ORF Roundtable | Indian Military Modernisation: Challenges and Prospects

This roundtable builds on the recent ORF Special Report on military platform modernisation. The panelists will evaluate the platform acquisitions made by the Army, Navy, and Air Force between 2011 and 2021, and explore the trends for the forthcoming decade. All three services are unlikely to undergo dramatic transformation over the next ten years. The imperative is for the government to bridge the gap between the projected requirements for new platforms and weapons systems of the Indian armed forces, and the allocation of budgetary resources.
