an aggressive crackdown on deep-rooted incompetence and corruption in construction activity was triggered by a September letter written by Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) General Bipin Rawat to the three armed forces chiefs.

In the letter, written after a meeting with the Chief Vigilance Commissioner (CVC), General Rawat highlighted "wrong practices", "delays in payments" and "wrongdoings in MES procedures", declaring that it was "extremely embarrassing" to have had to face questions from CVC on these accounts. Apart from the Meerut project, General Rawat also highlighted other examples of rot, including Army buildings in Kolkata which had begun to tilt owing to shoddy construction, and, notably, a married accommodation project in Delhi's Salaria Officers' Enclave which he describes as a "warzone" in which "not a soul has been punished despite a detailed inquiry".

Weeks after General Rawat's scathing letter, in which he urges the three chiefs to "pinpoint and take to task" those found guilty in inquiries, the Army had to write off a Rs 125 crore ammunition storage depot constructed by the MES in Kanasar near Bikaner in Rajasthan.

Recently, the Court of Inquiry had found that "gross negligence, poor workmanship, poor quality material, has resulted in total loss of the project" and ordered a complete demolition. Accountability is yet to be assigned on individuals for the disastrous execution of a crucial project and loss of valuable resources.
India Today TV has learnt that the Army is formulating a list of activities that it wants to be investigated till the root. These include the rampant tailoring of tenders by the MES, suspicious customisations of requirements to suit certain parties, fudged bills and invoices and favouritism.

While construction controversies ailing the MES is one major aspect of the Army's concern, the other continues to be the land on which these construction projects are being built. The MoD, and organisations under it, own the largest tracts of land in the country, and acquiring such 'defence land' for public works projects like highways and metros has been a complex process leading to delays and meandering bureaucracy. While the erstwhile rules mandated that departments or states acquiring defence land needed to reimburse the MoD with land of equal value (EVL), new rules announced last week pave the way for a new model where the MoD or armed forces can be repaid with equal value infrastructure (EVI), where the buying entity will fund infrastructure construction of equal value on defence land for the selling entity.

While the new policy ostensibly solves a perceived problem and creates opportunities for the Army to monetise its enormous land holdings, there are concerns in sections of the Army over whether this could actually lessen the Army's leverage over its land. For instance, while the Army does have huge landholdings, it still lives with a deficiency of 1.4 lakh acres of 'A1' category land, which is earmarked for Army units. So far, 2100 acres of A1 land (1,500 acres of which are in Maharashtra), valued at Rs 22,000 crore, has already been acquired by state governments for development projects, with no reimbursement (even under the EVL provision) in sight.

In another small but important example cited by sources, the Officers Training Academy (OTA) in Chennai doesn't have a proper firing range, since the land that could have been used for one has been taken over by the Tamil Nadu government under earlier provisions, but no land has been provided as compensation to the armed forces.

While the Army has made no formal objections to the new EVI provisions, an internal debate is understood to have been stirred up over whether the new mechanism will be airtight to political whims and scams.

Political stunt, he will now take votes claiming he gave AK-203s to the soldiers whereas the only thing our so called AK-203 will have of an original AK-203 is an ergonomical pistol grip of AK-203, fuck even the handguard used is not of AK-203 it is of AK-103. So it is a political scam that AK-103 is being purchased under the name of AK-203.


The only hope I have is that the original AK-203 is purchased when the deal is inked and the AK-203 shown in DefExpo is a modified AK-103 mistakenly marked as AK-203 But as of now I don’t think so... look!

ए॰के॰-४७ से बेहतर होगी ए॰के॰-२०३, they only want something better than the AK-47 not something modern. Fuck bubutva, even corruption is found in ladakh border constructions.

At the inaugural Field Marshal KM Cariappa Memorial Lecture at New Delhi in October 1995, Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw narrated the following episode as a personal example of moral courage.

after removing everything that made it an AK-203, Sources, suggest that each rifle will cost around INR 80,000. If the same rifles are bought from Russian plant would cost around USD 850 which in current conversion price would be over INR 63,000 (1 USD = INR 75).

Well this are Russian National guards
AK 200

They cost probably $700 to $750.
Due to mass production of 200 series for Russian National guard force.
So approx ₹55000.

How is this a political stunt? Common people wont be able to differentiate between a Fab Modified AK and a AK 203. He would have got the same amount of votes if he showed the version we are getting bcoz common people cant really differentiate between the two.
