About Us

Welcome to Arming India !

Arming India tracks the business and politics of India's growing defense trade and market, to provide you the most accurate, quality news at the right time.

As the Narendra Modi government signals intent to make India a manufacturing hub of the global defense industry, this expresses a vision that an integral military industrial complex is a must for India's emergence as an enduring world power.

While India has for long been a major customer for the global arms bazaar, the policy thrust for indigenisation of defense production makes it an exciting time for industry in India. India is estimated to spend $150 Billion till 2027 on defense procurement that would make it one among the world's top arms buyers over the next decade.

Arming India will inform relevant stake-holders and engage both the business and the men of arms. This portal will track the requirements of India's armed forces, the opportunity that presents itself to the industry, international partnerships, and cooperation, and also the progress of India's defense procurement programs.

Besides covering the big players in the business, Arming India will endeavor to highlight the growing capabilities of micro, small and medium enterprises in the defense sector. Keeping the industry up to date with practices in the Defense Procurement Procedure, Defense Procurement Manual and foreign investment and military budget will also be a focus area.

Content for this website will be provided by seasoned defense correspondents, who have reported and commented on these subjects for leading media houses for years. Arming India will have space for decision-takers, opinion-makers, commentators and practitioners from the military, bureaucracy and the industry to express their views and analysis. The idea is to get all the relevant stake-holders to engage in a debate that is productive and profitable in the larger interest of the nation's armed forces modernization.

Arming India aims to ultimately emerge as the first place where the stake-holders - be they uniformed armed forces personnel, decision-makers in the government and representatives of the industry - go to for fast, factual news, analysis and trends on India's defense business and to put the information to good use.
