Not all need the gear. Besides, there is another tender for 1 lakh or so helmets more. Also there is a tender for ballistic vests. And Patkas will continue to be in service. Not that they are good enough, but they do provide ballistic protection, albeit not on top. Paramilitary have started modernisation as well. We can even expect them to be better geared up than army, considering army's shitty procurement methods.These are the best helmets one can use, from ergonomics, to effectiveness etc. but there are 1.2 million soldiers and 2 million Paramilitary.
