if you show the same chart with defence budget in crores on Y axis, it would show a different story.

if you add ancillary spending on Tibet border infrastructure from Ladakh to Arunachal, it would show even more different story.
True defence budget increased in absolute terms but
*GDP to Defence budget ratio
*Defence budget as a percentage of central government budget
its decreasing year on year
In the time of peace its a manageable budget allocation (2020 budget of 2% GDP)
Now India facing default times in borders.
Equipment's are aging fast
IAF squadron's are below 30
Navy Ambition are facing difficult time
Now India should aim for 3%+ of GDP as defence budget (excluding pension)

No mention of defence budget in the speech of FM. Will now have to wait for the digital copy of budget to come. Bad sign

FM didn’t mention about defence budget in her speech now I am sure they have decreased defence budget that’s why they’re trying to hide

These idiots are compromising national security for elections if they’re decreasing the defence budget and if they think that they can fool the common man then they’re making a huge mistake UPA made same mistake and is out of power for last 10 years

So 65.6 billion USD it’s lower than previous defence budget of 71 billion dollars but our economy has shrunk by more than 10% as well
